What is CranioSacral Therapy?

 Is a noninvasive gentle hands-on holistic approach, that dates back to the beginning of Osteopathic Medicine and the Cranial Field. Pioneered by William G. Sutherland D.O., (1873–1954) and further developed by Dr, John E. Upledger, DO, OMM, (1932 – 2012) an osteopathic physician, who exclusively developed it for non-medical, healthcare providers, ranging from physical, occupational therapists, nursing, and licensed massage therapist.

Dr. John E. Upledger, D.O., O.M.M. took Dr William Sutherland’s work, researched and further developed his techniques, (1975 – 1983) and coined the term “CranioSacral Therapy” (CST), while at Michigan State University.

CST unique feature, is “Upledger’s CST 10 Step Protocol. Today, because of Dr. John Upledger’s D.O., O.M.M. work, CranioSacral Therapy is taught and practiced internationally, and throughout the world.

CST 10 step protocol, can dynamically help to release the causes of pain, dysfunction and help enhance your body’s health and well being.

It’s frequently used to treat migraines, headache pain, physical trauma, post concussion syndromes, chronic injury and pain, and numerous other medical conditions, physiological symptoms.  However, Craniosacral Therapy isn’t limited to the treatment of physical health issues.  CST has also been shown to be an effective treatment for Post Traumatic Stress Syndrome (PTSD), Emotional Anxiety, Depression, ADD, ADHD, Autism, Pediatric conditions and other mental health disorders.

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 soft-tissue and craniosacral membrane restrictions, in an effect to rebalance craniosacral system’s mobility and enhance it’s cerebrospinal fluidity, which helps the body’s natural healing, by calming and rebalancing the central nervous system.  Thereby leading to the body’s overall health and well-being.
