CranioSacral Therapy

CranioSacral Therapy (CST) is a gentle, light touch method of releasing tensions deep in the body to relieve pain. CST also releases restrictions around the brain and spinal cord to enhance central nervous system performance and allow the body to relax and self-correct. CranioSacral Therapy strengthens the body's natural healing processes to enhance resistance to disease and overall health. Using a light touch (starting with the weight of a nickel) to evaluate your internal environment, this technique is used to release restrictions found.CranioSacral Therapy has also effective in aiding the body's ability to help relieve individuals with pain, illness and dysfunction. Including:

  • Migraine Headaches
  • Chronic Neck and Back Pain
  • Motor-Coordination Impairments
  • Central Nervous System Disorders
  • Brain and Spinal Cord Injuries
  • Orthopedic Problems
  • Traumatic Brain and Spinal Cord Injuries
  • Learning Disabilities
  • Chronic Fatigue
  • ADD/ADHD
  • Emotional Difficulties
  • Stress and Tension-Related Problems
  • Fibromyalgia and other Connective-Tissue Disorders
  • Temporomandibular Joint Syndrome (TMJ)
  • Post-Surgical Dysfunction
Your CranioSacral Therapy session will take place in a quiet, private setting and you will remain fully clothed in a relaxing environment. The therapist will contact various parts of your body while listening carefully. This hands on technique allows the therapist to monitor your body's fluid rhythm that moves around your central nervous system to locate areas of weak fluid flow or tissue movement. By locating the weak areas the practitioner can trace through the body to the original source of dysfunction.

 Somato Emotional Release

SER is an aspect of Craniosacral Therapy in which tissue release uncovers emotional or stress related trauma in the body. Trauma enters the body in a specific way from an injury or impact and by realigning the tissue in the exact way that the initial trauma entered the body, the tissue along with any trapped emotional aspects from the incident can be released. 

Treatments are most often covered by Extended Healthcare under Physiotherapy.
