CranioSacral Therapy is a gentle modality that uses very light manual palpation techniques to release fascial restrictions between the cranium and the sacrum. As part of the central nervous system, the craniosacral system – the soft tissues and fluid that protects your brain and spinal cord – have a great influence over your health and well-being. CranioSacral therapy releases the tensions from everyday stresses and strains on your body allowing the entire body to relax and self-correct.
CranioSacral Therapy is great for those who do not like a lot of pressure but need deep work to introduce changes within their body. Clients with migraines headache, TMJ dysfunction, fibromyalgia, and chronic pain often benefit from CranioSacral Therapy.
A 2015 German study has shown CST to be especially effective and safe in reducing neck pain intensity and possibly improving functional disability and quality of life for up to 3 months after intervention. The study concludes that particularly for chronic and recurrent neck pain, CST may be a worthwhile treatment option when combined with standard medical care.
