“CranioSacral Therapy (CST) is a gentle approach that can dramatically improve your life. It can releases tension deep in your body to reduce pain, minimize dysfunction, decrease stress and improve your whole-body health and performance.
The central nervous system has a large influence over your health, and the craniosacral system (the soft tissues and fluid that protect your brain and spinal cord.) has a huge impact on your central nervous system.
Every day you encounter stress and strains and your body absorbs it all in one form or another. But your body can only handle so much before the tissues begin to tighten and potentially affect the brain and spinal cord.
CranioSacral Therapy aims to release those tensions to allow your body to relax and settle back into balance. Using a gentle touch – the therapist follows the subtle rhythm of the craniosacral system as it radiates outward and throughout the body. Looking for imbalances and focusing on those areas.
How is a CST session different than a Swedish massage?
you can stay clothed, wearing loose fitting, comfortable clothing
there is no oil or lotion used
the approach is a light-touch at various stations of the body, there are no massage strokes of the soft tissue
CranioSacral Therapy is safe and effective for all ages and levels of health.
