There aren’t many words to truly describe the experience of receiving Cranial Sacral Therapy. Unlike vigorous yoga or deep tissue massage, the approach is subtle, yet energetically deep. By intuitively channeling energy through their hands, therapists tap into the bones of the cranium, sacrum and spinal cord. Cerebral spinal fluid gets flowing more freely and compression from tension and injuries begins to release. As a result, our bones begin shifting into their natural position. CST is a wonderful complement to the bodies ability to heal naturally.
During a session, the client is taken into deep relaxation and may enter a “hypnogognic” state. This is the stony feeling we get when entering a lucid dream. In this place of deep relaxation, tension and past trauma in the brain and body will start to unwind. Clients are comfortably clothed and treatments are done on a massage table. The technique is soothing and non-invasive.
Cranial Sacral Therapy helps to relieve:
- Migraines and Headaches
- Chronic neck and back pain
- TMJ related to teeth grinding and clenching
- Stress and anxiety
- Brain and spinal cord injuries
- Post-traumatic stress (PTSD)
