Craniosacral Therapy has been effective in naturally eliminating pain and stress, by freeing the central nervous system to perform at its best. The practitioner uses a light-touch approach to monitor the craniosacral rhythm and detect potential restrictions in the cranium (bones of the skull), as well as the spine, sacrum, coccyx and pelvis.
The Craniosacral system consists of membranes and cerebrospinal fluid that surrounds and protects the brain and spinal cord. Releasing restriction in these key areas helps boost the health of the central nervous system. The nervous system coordinates and influences every mental and physical function of the body and is essential in maintaining optimum health. Every system of the body can be positively affected.
CST has been successfully used to treat headaches, neck and back pain, TMJ,colic, motor coordination difficulties, eye problems, central nervous system disorders, and many more. Mouth work can be helpful, pre and post dental work, to enhance healing and relieve tension created in the joints. Craniosacral therapy has helped children with learning disabilities and anxiety when problems may be a result of a difficult childbirth or other causes of restrictions in the cranium.
Craniosacral therapy is a way of tapping into and supporting the body’s own inner wisdom and allowing the body to do what it was born to do, heal dysfunction and improve whole-body health and performance.
