Craniosacral Therapy (CST)
Craniosacral Therapy (CST) is a gentle, hands-on method of evaluating and enhancing the functioning of the physiological body and the craniosacral system.
The craniosacral system consists of the central nervous system, cerebrospinal fluid, protective membranes, and the bones of the cranium (head), spine, and sacrum (tail bone). Over time, energy blocks and restrictions, caused by stress, injury, or trauma, affect movement, performance, behavior, and attitude, creating a place of disease. Even distal limb injuries can be detected in the cranial rhythm.
Using a soft touch, practitioners release restrictions in the craniosacral system. Typically the localized site of pain or discomfort is the place for treatment to begin, but it can lead to other areas of restriction or torsions that can also interrupt the CranioSacral Rhythm and can give the therapist a bigger picture of the injury .By encouraging the body’s natural healing processes, CST is not only used for injury and trauma but is increasingly used as a preventive health measure for its ability to increase resistance to disease and injury by rebalancing the body’s qi.
CST is effective for a wide range of medical problems associated with pain and dysfunction of the central nervous system. Craniosacral Therapy (CST) is offered for both my human and animals patients.
