Craniosacral Therapy is a manual, non-invasive therapy using gentle hand pressure to manipulate the skeleton and connective tissues, typically the head, skull, and sacrum. The purpose is to release tensions deep in the body in order to relieve pain and dysfunction. CST is increasingly used as a preventive health measure for its ability to bolster resistance to disease, and it's effective for a wide range of medical problems associated with pain and dysfunction.
Few structures have as much influence over the body's ability to function properly as the brain and spinal cord that make up the central nervous system.
Likewise, the central nervous system is greatly influenced by the craniosacral system. The stresses and strains of life can cause tightening and distorting in the craniosacral system (membranes and cerebrospinal fluid that surround and protect the brain and spinal cord) and lead to restrictions. This will affect the health of the central nervous system, and possibly other systems it works with. So craniosacral therapy aims to activate the body’s own healing capabilities using hands-on-therapy to remove restrictions.
A CST practitioner will use their hands to feel for ease of motion and rhythm of cerebrospinal fluid surrounding the brain and spinal cord. They will then use soft touch techniques (typically 5 grams about the weight of a nickel) to release restrictions in any tissues which surround the central nervous system. This gives the body the ability to self-correct corresponding problems.
