CRANIOSACRAL

CST is a gentle, hands-on method of evaluating and enhancing the functioning of a physiological body system called the craniosacral system - comprised of the membranes and cerebrospinal fluid that surround and protect the brain and spinal cord.

Using a soft touch generally no greater than 5 grams, or about the weight of a nickel, the practitioner releases restrictions in the craniosacral system to improve the functioning of the central nervous system.

This is accomplised by seeking to restore the natural position of the bones, thus decreasing stress from chronic injuries as well as providing relief from migraine headaches, neck and back pain, temporomandibular joint disorder (the inflammation of the joint that connects the lower jaw to the skull) and more.

In a typical 60 to 90 minute session, the client lies quietly, fully clothed, while the practitioner makes light contact at selected points around the head, torso, knees, and feet.

 

This light contact consists of gentle finger pressure, with no bone manipulation or forceful thrusts such as those used in chiropractic work, bone-setting, or osteopathy.

The practitioner notes what he or she perceives at selected points on the body and in the craniosacral system (the membranes and cerebrospinal fluid that surround and protect the brain and spinal cord), as well as the client's attitude and intentions.

 

The goal of craniosacral therapy is to help get rid of restrictions in this system to improve the functioning of the central nervous system.
