Craniosacral Therapy is becoming a treatment of choice in areas of pain, rehabilitation and neurology. CST is a gentle, non-invasive, hands-on technique, developed by the osteopathic physician, William G. Sutherlan nearly a century ago and revived in the 1970’s by John Upledger.
Craniosacral Theory and Practice
CST theory and practice are based on perceiving the continuous subtle movements of the cranial bones, which are the result of the rhythm of the cerebrospinal fluid (CSF) fluctuations within the spinal cord and brain environment. This rhythm is often referred to as the “Primary Respiratory System” as its subtle movement extends outward to the entire body in response to the CSF pressure changes.
By using the hands as fine discriminating tools, a Craniosacral therapist is able to detect disturbances in the Craniosacral rhythm and/or subtle pulls in the patient’s fascial network which help in the identification of areas of restriction in the body. The practitioner then gently works with the body’s fascia, spine, and/or the cranial bones and sutures to release restrictions and reignite the body’s own natural movement towards balance and functional ease.Purchase a Healing Session
