WHAT IS CRANIOSACRAL THERAPY (CST)?
Craniosacral Therapy (CST) is a gentle hands-on treatment that may provide relief from a variety of symptoms including headaches, neck pain, spine & back pain among many others.
CST uses a light touch to examine membranes & movement of fluids in & around the central nervous system. Relieving tension in the central nervous system promotes a feeling of well-being by eliminating pain & boosting health & immunity.
The focus of CST is a gentle placement of hands to assist release of the body's connective tissue, or "fascia". Fascia (Latin word for "band") is a covering found throughout the body including organs, glands, nerves, muscles, blood vessels, brain & spinal cord. This covering forms a body-wide connective network. CST is based on the idea that the body is interrelated at all levels.
CST is thought to improve efficiency of biological processes through boosting inherent self regulation, self correction & self-healing. The therapy can be used successfully with children & adults.
