Craniosacral therapy (CST) is a gentle, hands-on massaging technique. It uses a light touch to release tension around your body’s connective tissue network called the fascia. CST promotes pain relief from headaches, neck pain and the side effects of cancer treatment.
Using a soft touch generally no greater than 5 grams, or about the weight of a nickel, practitioners release restrictions in the craniosacral system, which has been shown to improve the functioning of the central nervous system, as well as many other systems of the body, such as digestive, musculoskeletal, respiratory, circulatory, and more. CST has also been shown to help with the physical components related to such somatic conditions as Post Traumatic Stress, depression and anxiety.
By facilitating the body's natural and innate healing processes, CST is increasingly used as a preventive health measure for its ability to bolster resistance to disease, and has been shown to be beneficial for people seeking help with a wide range of healthcare challenges and symptoms including:
- Migraines, headaches
- Chronic Pain
- Motor-Coordination Impairments
- Central Nervous System Disorders
- Orthopedic Problems
- Traumatic Brain Injuries and Concussions
- Spinal Cord Injuries
- Conception, Pregnancy, Birth
- ADD, ADHD
- Autism, Sensory Processing
- Chronic Fatigue
- Emotional Difficulties, Depression
- Stress and Tension Related Problems
- Fibromyalgia and other Connective Tissue Disorders
- TMJ Syndrome
- Immune Disorders
- Sleep Challenges
A craniosacral therapy session is similar to massage therapy, except you stay fully clothed. The treatment session begins with a consultation where you'll be asked questions about your health history, concerns about your health and the goals of the session.
During your session, you’ll lie on a massage table. It’s normal to feel a sense of deep relaxation during craniosacral therapy. Sessions are about an hour long.
