Cranio/Sacral Therapy (CST) is a light-touch approach that can create dramatic improvements in your overall being. It releases tensions deep within the body to relieve pain and dysfunction in an effort to improve whole-body health and performance.
There are few body structures that have more influence over your health and well-being than your central nervous system. And few body systems that have more impact on your central nervous system than the craniosacral system – the soft tissues and fluid that protect your brain and spinal cord.
Your body is made to endure and absorb stresses and strains. However, your body can only handle so much tension before the tissues begin to tighten and potentially affect the brain and spinal cord. Unfortunately, this can compromise the function of the central nervous system and nearly every other system in your body.
CranioSacral Therapy releases those tensions to allow the entire body to relax and self-correct. Using a gentle touch, such as the weight of a nickel, practitioners evaluate your internal environment. Then they use distinctive light touch techniques to release any restrictions they find.
When the central nervous system is freed to perform at its best, CST naturally eliminates pain and stress. It will strengthen your resistance to disease and enhance your health and well-being.
Because it is so gentle, CST can be effective for all ages.
