What is CranioSacral Therapy?
CranioSacral Therapy is an educated, specific, hands-on therapy that can create significant improvements in your life.
Our CranioSacral System is comprised of the tissues and cerebrospinal fluid that support and protect the brain and spinal cord. As a result of this connection, the CranioSacral system has a direct impact on the health and well-being of our central nervous system.
The CranioSacral System like other body systems, has its own motion based upon the movement of the protective cerebrospinal fluid. During a CST session, I evaluate with gentle hands-on techniques, determine the tension patterns within the system, and facilitate the release of the biological fabric that holds the restriction.
The result is reduced pain and stress, enhanced function, motion, and improved health and well-being.
Life experiences, stresses, and strains are processed through our bodies; When overwhelming, these experiences are held in the system. Our bodies work around these held experiences until the load becomes too great and we develop symptoms. CST helps your body to release the held tensions, to allow for the entire body to release and self-correct.
