What is Craniosacral Therapy?
Craniosacral therapy (CST), is a gentle, non-invasive form of bodywork that addresses the bones of the head, spinal column and sacrum as well as the membrane and cerebrospinal fluid that surround surround and protect them. The goal of CST is to release compression in those areas which alleviated pain and stress as well as correcting underlying dysfunction. This also helps functioning of the central nervous system, which is always affected with chronic pain patterns.
CST helps to clear restrictions in the fascial tissues of the body. Fascia is our most abundant tissue with goes head to toe without interruption. Fascia envelops every bone, muscle, organ all the way down to individual cells. The gentle releasing of chronic tensions within the body can affect both physical and emotional well-being. This makes CST useful both as a primary treatment or along with other manual therapy treatments.
