Craniosacral Therapy (CST)

Craniosacral therapy (CST) is a noninvasive, hands-on approach that has shown promise in alleviating a wide range of ailments, from headaches and neck discomfort to chemotherapy-related side effects. 

The membranes and fluid dynamics of the central nervous system are studied gently by CST. Reducing stress in the central nervous system has been shown to improve health and immunity, as well as one's overall sense of well-being. 

CST centers on the use of light, precise pressure to aid in the release of fascia, or the body's connective tissue. Everything in the body is wrapped up with fascia (from the Latin for "band"), which includes the organs, glands, nerves, muscles, blood vessels, brain, and spinal cord. This sheath functions as a nervous system for the whole body. The core tenet of CST is that all physiological processes are interconnected. 

It is believed that CST increases the body's innate capacity for self-regulation, self-correction, and self-healing, hence improving the efficacy of biological processes. Both young and old may benefit from the treatment. 

Craniosacral therapy (CST) is another name for what is often known as "cranial sacral treatment." To put it simply, it's a kind of bodywork that helps release tension in the spinal column, sacrum (the triangle bone in the lower back), and skull. 

The CST procedure does not involve any cutting or surgery. Relieving tension and discomfort from compression by applying mild pressure to the head, neck, and back. Thus, it may aid in the treatment of several illnesses. 

It is believed that the cerebrospinal fluid flow in the central nervous system may be adjusted by the gentle manipulation of the bones in the skull, spine, and pelvis. In doing so, "blockages" in the regular flow are removed, allowing the body to mend more effectively. 

Three to ten sessions of CST may be necessary, or even maintenance treatments, depending on the condition being treated.

Benefits and uses

Studies believe that CST may ease pressure in their heads, necks, and backs. This may help alleviate discomfort and relax tension in the mind and body. In addition to restoring cranial movement, it is also believed to relieve pressure on the neck, shoulders, and nerves. 

Those of any age may benefit from craniosacral treatment. Migraines and headaches, among other disorders, could benefit from this medication:

  • migraines and headaches

  • constipation

  • irritable bowel syndrome (IBS)

  • disturbed sleep cycles and insomnia

  • scoliosis

  • sinus infections

  • neck pain

  • fibromyalgia

  • recurrent ear infections or colic in infants

  • TMJ

  • trauma recovery, including trauma from whiplash

  • mood disorders like anxiety or depression

  • difficult pregnancies
