Craniosacral Therapy

CranioSacral Therapy (CST) is a light-touch approach developed by osteopathic physician John E. Upledger that can create dramatic results. It releases tension deep in the body to relieve pain and dysfunction and improve whole-body health and performance.

The craniosacral system is the soft tissues and fluid that protect your brain and spinal cord. As your body endures stress, strains, and injuries, the tissues can start to tighten and affect the function of the central nervous system and every system in your body that it controls.

CST releases those tensions, which allows the body to relax and self-correct. The practitioner uses a very gentle touch, only the weight of a nickel, to evaluate strain patterns and then release any restrictions they find. Because CST is so gentle, it is effective for all ages, from newborns to elders. 

What can I expect from a session?

  • You remain fully clothed as you relax on a comfortable, padded table.
  • Your therapist begins by gently touching various parts of your head and body to monitor the rhythm of the fluid flowing through your central nervous system.
  • By carefully listening with the hands to locate areas of weak fluid flow or tissue motion, your practitioner can trace those areas of weakness through the body to the source of the dysfunction.
  • Delicate manual techniques are then used to release those problem areas and improve the form and function of your central nervous system.
  • A craniosacral session can last up to an hour or more. It can be used alone or integrated with other therapies to facilitate powerful changes.
  • What you experience from your session is highly individual. The sessions are generally deeply relaxing, creating feelings of warmth or gentle pulsing in the areas the therapist is working on.
