Specialized manual therapy, for getting to the deep pain and dysfunction of trauma, injury, and structural mal-adaptation.
Craniosacral Therapy (CST) is a gentle, hands-on method of enhancing the functioning of the body system called the craniosacral system - comprised of the tissue around the cranium, spine, pelvis, and the cerebrospinal fluid. The cerebrospinal fluid surrounds, nourishes, and protects the brain and spinal cord. Evaluation of the rhythm of this fluid and its movement through the body is assessed. The rhythm is diminished or interrupted by tension and restrictions in the body.
Using a light touch, practitioners release restrictions in the craniosacral system and soft tissues of the body to improve the functioning of all the systems of the body, including the central nervous system. Ultimately, CST releases tension that allows the body to relax and self-correct.
Craniosacral Therapy is a type of bodywork therapy that is done while being fully clothed. It may include assisted range of motion exercises, assisted stretching, massage techniques modified for clothing, acupressure (applying pressure to specific points on the body), and reflexology (hand and foot massage).
