What are the Uses of Craniosacral Therapy?

A powerful but gentle way of healing CST or Craniosacral Therapy works on your craniosacral system, a protective and deep layer of your body called the cerebrospinal fluid, which envelops the spinal cord, brain, and the membranous structures protecting your central nervous system.

What Does Craniosacral therapy Do?

If you visualize your body as a computer, your computer has been working far too long when you begin experiencing pain and aches, and you start to feel overwhelmed or stressed. CST can help “reboot” your body back into shape and gives you a chance to rest. This restful state is an ideal way to process backlogged material, mostly headaches and all types of bodily pain as well as a wide range of stressors. While undergoing CST, many people tend to feel as if they are floating or they simply fall asleep.

What are the Other Positive Effects of Craniosacral Therapy?

When the body needs to cope with trauma and stress, it has to compensate, producing restrictions and tensions in the tissues around the brain and spine and in many parts of the body. These effects can cause your body systems including the central nervous system, to perform at sub-par level. When a Craniosacral therapist gently works on your systems, those restrictions and tensions are relieved, enabling your body to regain balance and to function at optimum efficiency.

What Can I Expect From a Session of Craniosacral Therapy?

Your therapist will lie you on a massage table, and he will administer a gentle touch to assess and free tissues all the way from the structures and sutures in your head to the base of your spine. Like working with a gentle tide or a wave form, the body’s rhythm will be addressed to generate a profound sense of relaxation most clients experience. Most people mistakenly assume craniosacral therapy as some type of head massage the fact is the treatment can include work on any part of the body.

What are the Uses of Craniosacral Therapy?

Craniosacral is an ideal way to break mental and physical stress habits. This means that problems such as digestive issues, immune conditions, emotional difficulties including anxiety and depression, fibromyalgia, chronic fatigue, TMJ, scoliosis, chronic back and neck pain, and headaches readily respond to this treatment. CST is good at treating complex disorders and diseases that have not gotten well with other remedies. Many clients who are seen by a craniosacral therapist who have previously attempted a wide range of treatment just to relieve pain and stress, without much results, are pleasantly surprised that within a few sessions of CST, the patterns in their bodies that have persisted for years and their longstanding pain are completely healed. CST also brings their bodies back to balance even after being off balance for several years.
