CRANIO SACRAL THERAPY
Cranio Sacral Therapy (CST) is a hands-on therapy, where the touch is gentle, non-invasive and very subtle. that affects the central nervous system to assist in improving function in the whole body.
The Cranio Sacral system is the term used to describe the meningeal membranes that surround and support the brain and spinal cord, the bones of the head to which they attach and the cerebrospinal fluid that they contain that surrounds and protects the brain –
Ideally, this fascia and structures are all well aligned, the spinal fluid can flow round the brain and spinal cord easily but owing to postural or structural changes through out life or often in utero, tension and stresses can occur that impact upon the smooth steady flow rhythm of the fluid causing ‘dis order’ to the affected areas
Using our ‘listening hands’, tuned to the feeling of the craniosacral rhythm, we feel how well the rhythm is reflecting out to the rest of the body and what we may be able to do to improve its function with gentle techniques to unwind restrictions in the body’s fascia
An important part of our approach is understanding that the person’s body that knows exactly what it needs to do to release the restrictions and our hands assist to facilitate this. This can mean that the area we treat is sometimes different from the area in which symptoms are experienced, as our bodies can be very clever in how they adapt to stresses and strains.
Patients find CranioSacral Therapy effective for a wide range of problems associated with discomfort, pain and dysfunction. Interestingly, this approach also appears to complement and stimulate the body's natural healing processes, so CST is increasingly used as a preventive health measure to keep in optimum shape.
