The Healing Power of Gentle Touch
Why is CranioSacral Therapy so Important?
CranioSacral Therapy (CST) is a light-touch manual therapy that can
effectively improve whole body health. It releases tensions deep in the body to
relieve pain and dysfunction and improves performance and focus while
decreasing the effects of stress.
Few body structures have more influence over your health and well-being than
your central nervous system. And few body systems have more impact on your
central nervous system than the craniosacral system - the soft tissues and
fluid that protect your brain and spinal cord.
Every day you endure stresses and strains and your body absorbs them. But
your body can only handle so much tension before the tissues begin to tighten
and potentially affect the central nervous system. Unfortunately, this can
compromise the function of the central nervous system - and the performance
of nearly every other system in your body.
CranioSacral Therapy releases those tensions to allow the entire body to relax
and self-correct. Using a gentle touch - Practitioners evaluate your internal
environment. Then they use distinctive light-touch techniques to release any
restrictions they find. By freeing the central nervous system to perform at its
best, CranioSacral Therapy naturally eliminates pain and stress, strengthens
your resistance to disease, and enhances your health and well-being. And
because it's so gentle, CranioSacral Therapy can be effective for all ages,
from newborns to elders.

What Can I Expect From A Session?
A typical CranioSacral Therapy session takes place in a quiet, private setting.
You relax on a comfortable padded table. Your therapist begins by gently
monitoring your central nervous system. By carefully locating weak flow or
motion, your practitioner can address those areas of weakness throughout the
body to the original source of dysfunction or injury. Delicate manual
techniques are then used to release those originating problem and improve
the form and function of your central nervous system thereby increasing the
wellness of your health.
A CranioSacral Therapy session can last up to an hour or more. It can be
used alone or integrated with other therapies to create powerful effects. What
you experience from your own session is highly individual. The sessions are
generally deeply relaxing.
