How does it work?
Treatment involves a very gentle touch of the practitioners hands, both for diagnosis and for treatment.
Through this light touch the practitioner is able to pick up subtle patterns of motion within the body – rhythms, pulls, pulsations – emanating from deep within the core structures of the body.
By responding appropriately to these patterns – the Cranio-Sacral Therapist can enable and facilitate the release of the restrictions at a profound regulatory level which in turn enables the release of holding patterns throughout the body.
Treatment is usually experienced as a very profound relaxation which may pervade the whole person, physically, mentally and emotionally, often accompanied by a feeling of lightness and ease.
Cranio-Sacral Therapy is primarily concerned with creating and maintaining a healthy, balanced state on all levels. This underlying state of well-being enables the body’s own healing mechanisms to operate at optimum level, it influences many different structures within the body, such as the musculo-skeletal system, the nervous system, the cardiovascular-vascular system, the immune system, the organs, the connective tissues, the fluids and the energy systems of the body.
The following are just a few examples of the many conditions that can benefit from Cranio-Sacral treatment:
Benefits of CranioSacral Therapy
CST has been shown to alleviate a wide range of conditions, including traumatic brain and spinal cord injuries, migraine headaches, chronic fatigue, motor-coordination impairments, chronic neck and back pain, scoliosis, central nervous system disorders, temporomandibular joint dysfunction (TMJ), stress and tension-related problems, and orthopedic problems. While the focus of CST is to uncover the source of the problem, symptom relief also is achieved. The length of time and number of sessions needed is extremely variable and depends, among other factors, on the complex layers of injury and trauma that may mask the original cause of the problem as well as the body’s defense mechanisms. Due to its gentleness and effectiveness, many people include CST as a component in their personal wellness programs. They report having more energy, sleeping better and being sick less often
