CranioSacral Therapy

What is Craniosacral Therapy (CST)?

Craniosacral Therapy (CST) is a gentle, hands-on treatment that helps relieve pain and tension stored in the body. The treatment is based on the premise that the entire body is connected and interrelated at all levels. A CST treatment involves examining the membranes and the movement of fluids around the central nervous system to help relieve tension, eliminate pain and re-teach the body to heal itself.  CST boosts your overall health and promotes a general feeling of well-being. 

What can you expect from a Craniosacral Therapy (CST) session?

During a CST treatment, a trained therapist will use her hands to identify troubled areas of your body. By applying gentle pressure to points on the cranial bones and the sacrum, your muscles and organs naturally release stress and improve the functioning.

CST is a very relaxing, sensory experience with soft lighting and music. You will leave your session with a sense of deep relaxation and rest.
