Craniosacral Therapy (CST)

Boost your health, immunity and wellbeing with Craniosacral Therapy (CST) by gently relieving stress, soft tissue restrictions, and soothing pain.

What is Craniosacral Therapy (CST)?

Craniosacral therapy (CST) is a gentle hands-on non-invasive technique that uses a light touch to examine membranes and movement of the fluids in and around the central nervous system – the processing centre of the body – made up of the brain and spinal cord. By relieving tension in the central nervous system, CST corrects and harmonises the craniosacral system, eliminating pain, and boosting health and immunity.

By using a soft touch, specialised craniosacral therapists are able to release restrictions in the soft tissues that surround the central nervous system which have great influence over the body’s ability to function optimally.

The Benefits of Craniosacral Therapy

CST can soothe pain and release both emotional and physical stress and tension. It's also thought to help restore cranial mobility and ease or release restrictions of the head, neck, and nerves. Every day your body endures stresses and strains that it must work to compensate for. Unfortunately, these changes often cause body tissues to tighten and distort the craniosacral system. These distortions can then cause tension to form around the brain and spinal cord resulting in restrictions. This can create a barrier to the healthy performance of the central nervous system, and potentially every other system it interacts with. Such restrictions can be detected and corrected using simple methods of CST touch.

What Happens During the Treatment?

Before commencing your treatment your trained practitioner will get a full understanding of your medical history and your specific requirements. The client is fully clothed and reclined on a massage treatment table, or seated. With a light touch, the CST practitioner uses their hands to evaluate the craniosacral system by gently feeling various locations of the body to test for the ease of motion and rhythm of the cerebrospinal fluid pulsing around the brain and spinal cord. Soft-touch techniques are then used to release restrictions in any tissues influencing the craniosacral system. By normalizing the environment around the brain and spinal cord it enhances the body's ability to self-correct.
