CranioSacral Therapy is a gentle treatment approach that may help a variety of conditions including: chronic neck and back pain, migraines, tension headaches, fibromyalgia, chronic fatigue, hormonal imbalances, digestive problems, insomnia, anxiety and depression. (CST) treatment involves touch, as light as the weight of a nickel, on areas of the head, neck, and base of the spine. The practitioner is able to “listen” to subtle rhythmic patterns in the soft tissues and fluids surrounding the central nervous system. By gently supporting and holding the techniques for many minutes, the therapist is able to facilitate the body’s own healing powers to release holding patterns and tension in the body. The client will often feel a sense of deep relaxation as the muscles and organs unwind and the bones of the head and spine subtly realign.
