CranioSacral Therapy releases membrane tensions, and allows the body to self-correct. This release of tension can eliminate pain and stress, strengthen your resistance to disease, and enhance your health and well-being. CST is a gentle, hands-on method of evaluating and enhancing the functioning of a physiological body system called the craniosacral system - comprised of the membranes and cerebrospinal fluid that surround and protect the brain and spinal cord.
Using a soft touch generally no greater than 5 grams, or about the weight of a nickel, practitioners release restrictions in the craniosacral system to improve the functioning of the central nervous system. It's benefits were discovered in the early part of this century by osteopathic physician William Sutherland.
And today, this healing art is practiced by over 40,000 practitioners including osteopathic physicians, medical doctors, chiropractors, acupuncturists & massage therapists.
The CranioSacral System is the core area of the central nervous system & includes the:
- Cranium (skull)
- Spinal Cord
- Attached bones like the face & mouth
- Tailbone or sacrum area
The membranes & fluid that surround, protect & nourish the brain & spinal cord are also included in the CranioSacral System. When restrictions occur in the soft tissues that surround the central nervous system the body gets out of balance causing many different types of health conditions and disorders. Since the central nervous system has so much influence over the body’s ability to function properly & keep healthy the goal of CTS is to find & release any restrictions in the soft tissues that surround the central nervous system. When restrictions are found & released the body begins to come into balance again, restoring the person to a normal healthy level again. CTS really works & in fact when therapists find restrictions . . . . patients experience them as sore spots & can actually feel the restrictions being released.
CTS is a really amazing therapy that can help people recover, regain their health and get back on the road to a happier and more active lifestyle.If you would like a more in-depth explanation about CranioSacral Therapy, Please visit the links to these sites for more technical information.
