Craniosacral Therapy (CST)
What is Craniosacral Therapy (CST)?
CST is a deeply profound therapy that helps connect a person with the 'Self', Using a very light touch, restrictions in your body may be felt and released, aiding your body to return to fluidity and balance. CST helps elevate your body to the rest and restore phase of our nervous system, which is so often lacking in our busy lives, one client describes it as “recharging her batteries”.
During a session a written case history is taken, you lie fully clothed on a couch, I use my hands to make a light contact from your head (cranium) to the base of your spine (sacrum).
Who is it for?
The therapy is so gentle and non-invasive it is suitable for everyone from newborn babies to the elderly. It works with the whole body. It is a soft tissue therapy and does NOT involve any manipulation of bones.
All babies could benefit from CST. During birth a baby is completely compressed. Sometimes their little bones may slide over each other and stay stuck, especially in the cranium (skull). Compression of the spine may also occur. When compression occurs, if not released it may impede the workings of the whole body.
CST allows the therapist to find stuck areas and by engaging with the craniosacral system, with a very light touch, help to release them. This can help breathing problems, sucking and feeding issues, tongue tie, colic, digestive symptoms, sleep problems & improve bonding, to name a few.
