What is CranioSacral Therapy (CST)?
CranioSacral Therapy (CST) is a concept and practice that is, for the most part, unknown to the common person. Its goal is to radically improve whole-body health and performance, especially in the case of brain injury. It is used to heal and treat many things and can be a very beneficial addition to ordinary healthcare and treatments.
Your craniosacral system is the soft tissues and fluid that protect your brain and spinal cord. When stress and strain levels have surpassed the amount that your muscles can handle, it begins to affect this area and cause potential damage. The soft tissues in your craniosacral system begin to tense up and affect other systems in your body such as the central nervous system. Therefore, by CranioSacral Therapy handles the problem at the source.
CranioSacral Therapyfocuses on releasing this tension in order for the body to relax and correct itself. Practitioners use a light-touch approach to assess the internal environment and use light-touch techniques to release any restrictions or blockages they find. Releasing tension and restrictions in this way allows the body to be relaxed, be relieved of stress and pain, strengthen disease resistance, and enhance overall health and well being. Due to this type of therapy being extremely gentle and light in touch, it can be used on everyone from newborns to elders.
CranioSacral Therapy can be used to relieve many kinds of pain, illness, and dysfunction in the body including, but not limited to, the following:
· Migraines and Headaches
