CranioSacral Therapy is a gentle, hands-on technique to release tensions within the body to relieve pain and enhance the overall function of the central nervous system. Due to its soft nature, CST can be effective for all ages, from newborns to elderly, in improving whole body health, performance, and overall well-being!
Using the weight of about a nickel, a CranioSacral Therapist touches various parts of the body to monitor the rhythm of the craniosacral system (soft tissues and fluid that protects your brain and spinal cord), and locate any areas of weak fluid flow or tissue motion and signs of dysfunction. Then, the therapist works to release any problem areas or restrictions found, ultimately allowing the fluid to flow more freely and the central nervous system to perform at optimal level.
CranioSacral Therapy sessions can last up to an hour with the client lying fully clothed on a comfortable, padded table. A typical bodily response is deep relaxation, clarity, feelings of warmth, relief, or a gentle pulsing in the areas the therapist is working on. An emotional release experience is not uncommon, and is in fact a huge benefit to this work. When the body is comfortable, and the client is in a deepened state of relaxation, a softening and loosening of tissue restrictions may also initiate the release of any emotion stored within said tissue or area of the body.
