CranioSacral Therapy

CranioSacral therapy (CST) is a gentle, hands-on method of evaluating and enhancing the craniosacral system. The craniosacral system consists of the membranes and fluid that surround and protect the brain and spinal cord. Using a light, soft touch, CranioSacral practitioners release restrictions in the craniosacral system to improve the function of the central nervous system. By complementing the body’s natural healing processes, CST serves as a preventive health measure to address multiple issues including:
  • headaches
  • chronic neck and back pain
  • colic
  • infant feeding difficulties
  • motor-coordination impairments
  • learning disabilities
  • chronic fatigue
  • emotional difficulties
  • stress and tension-related problems
  • orthopedic problems
  • autism
  • concussion and traumatic brain injuries
  • spinal cord injuries
  • scoliosis
  • fibromyalgia and other connective tissue disorders
  • temporomandibular joint dysfunction (TMJD)
