A complementary method of hands-on bodywork that works with the natural and unique rhythms of the different body systems to pinpoint and address problem sources. Craniosacral Therapy (CST) helps to alleviate the aches, pains and strains of life & improves coping mechanisms to allow for better management of stress.
What is the Craniosacral System?
The Craniosacral System involves the development and function of the membranes and the cerebral spinal fluid between the brain and the spinal cord. The system has a rhythm which can be detected by a trained therapist through a light touch. The rhythm travels throughout the body and sources of obstruction and/or stress can be targeted if the rhythm is disrupted.

What You Can Expect
Craniosacral Therapy is a gentle hands-on therapy that improves and develops the Craniosacral System. It involves the bones of the head, the spinal column, the sacrum, and the underlying structures. These gentle manipulation are intended to relieve pain and tension of the area being worked on. Special techniques are used to release restriction of the soft tissues that surround the central nervous system and release obstruction in these areas to restore normal function.
