Services - Craniosacral

Craniosacral therapy (CST) is a gentle, non-invasive form of hands on bodywork pioneered by Dr. William Garner Sutherland at the turn of the twentieth century.

CST theory and practice is based on understanding the continuous subtle movements of the cranial bones, which result in a palpable rhythm.

The subtle movement extends outward to the entire body, in response to the fluid pressure changes around the central nervous system. A therapist gently works with the spine and the skull, and its cranial sutures, diaphragms, and fascia of the body. Craniosacral therapists are able to detect disturbances in the rhythm and guide the body toward fullest functioning. CST is beneficial for:

  • headaches
  • tinnitus, hearing loss, and vertigo
  • TMJ syndrome
  • stress disorders and insomnia
  • muscle and joint pain or injury
  • many neurological conditions and pain syndromes
  • vocal tension and fatigue
Patients remain fully clothed during a treatment and treatments generally are one hour long.
