CranioSacral Therapy

CranioSacral Therapy (CST) is an exceptionally safe and gentle form of bodywork using a very light touch to encourage your body and central nervous system to balance and heal itself. The craniosacral system is at the core of your central nervous system. It includes cerebrospinal fluid and tissue which surround your brain, spinal cord and sacrum (tailbone). This fluid moves and is used to protect, nourish and remove waste from your brain and spinal cord.

The CranioSacral Therapist is trained to tune into your craniosacral rhythm to feel obstructions and restrictions in your body which affect the quality and symmetry of the craniosacral rhythm. Corrections can then be made by gentle traction, holding and encouraging tissues to release tension, thus allowing the body to correct itself. Other bodywork modalities may also be incorporated to help facilitate a release.
