CRANIOSACRAL THERAPY (CST)

What is craniosacral therapy?

Cranial Sacral Therapy(CST) also referred to as craniosacral therapy is a gentle treatment used to regulate spinal fluid movement, realign bones in the skull and spine as well as relax fascia and connective tissue throughout the body. The human head has several bones joined together by joints called synarthrodial joints.  Due to injury, inflammation, motor vehicle accidents or trauma, one or more of these joints may be shifted causing issues in another area of your body. Fascia is a band or sheet of connective tissue found beneath the skin that attaches, stabilizes, encloses and separates muscles and other internal organs. It gives the body strength, support and flexibility.  Injuries often travel via the fascia to other areas in the body. CST can help alleviate the symptoms caused by misalignment and can also improve the regulation and flow of spinal fluid which helps promote your body’s natural healing capabilities.

What to expect from cranial sacral therapy?
