CranioSacral Therapy

“The healing power of a gentle touch”.  

Craniosacral therapy is a highly effective light-touch therapy that works with the whole body and the source of pain and dysfunction simultaneously.  With CST and given proper support, the body will heal itself, creating a custom solution to any problem that is causing discomfort.  Therapists place their hands over the area of the body that is most related to the source of the problem and they are trained to feel and monitor changes in the body’s tissues.  In the process of monitoring, therapists hands follow changes in the client’s body as it occurs rather than making the decision to move a person’s body in any given direction.  This is the principal difference between CST and most other therapeutic types of bodywork.
