Why is CranioSacral Therapy so important?
CranioSacral Therapy (CST) is a light-touch approach that can create dramatic improvements in your life. It releases tensions deep in the body to relieve pain and dysfunction and improve whole-body health and performance.
Every day you endure stresses and strains and your body absorbs them. But your body can only handle so much tension before the tissues begin to tighten and potentially affect the brain and spinal cord.
How can it help you?
Releases those tensions to allow the entire body to relax and self-correct.
Using a gentle touch – starting with about the weight of a nickel – practitioners evaluate your internal environment. Then they use distinctive light-touch techniques to release any restrictions they find.
Naturally eliminates pain and stress, strengthens your resistance to disease, and enhances your health and well-being.
Can be effective for all ages. From newborns to elders.
What Can I Expect From a Session?
A typical CranioSacral Therapy session takes place in a quiet, private setting. You remain fully clothed as you relax on a massage table.
Your therapist begins by gently touching carious parts of your body to monitor the rhythm of the fluid that is flowing around your central nervous system.
Be carefully listening with the hands to locate areas of weak fluid flow or tissue motion, your practitioner can trace those areas of weakness through the body to the original source of dysfunction.
Delicate manual techniques are then used to release those problem areas and improve the form and function of your central nervous system.
A CranioSacral Therapy session can last up to an hour or more. It can be used alone or integrated with other therapies to create powerful effects.
The sessions are generally deeply relaxing, creating feelings or warmth or gentle pulsing in the areas the therapist is working on.
