After years of clinical testing and research, Osteopathic Physician John E. Upledger developed CranioSacral Therapy (CST). It is a safe, non-invasive yet powerful hands-on treatment that releases tensions deep inside the body. It is very effective in relieving pain, releasing stress, and improving whole-body health as well as mental clarity for daily performance.
With its gentle touch, CranioSacral therapy re-establishes the normal rhythm and flow within the craniosacral system. It corrects the strain patterns in the body and facilitates the realignment from head (cranium) to the base of spine (sacrum). It also encourages the proper pumping and flow of cerebrospinal fluid, which bathes the brain and central nervous system, and supplies the necessary nutrients for its optimal functions. With a healthy central nervous system, the proper functioning of other systems of the body will be enhanced, including the nervous system, the endocrine system, and the digestive system.
Treatment is fully clothed whilst lying comfortably on a couch. During treatment the client may experience heat, tingling, pulsations and other sensations, including a deep sense of relaxation. CST can correct a wide variety of muscular and skeletal complaints and offer excellent nerve-balancing support.
