CranioSacral Therapy (CST)  focuses on improving performance of the central nervous system by freeing the circulation of cerebrospinal fluid. Produced by the brain’s ventricles, cerebrospinal fluid cushions both your brain and spinal cord and pulses throughout your body.

Using very light touching the CranioSacral Therapist relaxes restrictions to cerebrospinal fluid flow caused by tension in the fascia that surround it, particularly the dura mater which surrounds your spine from cranium to sacrum. These restrictions, which can also be caused by damage to muscles or by constriction of your diaphragm, result in pain, muscular tension and other symptoms.

CST alleviates pain and tension from stress. It is a particularly effective treatment for days-long migraines, TMJ issues, sinus problems, and insomnia. CST effectively helps with fibromyalgia, chronic fatigue syndrome, back pain, sciatica and other conditions.

CranioSacral Massage Therapy’s very light “holds” by the therapist, and, the possibility that it may be performed with the patient fully clothed, make it a good choice for anyone unable to receive traditional bodywork. It may be indicated for those recovering from surgery, children, the elderly, or those who are injured.
