Craniosacral Therapy (CST)


CST addresses your craniosacral system, which encompasses the soft tissues and fluid that surround, nourish and protect your entire brain and spinal cord-your Central Nervous System (CNS). The fluid, called cerebrospinal fluid, has its own distinct rhythm that can be palpated by the CST practitioner. We endure stress and strain on a daily basis- our body, and the protective tissues (fascia) that make up the craniosacral system, absorb these traumas both large and small, emotional and physical, in order to protect the rest of the body in the process. But our bodies and minds can only handle so much tension before the fascia begin to tighten and eventually affect & compromise the functioning of the brain and spinal cord (CNS). Dysfunction in the CNS then affects the performance of nearly every other system in our body. CST addresses, releases & integrates these tensions stored in our bodies through application of a gentle touch, starting with approximately the weight of a nickel. The CST practitioner starts the session with a hands on evaluation your internal environment, starting at your feet. Once restriction and dysfunction are assessed, as measured by restricted range of motion in tissues, quality of your craniosacral pulse & the clients feedback, the practitioner uses these light touch techniques to release located tensions & blockages. Release of these restrictions allows your own body to relax and do what it needs to self-correct. The CNS is then free to function at its optimal levels, affecting your body system as a whole. CST essentially encourages your body’s own natural ability to take better care of you. Because it’s so gentle, CST is appropriate for all ages ranging from newborns to the elderly. “.
