CranioSacral Therapy

CranioSacral Therapy (CST) is an extremely relaxing, light touch therapy with profound effects. It releases tension deep in the fascia of the body; relieves pain and motor dysfunction; as well as improve whole body performance. The craniosacral system is comprised of not only the skull, spine and sacrum, but also the tissues and fluids that surround these structures. The health and structural balance of the craniosacral system has a direct impact on the central nervous system. Frequently when there is an imbalance in the craniosacral system the central nervous system is not perfoming optimally - which in turn affects the performance of our entire body. Stress, injury, and emotional trauma can have a huge impact on the craniosacral system as well as the central nervous system.

Craniosacral Therapy releases restrictions caused by stress, injury or trauma; rebalances the craniosacral system and allows the entire body to self-correct. Using a gentle touch, the practitioner applies light pressure to a patient's skull, face, spine, torso and pelvis to release any restrictions found in the body. By freeing the craniosacral system to perform optimally, CST naturally eliminates pain and stress, strengthens the body's resistance to disease, and enhances health and well-being. Often patients with recalcitrant pain, that is non-responsive to deeper work, find relief with CST.

Normally a CST session is done with the patient fully clothed. It can be a stand-alone therapy but is often integrated with acupuncture to create powerful effects. Because it is so gentle, it can be effective for all ages from newborn to the elderly.

Many patients find CST to be extremely effective for migraines, stress, chronic fatigue and fibromyalgia. In addition to these, CST commonly addresses:

  • Brain fog or lack of mental clarity
  • Depression
  • Chronic neck and back pain
  • Tension-related disorders
  • Motor-coordination impairments
  • Brain and spinal cord injuries
  • TMJ Syndrome
  • Central Nervous System Disorders
  • PTSD (Post Traumatic Stress Disorder)

CranioSacral Therapy Reviews

I’m a highly stressed out person. I’ve tried a lot of different types of relaxation based therapies and this is the only therapy where I can get completely relaxed. This stuff is awesome!

I have fibromyalgia. My pain seems to spike when I’m very anxious or stressed. Craniosacral work seems to help keep everything under control.

I had a terribly low immune system and had a lot of fatigue for the past two years. I’ve worked with Stacy doing a combo of crano-sacral, acupuncture and herbs. After 8 sessions my immune system is so much better and my fatigue is almost gone. What a life changer.
