What is it?
CranioSacral Therapy (CST) is a light touch approach that can create dramatic improvements in your life. It releases tensions deep in your body to relieve pain and dysfunction, and improve whole body health and performance.
Few body systems have more influence over your health and well being than the central nervous system. And few body systems have more impact on your central nervous system than the craniosacral system--the soft tissues and fluid that surrounds your brain and spinal cord.
You endure stresses and strains, and your body absorbs them. Your body can only handle so much of this before the tissues start to tighten therefore affecting the brain and spinal cord, thus compromise the function of the entire central nervous system and every other system in your body.
CST releases tensions to allow the entire body to relax and self correct. By freeing the central nervous system CST has been shown to naturally reduce pain and stress, strengthen your resistance to disease and enhance your heath and well-being.

What to expect from a session.
A typical CST session takes place in a quiet, private setting. You will remain fully clothed as you relax on a padded table. Your Therapist begins with gently touching various part of the head and body to monitor the rhythm of the cerebrospinal fluid as they detect and locate areas of weak flow or tissue motion.
Delicate manual techniques are then applied to release any tensions and improve the function of your Central Nervous system. A session can last up to an hour or more and may be integrated with other therapies.
What you experience from your session is highly individual. The sessions are generally deeply relaxing, creating a feeling of warmth or gentle pulsing in the areas that are worked.
