Cranial Sacral Therapy is a gentle hands-on approach that releases tensions deep within the body to help resolve trapped forces that underlie and govern patterns of disease and fragmentation in both body and mind. Using a soft touch, practitioners release restrictions in the craniosacral system, the membranes and fluid that surround, protect and nourish the brain and spinal cord.
Every day your body endures stresses and strains that it must work to compensate for. Unfortunately, these changes often cause body tissues to tighten and distort the craniosacral system. These distortions can then cause tension to form around the brain and spinal cord resulting in restrictions. This can create a barrier to the healthy performance of the central nervous system, and potentially every other system it interacts with.
The intention of treatment is to facilitate the body’s own self-healing and self-regulating capabilities to allow for deep healing from the inside out. CST is increasingly used as a preventive health measure for its ability to bolster resistance to disease, and it’s effective for a wide range of medical problems associated with pain and dysfunction.
