CranioSacral Therapy


What Is CranioSacral Therapy?
CranioSacral Therapy (CST) is a gentle, hands-on, whole-body method of releasing restrictions around the brain and spinal cord to enhance central nervous system performance and allow the body to self correct. It was developed by osteopathic physician John E. Upledger. 

CranioSacral Therapy strengthens the body’s natural healing processes to bolster resistance to disease and improve overall health. It has also proven effective in aiding individuals with a wide range of medical challenges associated with pain and dysfunction including:

• Migraines • Neck and Back Pain • Fibromyalgia • Chronic Fatigue • TMJ • Allergies • Motor-Coordination Impairments • Autism • Central Nervous System Disorders • Colic • Scoliosis • Learning Disabilities • Brain and Spinal Cord Injuries • Emotional Difficulties • Stress-Related Problems • Libido/ED Neurovascular and Immune Disorders • Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder • Tongue-tie • Post-Surgical Dysfunction...

and many more health issues due to its gentle nature and positive effect on so many body functions, CranioSacral Therapy is practiced by a variety of healthcare professionals, from physicians to massage therapists. What Can I Expect From A CranioSacral Therapy Session? A typical CranioSacral Therapy
session lasts from 45 minutes to an hour, and takes place in a quiet, private setting. As a client you remain fully clothed as you recline on a massage or treatment table. The practitioner will stand or sit positioned at various points of your head, torso or feet.

At times your practitioner may also support your limbs and spine while helping your body release accumulated tension. What you experience during a CST session is highly individual. Some people say they feel deeply relaxed, while others describe feeling unwinding sensations as the body releases tension. You may even recall circumstances surrounding a past trauma or injury that caused your body stress. While it doesn’t occur in every session, this aspect of the process – called SomatoEmotional Releaseฎ – is perfectly normal, and helps the body reverse dysfunction and restore optimal levels of mobility. Because each individual response to CST is unique, the number of sessions needed to resolve any particular condition varies widely. While one session may give you the relief you need, your situation may require more therapy before it’s completely alleviated.  More
