Craniosacral Therapy (CST) aims to enhance your overall health and well-being, helping you to perform at your best physically, emotionally, and mentally.

Could craniosacral massage therapy help me?

Every day our bodies experience stress and can be afflicted by various strenuous efforts and activities. The body can only endure so much stress before tissues begin to tighten and the brain and spinal cord are affected. These compromises can then negatively affect the central nervous system and lead to the restriction of normal movement and normal flow of fluids throughout the body.

With craniosacral massage the goal is to free the central nervous system so it may eliminate pain and stress from your body while simultaneously strengthening its resistance to disease. A trained craniosacral massage therapist works to help your whole body to relax and self-correct through the release of tension.

What is a craniosacral massage therapy session like?

You might first notice that this type of massage is different from traditional deep tissue massage. Your craniosacral massage therapy session will take place in a private setting, removing any outside influences. It is done with a trained and licensed craniosacral massage therapist. You remain fully clothed while relaxing on a comfortable table, similar to those used in a typical massage therapy session.

Through light touch, your craniosacral massage therapist will focus on several “listening stations” throughout the body to monitor the fluid flowing around the brain and spinal cord. If problem areas are identified, the therapist will work to release the stress and tension by utilizing a series of techniques to release them—restoring movement.
