CranioSacral Therapy is a very gentle hands-on healing method. It works to release deep tension and trauma held in the body, with an intention to unlock, unwind and heal past and present trauma, pain and dysfunction. CST is a whole body balancing treatment, and is very relaxing and restorative. It allows the body and brain to reset and heal.
The craniosacral system encompasses the soft tissues and fluids that surround the brain and spinal cord. Stress, trauma and normal life wear-and-tear can be absorbed by the CST system, and can therefore affect nervous system functioning. CST treatment releases restriction, by encouraging the body to resolve built-up trauma and tension.

Migraines and Headaches

A CranioSacral Session…
A CST session is an hour or more in length, is done is a quiet and relaxed setting, and is performed through the clothing (comfortable and light clothing recommended), on a massage table.
The session begins with an assessment of the overall rhythm and quality of the CST system, to determine where restrictions are focused.
Once issues are identified, certain gentle manual techniques are performed, to release restriction, and balance out the craniosacral system as a whole.
A deep state of relaxation is often achieved, with a sense of better “flow” throughout the body at the termination of treatment.
