CranioSacral Therapy Awareness Month

Do you know what CranioSacral Therapy is? Have you ever experienced it? If you are suffering from headaches, neck pain, fibromyalgia, definitely give it a try. Unlike massage therapy during a CST session you stay fully clothed.

The treatment session begins with a consultation with your trained therapist to identify troubled areas. The therapist uses gentle hands-on techniques to assess the existence of possible disruptions and/or restrictions in your fascial system. Light touch and fascial release may help your muscles and organs naturally relieve stress, which improves function.

CST uses a light touch to examine membranes and movement of fluids in and around the central nervous system. Relieving tension in the central nervous system promotes a feeling of well-being by eliminating pain and boosting health and immunity.

The focus of CST is a gentle placement of hands to assist release of the body’s connective tissue, or “fascia.” Fascia (Latin word for “band”) is a covering found throughout the body including organs, glands, nerves, muscles, blood vessels, brain and spinal cord. This covering forms a body-wide connective network. CST is based on the idea that the body is interrelated at all levels.

CST is thought to improve efficiency of biological processes through boosting inherent self-regulation, self-correction and self-healing. The therapy can be used successfully with children and adults.

CranioSacral Therapy was developed in the 1970s by osteopathic physician and researcher, Dr. John E. Upledger and is utilized by a variety of healthcare practitioners worldwide to detect and relieve restrictions to relieve pain and improve overall health.
