Craniosacral Therapy

What is CranioSacral Therapy?
CranioSacral Therapy (CST) is a light-touch approach that releases tensions and restrictions deep in the body to relieve pain and dysfunction to improve your whole-body health and performance.

What are the benefits of CranioSacral Therapy?
Every day we endure stresses and strains that our body absorbs. It can only handle
so much at a time before it starts to tighten up and potentially affect our brain and spinal cord. CranioSacral Therapy can release the tension and restrictions that have developed and help the body to relax, self-correct and heal it’s self naturally.

According to the Upledger Institute, it is an effective treatment for a multitude of illnesses and dysfunction including:

  • Migraines and headaches
  • Chronic pain
  • Chronic fatigue
  • Chronic neck and back pain
  • Insomnia
  • Stress
  • Depression and anxiety
  • Stress and tension-related disorders
  • Fibromyalgia
  • TMJ Syndrome
  • Scoliosis
  • Sinus and ear imbalances
  • Central nervous system disorders
  • Learning disabilities
  • Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD)
  • Post-surgical dysfunction
  • Orthopedic problems
  • Emotional difficulties
  • Sciatica
  • Bell's Palsy
  • Eye difficulties
  • General wellness

What can I expect from a session of CranioSacral Therapy?
In the therapy session you remain fully clothed, relaxing on a comfortable, padded table in a private room. The therapist begins with a gentle touch, no more than the weight of a nickel on specific areas. Monitoring the rhythm of the fluid that is flowing around your central nervous system, helping to release any problem areas and improve the form and function of this system.

A session can last up to an hour or more and can be done on its own or in conjunction with other therapies for more powerful effects. CranioSacral Therapy is gentle and effective enough for all ages.

CranioSacral Therapy is taught by the Upledger Institute.
