Craniosacral Therapy

Enhancing the function of the craniosacral system

Craniosacral therapy (CST) is a gentle hands-on method of evaluating and enhancing the function of a physiological body system called the craniosacral system - comprised of the bones of the head, spine and sacrum as well as the membranes and cerebrospinal fluids that surround and protect the brain and spinal cord.

A soft touch (about the weight of a nickel) is used to release restrictions in this system to improve functioning of the central nervous system.

    

CST complements the body's natural healing processes and is effective for a wide range of medical problems associated with pain and dysfunction, including:

  •  Chronic neck and back pain
  •  Autism, colic, infantile disorders
  •  Traumitic brain and spinal cord injuries
  •  Whiplash
  •  Headaches - tension and migraines
  •  TMJ dysfunction ------ to name a few.


For a more in-depth understanding of CST, please view the following short video where Michael Morgan from the Upledger Institute explains more about it and demonstrates it on a client - VIEW CLIP.

CST is often included as part of your therapy session, usually at the end - however it is very effective as a therapy on its own.
