CranioSacral Therapy

CranioSacral therapy (CST) is a gentle, non-invasive form of cranial osteopathy, developed by John Upledger in the 1970s for the purpose of evaluating and enhancing the craniosacral system, the environment in which the brain and spinal cord function. This hands-on healing bodywork involves holding and light touch (less than 5 grams of pressure) of the synarthrodial joints in the cranium (skull) and sacrum (a triangular bone in the lower back formed from fused vertebrae and located between the hipbones of the pelvis) with almost imperceptible movement to help reach deeper layers of cerebrospinal fluid (CSF) and membranes in the spinal canal, the brain and the spinal cord itself.

How CranioSacral Therapy Works

The nearly imperceptible movements of CST affect the pressure and circulation of cerebrospinal fluid, the fluid that surrounds and cushions the brain and spinal cord, which intervenes in the autonomic nervous system functions and helps release bone and membrane restrictions. The gentle CST manipulations reduce body tension and increase activity of the parasympathetic nervous system, which enhances the body’s own healing capabilities, helps promote relaxation, facilitates pain relief and decreases symptoms associated with stress, anxiety and depression.
