Craniosacral Therapy helps to turn on your healing power for optimal health
Craniosacral Therapy (CST) was pioneered by developed by John E. Upledger, an osteopathic physician who served as a clinical researcher and Professor of Biomechanics at Michigan State University (1975- 1983) where he conducted intensive studies in the field.
Craniosacral Therapy (CST) is a very gentle, hands-on method that evaluates and enhances the function of the craniosacral system in the body. This system is comprised of the membranes and cerebrospinal fluid that surround and protect the brain and spinal cord.
When I treat people with this modality, I use a soft touch generally no greater than 5 grams, or about the weight of a nickel, to release restrictions in the craniosacral system, which has been shown to improve the functioning of the central nervous system, as well as many other systems of the body, such as digestive, musculoskeletal, respiratory, circulatory, and more. CST has also been shown to help with the physical components related to somatic conditions such as Post Traumatic Stress, depression and anxiety.
Most people think that Craniosacral Therapy is helpful for back pain, headaches, migraines, head injuries, fibromyalgia, chronic fatigue, scoliosis, learning disabilities, stress and tension related disorders, emotional difficulties, central nervous system disorders and other complaints. Although Craniosacral Therapy is usually successful for treating these health disorders this is just the tip of the iceberg.
Craniosacral Therapy knows that everyone is born with an underlying infinite order of intelligence or “vital life-force” energy ( often referred to as” chi” in Chinese Medicine, or prana in Ayurvedic Medicine). This is the same intelligence that keeps your heart beating and runs your body. This constant undetectable intelligence is carried by the nervous system to every cell in your body and supplies it with all the information it needs to function as planned – every minute of every day.
Craniosacral Therapists call this energy “Innate Intelligence”. It is the intelligence that heals the body and is always with you!
If every cell in your body is functioning at 100%, this equals perfect health.
Unfortunately structural imbalances and spinal misalignments can interfere with the transmission of this innate intelligence, causing imbalances and altered cell formation that, in time, can create serious health problems and disease.
My main job as an Upledger-trained Craniosacral Therapist is to help you correct these structural imbalances and thus to allow the innate intelligence to go where it needs to go and to restore impeded circulation, alleviate any nerve impingement and consequently allow dysfunctional cells to heal themselves.
The Power that made your body can heal your body.
As your Craniosacral Therapist I help you turn on your healing power and create optimal health.
Craniosacral Therapy does not involve any spinal manipulations or adjustments but focuses on the use of light-touch therapies to align the structural integrity of the body that is the root cause of many structural and spinal imbalances.
What to expect?
A Craniosacral Therapy Session is usually 60-minutes long. You don’t have to take off your clothes. I will ask you to lay down on the massage table with your clothes on.
Through gentle hands-on techniques, I will search for imbalances and use corrective measures to help your body get back into alignment. Physical, as well as emotional releases are known to happen during this form of treatment.
I offer both one-off discovery session, as well as package deals (4+1: buy 4 and get the 5th session free!). Contact me if you’d like to take advantage of this special offer).
