What can Craniosacral Therapy do for me?
CTS works to re-balance your Central Nervous System, e.g. your central "computer" that organizes everything and every process in your body: musculo-skeletal, hormonal, immune system, digestion, metabolism and emotional.
Thereby CST can address any of these systems and related problems in a therapeutic way.
CST works is a holistic approach which means it works in harmony with and respectful to what your body needs
at any given time.
It works causative instead of purely symptomatic by addressing any related systems and issues in your body that are underlying or connected to the presenting issue.
All this is done without creating side effects.
CST improves fluid movement in all systems throughout the body.
By doing this it enhances:
- the supply of nutrients to cells
- the removal of toxins and waste products from the tissues
- the circulation of immune cells, thus enhancing the body's natural defenses against disease-producing bacteria & viruses
CST evaluation can frequently uncover an imbalance before it becomes a problem!
What Does A Treatment Involve?
A typical CranioSacral Therapy session lasts about 50 minutes, and takes place in a quiet, private setting. As a client you remain fully clothed as you relax on a comfortable treatment table. The practitioner will sit and work positioned at various points of your head, torso or feet.
The first thing you might notice is a sense of deep relaxation which will generally last throughout the session. With subsequent treatments this release of tension extends into everyday life. Sometimes people even get a clear sense of the physical or emotional reorganization which is taking place.
The work can address physical aches & pains, acute & chronic disease, emotional imbalances, or simply help to develop well-being, health & vitality.
CST is so gentle that it is suitable for babies, children & the elderly, as well as adults & people in fragile or acutely painful conditions.
There are no side effects of this treatment & anyone can benefit from its profound healing which assists your own natural healing mechanisms. It often is even appropriate when other therapies may be contraindicated.
What Is CranioSacral Therapy?
CranioSacral Therapy is a light-touch approach that can create dramatic improvements in your life and wellness. It releases tensions deep in the body to relieve pain and dysfunction and improve whole-body health and performance.
Few body structures have more influence over your health and well-being than your central nervous system. And few body systems have more impact on your central nervous system than the soft tissues and fluid that protect your brain and spinal cord.
Every day you endure stresses and strains and your body absorbs them. But your body can only handle so much tension before the tissues begin to tighten and potentially affect the brain and spinal cord. Unfortunately, this can compromise the function of the central nervous system – and the performance of nearly every other system in your body.
CranioSacral Therapy releases these tensions to allow the entire body to relax and self-correct. Using a gentle touch — starting with about the weight of a nickel — practitioners evaluate your internal environment. Then they use distinctive light-touch techniques to release any restrictions they find.
