What is Cranial Sacral Therapy?

Read also about Acupuncture

CranioSacral Therapy is a gentle, hands-on method of evaluating and enhancing the function of a physiological body system called the CranioSacral system.

The CranioSacral system is comprised of the membranes and cerebrospinal fluid which form the fluid-filled sac around the core of the nervous system - surrounding, nourishing, and protecting the brain and spinal cord. Like the pulse of the cardiovascular system, the CranioSacral system has a rhythm that can be felt throughout the body.

Using a touch generally no heavier than the weight of a small coin, skilled practitioners can monitor this rhythm at key body areas to pinpoint the source of an obstruction or stress. Once a source has been determined, they can assist the natural movement of the fluid and related soft tissue to help the body self-correct. This simple action is often all it takes to remove a restriction. Other times, CST may be combined with other complementary therapies to help restore the body to it's optimum functioning level.

It's far-reaching effects enable CranioSacral Therapy to be useful for a wide scope of health problems, including Headache, Migraine ,Irritable Bowel Syndrome, Digestive problems Chronic back pain, Depression, Strokes, Brain and spinal cord injuries, Problems of the brain, spinal cord, and nervous system, Multiple Sclerosis, M.E., Menstrual problems, Menopausal problems, Arthritis (osteo & rheumatoid), Fibromyalgia Snydrome, TMJ dysfunction (jaw problems), Chronic Pain Syndrome, Post-operative adhesions, Dyslexia and Dyscalclia, Allergies Neuralgia Sinusitis, Tinnitus, Vertigo, High & low blood pressure.
