WHAT IS CRANIOSACRAL THERAPY?

Craniosacral Therapy (CST) is a gentle, hands-on approach that focuses on evaluating and enhancing the function of the craniosacral system. This system comprises the membranes and cerebrospinal fluid that surround and protect the brain and spinal cord. Developed by Dr. John Upledger in the 1970s, Craniosacral Therapy is based on the concept that the body's natural rhythms and movements can be palpated and used to promote healing.

During a Craniosacral Therapy session, you will lie comfortably on a massage table while the practitioner applies a soft touch, generally no more than the weight of a nickel to release restrictions in the craniosacral system. By doing so, the therapy helps improve the flow of cerebrospinal fluid and restore balance to the central nervous system, enhancing the body's ability to heal itself. Sessions typically last between 60 to 90 minutes. The experience is deeply relaxing, and many clients report feeling a sense of profound calm and well-being during and after the session
