images-1Craniosacral Therapy

Craniosacral technique (CST) is a form of physical medicine/bodywork that provides very gentle manipulation of the joints of the cranium, spine and pelvis to ease the central nervous system. Following palpation and assessment of the rhythmic movements of the cranium, selective pressures can be applied to the cranial bones, a patient’s spine and/or pelvis to achieve a therapeutic effect. It is believed that this kind of manipulation regulates cerebrospinal fluid. Patients often experience deep relaxation with this treatment. CST is believed to treat a wide variety of conditions which include headaches, chronic neck and back pain, chronic fatigue, PTSD, TMJ, stress and tension, colic and other disorders.
