CranioSacral Therapy (CST)
CranioSacral Therapy (CST) is a gentle and relaxing manual therapy technique. Using light touch, the therapist performs delicate mobilization of the cranial bones and sacrum, this subtle hands on treatment facilitates the release of connective tissue tightness surrounding the brain and spinal cord, or the Central Nervous System (CNS).
This light touch can help to create balance within the CNS, by inhibiting the Sympathetic Nervous System (flight or flight response), and activating the Parasympathetic Nervous System (rest and digest), it reduces stress within the body, decreases pain and promotes normal function.
CST can be beneficial and safe for everyone including newborns, to the elderly population. More and more women are using this safe integrative manual therapy to help get pregnant, to feel good during their pregnancy, as well as facilitating a smooth labor and birthing process.
