What is CranioSacral Therapy?

CranioSacral System
The tissue of the CranioSacral System is high-lighted in blue.

CranioSacral Therapy, also referred to as CST, is a soft touch approach to releasing deep tension within the body. It can address many issues in the body because it helps to improve the functioning of the central nervous system. When giving a treatment, the therapist uses extended holds and gentle tractioning to releases the tension in the tissue around the central nervous system. When this tissue is free of restriction it allows for the central nervous system function in a better way–thus making you feel better!

 


How does CranioSacral Therapy Help?

Nerve Map
The central nervous system influences our entire body.

Due to traumas, surgeries, or even just repetitive motions, the tissue that surrounds the central nervous system can become restricted. In addition, this restriction influences the functioning of the central nervous system and how the nerves “fire.” This restriction influences the other systems of the body creating symptoms that can range from muscle spasms, to headaches, to to digestive issues and more. Therefore, if a condition is not addressed through regular massage or other therapies, CranioSacral Therapy is advised–by releasing tension in the tissue around the central nervous system, the flow of the fluid around the spine (cerebral spinal fluid) and the tissue itself supports the correct functioning of the central nervous system. Since the central nervous system is such a foundational part of our bodies functioning, CST has a beneficial effect on a wide array of conditions (as listed in the final section).


What conditions does CST address?

  • Concussion and Traumatic Brain Injury
  • Migraines and Headaches
  • Chronic Neck and Back Pain
  • Autism
  • Stress and Tension-Related Disorders
  • Motor-Coordination Impairments
  • Infant and Childhood Disorders
  • Brain and Spinal Cord Injuries
  • Chronic Fatigue
  • Fibromyalgia
  • TMJ Syndrome
  • Scoliosis
  • Central Nervous System Disorders
  • Learning Disabilities
  • ADD/ADHD
  • Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder
  • Orthopedic Problems
  • And Many Other Conditions

Simple Self Healing Energy Technique

Is Self Healing Possible?

It’s not uncommon to experience minor aches and pains throughout the day. Also, when we have injuries from life events we can experience discomfort as we heal. It’s not always possible to get in to see your massage therapist. Whether the issue is time or money, it’s always good to have a back up plan. I recommend to my clients, using an energy that is freely available to them. Self healing is possible.

In the following video, I share a simple energy technique. I teach thisto clients who have injuries that can use some TLC. It’s also a great technique for minor aches and pains. Give it a try and see for yourself!
