Cranial-Sacral Therapy

Lymphatic Facial massage

Craniosacral Therapy (CST) is a gentle yet profound hands-on whole body therapy that addresses connective tissue throughout the body. It is designed to relieve physical and energetic restrictions and awaken the body to its own innate healing processes. It is an effective way to address both recent and decades-old trauma to any place in the body, with special attention to the brain and spinal cord. Results of this work tend to be long lasting.

A central theme in many Craniosacral Therapy sessions is the enhancement of the flow of cerebral spinal fluid through the brain and spinal cord, thus nourishing and cleansing the central nervous system. Cranial Rhythmic Impulse (CRI) or Craniosacral Rhythm (CSR) is a rhythm that pulses through the craniosacral system, just as the heart has its beat and the lungs have their breath. By listening to the client’s CRI and gently palpating the body, especially the bones of the skull, a therapist helps relieve areas of restriction and free the fluid to move into areas that were previously inhibited.

A session is very calming and particularly useful for treating birth trauma (for both mother and infant), traumas from accidents, migraine cluster headaches, dizziness, sinus problems, and brain and spinal cord injuries. Additional benefits can include improved eyesight, hearing, and sense of taste and smell, not to mention the goal of diminishing pain and improving energy, function, and a sense of well-being. Craniosacral Therapy is also one of the few forms of treatment for dental pain and discomfort not resolved through dentistry, particularly TMJ disorder (dysfunction of the jaw joint).

Practitioners of CST include massage therapists, physical therapists, chiropractors, and even some medical doctors and dentists. They are trained in methods of constantly assessing and reassessing subtle information from the client/patient’s body, energy system, and emotional affect, and responding to current issues in the moment gently, appropriately, and effectively.
