CST is a complete gentle, hands-on approach that releases tensions deep in the tissues of the body to relieve pain and dysfunction and improve whole-body health and performance. Using a soft touch which is generally no greater than 5 grams – about the weight of a nickel – practitioners release restrictions in the soft tissues that surround the central nervous system. involves working with the core of the body, (the cranium, the spine, the spinal fluids, the sacrum, etc). Why is it called "Cranio-sacral"? In the philosophy of CST (Craniosacral Therapy) the health or lack of, will be expressed in this area of the body (nervous system, cranium, vertebral spine, sacrum). The therapist can make adjustments through subtle palpations and trained energetic movements, creating a balance. This system, once working efficiently as a unit, helps the body restore health on it’s own. For more information and when it can be helpful, please see my "treatments" area on the website.
Many clients ask me to define Craniosacral Therapy. This is one of the best explanations that I have seen in a video and I feel it gives a clear idea of how it works..please see the youtube link below..
