The Healing Power of a Gentle Touch

Why is Craniosacral Therapy So Important?

Craniosacral Therapy (CST) is a light touch approach that can create dramatic improvements in your life. It releases tension deep in the body to relieve pain and dysfunction and improve whole-body health and performance.

Few body structures have more influence over your health and well-being than your central nervous system. And few body systems have more impact on your central nervous system than the cranial system – the soft tissues and fluid that protect your brain and spinal cord.

Everyday you endure stresses and strains and your body absorbs them. But your body can only handle so much tension before the tissues begin to tighten and potentially affect the brain and spinal cord.

Unfortunately, this can compromise the function of the central nervous system – and the performance of nearly every other system in the body.

Craniosacral Therapy (CST) releases those tensions to allow the entire body to relax and self-correct. Using a gentle touch starting with about the weight of a nickle practitioners evaluate your internal environment. Then they use distinctive light-touch techniques to release any restrictions they find.

By freeing the central nervous system to perform at its best, Craniosacral Therapy (CST) naturally eliminates pain and stress, strengthens your resistance to disease and enhances your health and well-being.

And because it is so gentle, (CST) can be effective for all ages, from newborns to elders.

What Can I Expect from A Craniosacral Therapy Session?

A typical massage session takes place in a quiet, private setting. You remain fully clothed as you relax on a comfortable, padded table.

Shelley (your therapist) begins by gentle touching various parts of your body to monitor the rhythm of the fluid that is flowing around 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 original source of dysfunction.

Delicate manual techniques are then used to release those problem areas and improve the form and function of your central nervous system.

Craniosacral Therapy (CST) session can last up to an hour or more. It can be used alone or intergrated with other therapies and exercise to create powerful effects.

How Was CST Developed?

Craniosacral Therapy was developed by Dr. John E. Upledger, an osteopathic physician featured in TIME magazine as one of America’s next wave of innovators. From 1975 to 1983, Dr. Upledger was a professor of biomechanics at the College of Osteopathic Medicine at Michigan State University.

While he was there he led a team of anatomists, physiologists, biophysicists and bioengineers who performed the basis for the approach he named Craniosacral Therapy or CST.
