How does CranioSacral Therapy Work?
Every day your body endures stresses and strains (emotional/physical) that it must work to compensate for in order to maintain homeostasis. Unfortunately, these stresses often cause body tissues to tighten and distort the craniosacral system (in the brain and spinal cord) which causes tension, pain and emotional imbalances especially during longer times of stress or sudden injury. This effects the central nervous system and potentially all other systems.
Fortunately, such restrictions are observed and corrected using of the light touch of CranioSacral Therapy. As a CST practitioner, I use my hands to evaluate the craniosacral system by feeling for the subtle rhythm of the cerebrospinal fluid (CSF) around the brain and spinal cord. Then I used gentle techniques to help release restrictions in the tissues influencing the craniosacral system. This allows the body’s CSF rhythm to normalize and enhances the body to self-correct.
CranioSacral Therapy helps alleviate many dysfunctions and offers deep relaxation to the recipient.
Here is just a sampling of what CST may help with:
Neck and back pain
Trauma or surgical recovery
Mood disorders like anxiety or depression
Migraines and headaches
Disturbed sleep cycles and insomnia
Stress and tension-related disorders
