CranioSacral Therapy

CranioSacral Therapy (CST) is a gentle, hands-on method of evaluating and enhancing the function of the craniosacral system — the physiological body system comprised of the membranes and cerebrospinal fluid that surround and protect the brain and spinal cord. CST enhances the body’s natural healing processes to improve the operation of the central nervous system, dissipate the negative effects of stress, enhance health and strengthen resistance to disease. The method generally requires only five grams of pressure to test for restrictions in various parts of the craniosacral system. Often the evaluation alone will help resolve the presenting problem. Dr. John Upledger, D.O. has developed CranioSacral Therapy as it is practiced today, and he is considered one of the foremost authories in the field.

CST enhances the body's natural healing processes and has been effective for a wide range of problems associated with pain and dysfunction. The technique is increasingly used as a preventive health measure for its ability to bolster resistance to disease and sustain overall good health.
