Cranio Sacral Therapy (CST) is a very gentle, hands on approach which relieves pain and dysfunction without medical intervention. The practitioner will apply a very light touches to a patient’s skull, face, spine and pelvis which regulates the flow of cerebrospinal fluid. It allows for the body to heal from within and improve whole-body health and performance.
Like the pulse of the cardiovascular system, the craniosacral system has a rhythm that can be felt throughout the body. Using a touch generally no heavier than the weight of a five cent coin, skilled practitioners can monitor this rhythm at key body points to pinpoint the source of an obstruction or stress. Once a source has been determined, they can assist the natural movement of the fluid and related soft tissue to help the body self-correct. This simple action is often all it takes to remove a restriction.
