Craniosacral Therapy (CST) Services

Craniosacral Therapy (CST) is a light-touch modality that addresses the nervous system; its roots are from Osteopathy and from Dr. John E. Upledger in the Early 1970s. CST is a gentle, hands-on method of assessing and enhancing the functioning of the craniosacral system, which is comprised of the membranes and cerebrospinal fluid that surround and protect the brain and spinal cord. This system is responsible for sending and receiving signals to/from all parts of our body and thus a craniosacral dysfunction can cause pain and issues anywhere in the body or vice versa. Because of its light touch nature, CST is an extremely safe form of manual treatment for many conditions. For more information on CST, please visit Upledger.com.
