What is Craniosacral Therapy?

craniosacral therapyCraniosacral Therapy – sometimes referred to as CST or Cranio-Sacral Therapy – uses a hands-on soft-touch technique to detect and correct issues in the craniosacral system. The craniosacral system consists of the structure and fluid that surrounds and protects the brain and spinal cord. It extends from the bones of the skull and face, down to the tailbone.

This therapy encourages the body’s own natural healing mechanisms to relieve the negative effects of an injury which has left an imprint on tissues and the central nervous system. The result is better overall physical and mental health, and increased immune resistance.

What problems can Craniosacral Therapy help?

Craniosacral Therapy is a natural pain relief technique used for treatment of pain, the effects of neurological diagnoses, Temporomandibular Joint (TMJ) pain, migraines, back pain, pelvic pain, scoliosis and many other conditions. This therapy approach can also be used to increase the range of motion in all the joints of the head and vertebrae, as well as to enhance symmetry for better function and overall health.

What can I expect from a Craniosacral Therapy treatment?

For your modesty and relaxation, you will remain fully dressed to receive this therapy. Marilyn will stand or sit positioned at various points of your head, torso or feet. At times your body will be supported by her hands to guide your body into harmony, thereby lessening your symptoms and bringing your body into balance. Craniosacral treatments take between 45 to 60 minutes.
