What is Craniosacral Therapy
Therapy (CST) is a gentle hands-on therapy that releases tensions in
and around your central nervous system, so that every other systems in
your body can relax and self-correct.
CST works on the understanding
that imbalance of the nervous system can adversely affect the
development and performance of the the brain and spinal cord and
contribute to sensory, motor and/or neurological disabilities.
there’s touch involved, CST is more like a listening than a massage.
With a very soft touch, the therapist feels and follows the subtle
motions of your tissues, even in the deeper layers, so that your body
can reveal where it needs help. We then facilitate the release of
blockages in these tissues, in order to bring a healthier and balanced
state to your body.
a CST session, most clients feel relaxed and calm. They also reported
reduction of pain, increased sense of well-being, deeper sleep
and improvement of some medical conditions.
CST was pioneered and developed by Dr. John E. Upledger following
extensive scientific studies in the 1970’s in the United States of
America. It is a complementary therapy. It may be used alongside your
conventional medical treatment but it does not replace it.
What conditions can Craniosacral Therapy help?
of the influence on the functioning of the nervous system, CST can
benefit the body in a number of ways – from reducing stress and
enhancing overall health to alleviating a wide range of specific medical
conditions associated with pain and dysfunction, including:
- Neck pain and back pain
- Headaches and migraines
- Central Nervous System Disorders
- Post-Surgical Dysfunction
- Fibromyalgia and other Connective Tissue Disorder
- Chronic Fatigue Syndrome
CST’s largest client groups are those suffering from chronic symptoms
that haven’t been aided by other approaches. The extremely light touch
involved with the application of CST makes it a safe approach for people
of all ages, including children, infants as well as newborns.
How can Craniosacral Therapy help my Chronic Pain?
find clients with chronic issues tend to have nervous systems which
are heightened, this means that they are constantly in fight or flight
mode aka Sympathetic state.
What CST does is to bring down this fight or
flight mode and help down-regulate the nervous system to go into rest
and digest mode aka Parasympathetic state.
In a way, we are retraining
and rebooting the nervous system to go back into what it should be doing
– regulating the ups and downs of our body systems.
