CranioSacral Therapy (CST) is a light touch therapy that works with the nervous system.
CST encourages the body’s own innate ability to heal. By tapping into the wave of cerebro-spinal fluid that surrounds the brain, a craniosacral practitioner is able to assist the body’s healing process through deep listening and encouragement. The cerebro-spinal fluid has a pulse and this gives the practitioner information about the healing state of the body
This therapy is a comprehensive mind body approach that treats the whole person. In the session you will be fully clothed lying on the massage couch. Using soft touch, a practitioner gently places her hands on various parts of the body to monitor the rhythm of the fluid flowing around the central nervous system. There is no manipulation of muscles. The treatment is very relaxing.
CST is increasingly used as a preventative measure and may be effective for a wide range of medical problems associated with pain and dysfunction, including:
- Chronic pain
- Stress and tension-related problems
- Digestion issues
- Chronic fatigue
- Post surgical dysfunctions / neck/shoulder problems / knees
