What is Craniosacral Therapy?
Craniosacral Therapy (CST) is a fully clothed, hands-on, gentle, light-touch, non-invasive technique, developed by osteopathic physician, John E. Upledger. CST focuses on releasing tensions deep in the central nervous system so every other system in the body can relax and self-correct. Complementing the body’s natural healing process, it helps you naturally free yourself from pain, stress and discomfort. It can be safely used and effective for all ages from newborns to senior citizens.
What is the CranioSacral System?
Functionally, the CranioSacral Therapy System is intimately related to the central nervous system, the autonomic nervous system, the neuromusculoskeletal system and the endocrine system. It is comprised of the membranes that surround your head and spine. These membranes act as a small hydraulic pump that draws cerebrospinal fluid (a clear fluid) out of the blood, bathing the brain and spinal cord and then returns to the blood supply. This is the way this clear fluid is filtered and renewed. This clear cerebrospinal fluid is important because it supplies nutrients, carries away waste products and acts as a fluid protective covering for the brain and spinal cord. This system extends from the cranium (skull) to the sacrum (tailbone). The circulation of this fluid within the system creates a rhythmic motion that can be palpated throughout the entire body and is used for evaluation and treatment during a CST session.
