CranioSacral Therapy (CST)
Benefits: Improved mobility of the spine and cranial bones, improved flow of cranial fluid, relief of headaches and jaw pain, increased sense of wellbeing, improved sleep, decreased stress, very light tough, suitable for all conditions
CST theory and practice is based on understanding the continuous subtle movements of the cranial bones, which result in a rhythm of approximately six to twelve cycles per minute. This rhythm is understood as a response to cerebrospinal fluid (CSF) fluctuations within the spinal cord and brain environment.The subtle movement extends outward to the entire body, in response to the fluid pressure changes around the CNS.
The core of the craniosacral system is the tissue that surrounds the brain and spinal cord and contains the cerebrospinal fluid. For this reason, releasing adhesions and restrictions can address a variety of issues like migraines and headaches, chronic neck and back pain, stress, and motor coordination impairment. It can also effectively treat brain and spinal cord injuries, chronic fatigue, fibromyalgia, jaw pain, scoliosis, and central nervous system disorders.
In addition, CST effectively and gently unwinds facial tissue anywhere in the body. All the muscles, bones, organs, nerves, and skin are covered in layers of this tissue. Scar tissue and adhesions from injuries, accidents, surgery, and emotional trauma held in the body are gently softened and released.
