Craniosacral therapy (CST) is a holistic energetic treatment that balances the body's natural healing system. A craniosacral therapist can relieve pain, tension, and emotional strain during a relaxing session. Craniosacral therapy releases restrictions caused by long-term, acute or everyday stresses on the body and mind.
Relaxing craniosacral hold for relieving pain and tension.
There is an innate rhythm in every body that corresponds to the creation and resorption of cerebrospinal fluid in the central nervous system. Disruptions or restrictions in any part of the body can impact the nervous system and hinder optimal health. A craniosacral therapist is trained to recognize and release these restrictions, resolving physical discomforts and balancing emotions.
CST is done in a calm atmosphere, using only the lightest touch over clothes. An adult or child generally lies facing up on a table, while a baby can be held or nursed by a parent, or cradled on the table by the practitioner.
Craniosacral therapy can relieve pain, including but not limited to: TMJ, migraines/headaches, joint pain, neuralgia, injuries and chronic discomfort. CST also offers support in injury/concussion recovery and emotional/nervous system balancing. In babies, CST helps with colic, feeding and digestive problems, and other physical concerns. Mood, behavioral and physical issues children and teenagers can experience profound results with craniosacral therapy for mood, behavioral, and physical issues.
