Craniosacral Therapy Session

45 min


Service Description

Craniosacral Therapy, or CST, is a gentle and holistic approach to healing developed by John Upledger in the 1970s. This hands-on osteopathic therapy revolves around the craniosacral system, which encompasses the central nervous system, as well as the surrounding membranes and cerebrospinal fluid that safeguard the brain and spinal cord. CST uses the power of light touch to create rhythmic pulsations, facilitating the body's natural ability to heal itself. Our bodies endure daily physical challenges that can lead to the contraction and distortion of tissues around the brain and spinal cord. These distortions can affect the central nervous system and other cells it interacts with. However, through gentle touch techniques, CST therapists can identify and correct these limitations. During a session, therapists use their hands to assess the craniosacral system's rhythm and fluid motion, addressing any restrictions that may be impeding the central nervous system. CST can be a valuable therapeutic tool for a wide range of physical and psychological conditions, including but not limited to: - Autism - Back Pain - Brain injury - Chronic fatigue - Colic - Concussion - Dementia - Fibromyalgia - Immune disorders - Migraines - Neck pain - Post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD) - Scoliosis - Spinal cord injury - Stress In addition to providing relief from chronic pain, headaches, and stress, CST has been known to benefit individuals dealing with depression, anxiety, temporomandibular joint dysfunction (TMJ), fibromyalgia, chronic fatigue syndrome, digestive issues, autism spectrum disorders, learning difficulties, and more. It can also enhance neck flexibility and range of motion. CST offers relief from constraints, stress, and tension while restoring cranial motion and nervous system function. CST's suitability depends on your medical history and specific conditions. It may not be recommended for certain medical situations; please consult with us for guidance. CST is a safe and effective holistic therapy, often used alongside other treatments. It aims to restore balance to the body's nervous system, enhancing overall health and well-being.
