Craniosacral Therapy

CranioSacral Therapy (CST) is a manual treatment approach which uses light touch to assess and mobilize the cranial bones, meninges (tissue layers which surround the brain and spinal cord), as well as improve the flow of cerebrospinal fluid, the fluid which supports the central nervous system. Based on cranial osteopathy developed by Osteopath Sutherland in 1898, CST was researched and developed by John Upledger at Michigan State University from 1975-1983. By supporting the body's natural healing processes, CST has been proven effective for a wide range of medical and physical related to pain and dysfunction including:

  • Migraine Headaches
  • Chronic Neck and Back Pain
  • Central Nervous System Disorders
  • Orthopedic Problems
  • Concussions and Traumatic Brain Injuries
  • Alzheimer's Disease and Dementia
  • Spinal Cord Injuries
  • Scoliosis
  • Chronic Fatigue
  • Emotional Difficulties
  • Stress and Tension-Related Problems
  • Fibromyalgia and other Connective-Tissue Disorders
  • Temporomandibular Joint Syndrome (TMJ)
  • Neurovascular or Immune Disorders
  • Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder
  • Post-Surgical Dysfunction
