Craniosacral Therapy (CST) is a gentle, Osteopathic-based approach that is used to evaluate and treat the craniosacral system. The word "craniosacral" can be described by breaking the word into two parts; cranio (the head) and sacral (pelvic/sacral area). CST involves the fluid (lymphatic, arterial, cerebrospinal) and tissues between the cranial and sacral areas; these connective tissues and fluid wrap around the brain and follow the spinal cord to the sacrum. Restrictions can sometimes develop in the tissues and fluid, limiting the "natural flow" within the craniosacral system, resulting in tension, pain, stiffness, and decreased mobility.
Craniosacral Therapy is a gentle, non-invasive manual technique that will help to release restrictions and stimulate the flow of fluids and tissues. Release of restrictions can improve CS movement, mobility, neurologic impairment, and proprioceptive awareness, resulting in a decrease in pain, tension, and stress.
