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. We evaluate the pulse of this fluid and its movement through the body. The pulse is diminished or interfered with by tension and restrictions in the craniosacral system.
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. 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).
