CranioSacral Therapy (CST)

CST is a gentle, light touch manual therapy with its roots in osteopathy. The craniosacral therapist gently mobilizes and releases the craniosacral system, which includes the soft tissue of the head (cranium), the spine down to its tail end (the sacral area), the pelvis, and myofascial diaphragms in between. If there is an imbalance or restriction in the system, it could cause sensory, motor or neurological disabilities. These techniques work to balance the environment in which the brain and spinal cord reside. CST works to re-teach the body to relax on a deeper level, de-programming old body habits and patterns and disengaging persistent myofascial stress patterns.

CST is a whole body approach addressing the origins of pain and dysfunction and serves as a great adjunct to conventional therapy treatments. CST can be effective in treating the following:

  • Migraines and headaches
  • Chronic neck and back pain
  • Stress and tension-related disorders
  • Motor-coordination impairments
  • Infant and childhood disorders
  • Brain and spinal cord injuries
  • Chronic fatigue
  • Fibromyalgia
  • TMJ syndrome
  • Scoliosis
  • Central nervous system disorders
  • Post-traumatic stress disorder
  • Autism
  • Orthopedic programs
