*note that Osteopathic Manual Practitioners and some Chiropractors also use Cranial Sacral Therapy as a modality. However, a cranial sacral therapist specifically uses CST alone.
Craniosacral therapy involves gentle, precise touch intended to release tension and restore circulation and function. It is a gentle hands-on treatment in which you lie fully clothed on the table while your therapist uses a light touch to examine your membranes and movement of fluids in and around the central nervous system. Releasing these blockages allows your cerebral spinal fluid to flow freely up and down your spinal cord. CST is thought to improve the efficiency of your biological processes through boosting self-regulation, self correction and self-healing.CST may provide relief from a variety of symptoms including headaches, neck pain and post-concussion syndrome, among many others. Releasing tension in the central nervous system promotes a feeling of well-being by eliminating pain and boosting your health and immunity. The therapy can be used successfully with children and adults.
