Put simply, Cranio-sacral therapy (Cranial Sacral Therapy), or CST is gentle hands-on treatment that involves identifying and releasing restrictions that may occur in the tissues, bones, membranes and cerebrospinal fluid (CSF) that surround the brain and spinal cord.
Cranio Sacral Therapy is effectively used in the treatment of:
Colic & Digestive Conditions -Infant colic, disrupted sleep patters and related distress are some of the most common areas we use CST to treat. Restrictions and muscle tension may occur as the baby’s bones and muscles grow, particularly after a difficult birth. CST is used to identify and ease restriction that may occur.
Migraines, headaches and nausea are sometimes symptomatic of restrictions and imbalances in the cranio-sacral system. Manipulating the fluid rhythm to correct restrictions in perispinal tissues often helps to ease the onset and symptoms.
CST is a gentle therapy that also focuses on healing and emotional well being. It helps to reduce the accumulation of stress, enhances general health, strengthens central nervous system functions and increases resistance to illness. It is successfully used in treating back, neck and shoulder pain, TMJ, and other pain where stress and tension is a factor in onset
I use cranio-sacral therapy alone and sometimes in conjunction with my physiotherapy. My patients have found that the therapy has helped enormously in their treatments, particularly when stress & tension has been a factor in their every day life.
