Craniosacral Therapy is a super gentle, light-touch approach that releases tensions in the central nervous system so that every other system in your body can relax and self-correct.
Craniosacral Therapy is a gentle, hands-on method of evaluating and enhancing the functioning of a physiological body system called the craniosacral system – comprised of the membranes and cerebrospinal fluid that surround and protect the brain and spinal cord.
Using a soft touch generally no greater than 5 grams, or about the weight of a nickel, practitioners release restrictions in the craniosacral system to improve the functioning of the central nervous system.
Cranioscaral Therapy improves your body’s ability to take better care of you.
One of the reasons I love CST is because it works efficiently with your body’s self-healing design, rather than trying to force changes on the tissues.
By complementing the body’s natural healing processes, CST is increasingly used as a preventive health measure for its ability to bolster resistance to disease, and is effective for a wide range of medical problems associated with pain and dysfunction, including:
– Migraines and Headaches
– Chronic Neck and Back Pain
– Stress and Tension-Related Disorders
– Motor-Coordination Impairments
– Infant and Childhood Disorders
– Brain and Spinal Cord Injuries
– Chronic Fatigue
– TMJ Syndrome
– Central Nervous System Disorders
– Learning Disabilities
– ADD/ ADHD
– Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder
– Orthopedic Problems
– And Many Other Conditions
What to Expect from a Craniosacral Therapy Session
A typical Craniosacral Therapy session takes place in a quiet, private setting. You remain fully clothed as you relax on a comfortable, padded table.
I will begin by gently touching various parts of your body to monitor the rhythm of the fluid that is flowing around your central nervous system.
By carefully listening with my hands to locate areas of weak fluid flow or tissue motion, I can trace those areas of weakness through the body to the original source of dysfunction.
Delicate manual techniques are then used to release those problem areas and improve the form and function of your nervous system.
A typical CranioSacral Therapy session will last for about an hour. It can be used alone or integrated with other therapies to create powerful effects.
What you experience from your own session is highly individual. The sessions are generally deeply relaxing, creating feelings of warmth or gentle pulsing in the areas that I am working on. Most clients come off of the table rested and refreshed, and the changes that are made during the treatment continue to strengthen in the following days.
