What is Craniosacral Therapy (CST)?
Craniosacral Therapy (CST) defines the physiology and anatomy of the craniosacral system, its function in health and its relationship to diseases process. CST is a non-invasive and light touch approach. It releases tensions deep in the body to relieve pain and dysfunction and improve overall body health and performance.
Using a gentle touch, starting at the weight of a nickel, practitioners manipulate the bones in the skull, spine, pelvis, and other various parts of the body to normalize the flow of cerebrospinal fluid in the central nervous system. This removes the blockage from the normal flow, which enhances the body’s ability to heal.
A CST session can last up to an hour or more and can be used alone or integrated with other therapies to facilitate the recovery.
