What is CranioSacral Therapy?

CranioSacral Therapy (CST) is a gentle hands-on holistic approach, a noninvasive osteopathic application that was pioneered and developed by Dr, John E. Upledger, DO, OMM, an osteopathic physician. Today, because of Dr. John Upledger’s DO, OMM international development of CranioSacral Therapy, it is now practiced by doctors, nurses, physical, occupational and massage therapist throughout the world.

CST can dynamically help to release the causes of pain, and dysfunction and help enhance your body’s health and well being. It’s frequently used to treat physical trauma, post concussion syndromes, chronic injury and pain, migraines, headache pain, and numerous other medical issues and physiological symptoms.  However, Craniosacral Therapy isn’t limited to the treatment of physical health issues.  CST has been used effectively in the treatment of PTSD, anxiety, depression, ADD, HDD, Autism, Pediatric conditions and several other mental health disorders. 

CranioSacral Therapy helps the body’s ability to take better care of you. It has been shown to help relieve a full spectrum of health issues, both in clinical trails and is practiced internationally.

CranioSacral Therapy (CST) derived from its primary focus of therapy – the craniosacral membrane system of the brain and spinal cord, and the cerebrospinal fluid that flows through them. Soft-tissue restrictions, caused by physical or emotional trauma can cause disruptions in cerebrospinal fluidity, mobility and functionality, when untreated can often lead to a variety of health problems. The unresolved impact force of a slip and fall, auto collision, or traumatic event can over time, days, weeks or even years, can create tensions in the body and impair the he central nervous system’s functionality. These problems often manifest as physical symptoms, and may also lead to psychological problems. By using light gentle touch, to rebalance the craniosacral system, a CST  practitioner works to stimulate the body’s own healing processes.

How Does CranioSacral Therapy Work?

A CST practitioner uses a gentle hands-on approach, “using only about 5 grams of pressure, the weight of a nickel”, to locate and release the craniosacral membrane movement restrictions, caused by trauma, at a pace that doesn’t overwhelm your body. Once the restrictions along the membrane system of the brain and spinal cord are located, gentle, indirect and positional release and unlatching techniques are applied to help the body self correct, rebalance and calm the central nervous system. In this way, the physical and emotional symptoms begin to abate, which in turn helps the body’s resilient to stress improve, and the body’s overall health and well-being is enhanced.
