What is CranioSacral Therapy?
CranioSacral Therapy (CST) is a gentle manual therapy approach that releases restrictions in the soft tissues that surround the nervous system to relieve dysfunction, and improve performance and wellness. It was developed by Osteopathic Physician John E. Upledger after years of clinical testing and research.
The CranioSacral system maintains the physiological environment in which the brain and nervous system develop and function. This system is responsible for the production, circulation and reabsorption of the cerebrospinal fluid. CranioSacral therapy releases restrictions in the fascial system and helps bring the body into a state of balance. Normalizing the environment around the brain and spinal cord enhances the body's natural healing processes and ability to self-correct.
CranioSacral Therapy is able to alleviate a wide variety of symptoms and dysfunction. Because it is so gentle, CranioSacral Therapy is effective for people of all ages, and for all kinds of problems or issues affecting the nervous system.
