Craniosacral Therapy (CST)

What is it :

Craniosacral therapy (CST) is a gentle technique used to release tightness and tension in the soft tissues surrounding the brain + spinal cord. We evaluate the movement and pulsation of the cerebral spinal fluid and fascia that surround our entire nervous system. CST uses a series of gentle techniques to remove blocks and restore this subtle movement, or pulse, in the central nervous system. CST is incredibly safe and gentle! We use the weight of a nickel to apply pressure to the cranial bones and release any tension.

Benefits and goals of CST

– Reduce tension in the body + central nervous systems

– Supports the flow of cerebrospinal fluid (CSF) in the central nervous systems “removes blockage”

– Supports the body abilities to heal and recover

– Guide cranial bones to neutral position after birth (helps prevents flat spots)

– Non-invasive

– Very gentle – weight of a nickel

The craniosacral system is connected with the musculoskeletal system through the vascular system as well as the sympathetic and parasympathetic nervous systems. Trauma anywhere in the body may impact the craniosacral system, restricting normal movement and inhibiting the pulse of the fluids.

What conditions does CST help with in children? :

– Latching + nursing troubles

– Colic + general fussiness

– Sleep disturbances

– Muscle imbalances + body tension

– Attention problems

– Mood and behavior disorders

– Ear infections and sinus troubles
