Craniosacral therapy (CST) can help balance the body’s natural rhythm, release tension, and optimize healing During the session, you’ll be fully clothed and lie on a padded table.
Your certified craniosacral therapist uses a sensitive touch to assess the fluid that flows around the brain and spinal cord. As the therapist locates blockages and encourages their release, the central nervous system quiets and continued relaxation and releasing occur.
The therapist will begin by gently placing their hands on the body. The cranium (skull) and the sacrum (tailbone) are very often where touch occurs, however each bone and body part is a hologram of the whole, so the whole body can be treated by a specific part.
For example, the area in a person’s cranium that is tight and may be contributing to a headache can be treated by work at the sacrum, allowing an adjustment that directly affects the spinal cord, the spinal column, and thus the cranium.
During CST, you usually experience a very deep state of relaxation. As the mind
becomes more still, you may sense movements of energy or releases in specific areas of the body. Emotional releases can be experienced along with insight (from a quiet mind) and physical releases. If you have any questions, just ask the therapist.
