CranioSacral Therapy (CST) is a type of bodywork that can create dynamic improvements in your life. It helps to release tensions deep in the body to relieve pain and dysfunction and improve whole body health and performance.

Few body structures have more influence over your health and wellbeing than your central nervous system. And few body systems have more impact on your central nervous system than the craniosacral system – which consists of the bones, soft tissues and fluid that surround and nurture your brain and spinal cord.

Every day we endure stresses and strains that our body absorbs. But it can only handle so much tension before the tissues begin to tighten or change. Other experiences, from physical injuries to emotional trauma, can create or add to restrictions. These may radiate out from or into the craniosacral system and can compromise the function of the central nervous system and the performance of other areas of your body.

CranioSacral Therapy’s light touch techniques can release these tensions to allow the entire body to relax and self-correct. By freeing the central nervous system to perform at its best, CST may reduce pain and stress and enhance your health and wellbeing. Because it is so gentle, CST may be effective for all ages, from newborns to the elderly.

CranioSacral Therapy is very helpful for all kinds of conditions such as:

  • Stress and tension-related disorders
  • Musculoskeletal pain
  • Migraines and headaches
  • Sinusitis
  • Menstrual/menopausal problems
  • Chronic fatigue
  • TMJ dysfunction
  • Injuries, both physical and emotional

For babies and children, CST can help with colic, feeding difficulties, birth trauma, excessive crying, falls/injuries, learning difficulties and non-specific disorders.

CST can be useful as part of our preventative care to help keep us in optimal health.
