Cranio-Sacral Therapy is a gentle hands-on method of evaluating and enhancing the functioning of the craniosacral system. An imbalance or dysfunction in this system can cause sensory, motor and/or neurological disabilities or chronic pain. CST releases restrictions in this system to improve its function.
The Cranio Sacral system consists of the membranes of the central nervous system, their bony attachments to the cranial bones and the sacrum, and the cerebrospinal fluid which rhythmically moves within the Cranio Sacral system. Practitioners of Cranio Sacral Therapy use this rhythmic movement to identify restrictions both within the system and throughout the body’s connective tissue.
What can it treat?
Cranio Sacral works on many different levels and influences different structures within the body, ie. musculo-skeletal, nervous, cardiovascular, immune systems, the organs, connective tissue and fluids and energy systems within the body. Cranio Sacral treats the whole person and is suitable for all ages from newborn babies to the elderly.
