What is Cranio-Sacral Therapy?
Cranio Sacral Therapy (CST) is a gentle, hands-on approach that releases tensions deep in the body to relieve pain and dysfunction and improve whole-body health and performance. It was pioneered and developed by Osteopathic Physician John E. Upledger after years of clinical testing and research at Michigan State University where is served as professor of biomechanics.
Using a soft touch which is generally no greater than 5 grams - CST releases restrictions in the soft tissues that surround the central nervous system. CST is increasingly used as preventive health measure for its ability to bolster resistance to disease, and it's effective for a wide range of medical problems associated with pain and dysfunction.
How does Cranio Sacral Therapy Work?
Few structures have as much influence over the body's ability to function properly as the brain and spinal cord that make up the central nervous system. And, the central nervous system is heavily influenced by the Cranio-Sacral system - the membranes and fluid that surround, protect and nourish the brain and spinal cord.
Everyday your body endures stresses and strains that it much work to compensate for. Unfortunately, these changes often cause body tissues to tighten and distort the Cranio-Sacral system. These distortions can be cause tension to form around the brain and spinal cord resulting in restrictions. This can create a barrier to the healthy performance of the central nervous system, and potentially every other system it interacts with.
Fortunately, such restrictions can be detected and corrected using simple methods of touch. With a light touch, the CST practitioner uses his/her hands to evaluate the Cranio-Sacral system by gently feeling various locations of the body to test for the ease of motion and rhythm of the cerebrospinal fluid pulsing around the brain and spinal cord. Soft-touch techniques are then used to release restrictions in any tissues influencing the cranio-sacral system.
By normalizing the environment around the brain and spinal cord and enhancing the body's ability to self-correct, Cranio-Sacral Therapy is able to alleviate a wide variety of dysfunctions from chronic pain and sports injuries to stroke and neurological impairment:
Migraines and Headaches
Chronic Neck and Back Pain
Stress and Tension-Related Disorders
Infant and Childhood Disorders
Brain and Spinal Cord Injuries
Central Nervous System Disorders
Post-Traumatic Stress Disorders
