What is a Craniosacral Therapist?
A Craniosacral Therapist is trained in the gentle technique of freeing the fluid surrounding the brain and spinal cord (cerebral spinal fluid). This therapy focuses on softening fascial connections and releasing restrictions. Craniosacral Therapists have to be licensed to provide bodywork and have completed additional training to become skilled in this technique. There are many different programs that specialize in CST education. Common licenses held by practitioners include PT, MT, OT, DC, ND, RN, AT, LAc.
What can craniosacral therapy do for you?
Craniosacral Therapy (CST) is a gentle hands-on treatment used to provide relief using light touch and fascial manipulation.
Some common conditions that Craniosacral Therapists address include:
Complex regional pain syndrome
Traumatic Brain Injuries
What does it look like to work with a Craniosacral Therapist?
During a CST treatment, expect to stay fully clothed. Your treatment session begins with your practitioner identifying and evaluating troubled areas by assessing your craniosacral rhythm and cranial bones. Your therapist will then use gentle pressure techniques to assess and treat your fascial system. Responses to treatments are individualized but most often, patients feel relaxed, refreshed, unwound, or tired after a CST session.
