About Our Craniosacral Therapy (CST) Treatment

Craniosacral Therapy (CST) is a gentle, hands-on approach to healing and wellness that focuses n assessing and enhancing the movement and flow of cerebralspinal fluid, fluid surrounding the brain and spinal cord. Developed by osteopath Dr.John Upledger in the 1970’s, CST is based on the concept that the craniosacral system, made up of the skull, spinal cord and sacrum, has a rhythmic movement that can be felt and manipulated to promote health.

The craniosacral system plays a vital role in the functioning of the central nervous system (CNS), as well as the overall well-being of the body. Once areas of restriction or imbalance within the body are identified, gentle techniques are used to release tension and promote self-healing within the body to restore balance, alleviate pain and improve overall functioning of the CNS.
