Craniosacral Therapy: Massage for your nervous system (Part 2)
You might ask: how exactly does CST work?
Craniosacral Therapy uses gentle manipulation of bones of the skull/spine/pelvis and adjoining fascia to reduce blockages from the normal pulse of spinal fluid that flows along your brain and spinal cord. Much like a cardiologist assess your pulse or respiration rate, a craniosacral practitioner evaluates and optimizes the pulse of the craniosacral rhythm that this fluid creates in the central nervous system. The removal of these blockages to normal flow enhance the body's ability to heal via increased blood, lymph and nerve flow to injured areas of the body.
It's a gentle, less invasive way of addressing tight, painful tissues as you are going in the "back door" of the nervous system to in turn relax the nearby muscles and tissues. CST also puts the nervous system "at ease" via that parasympathetic mode so that the body can relax it's defenses and more easily receive and integrate the treatment.
What types of problems or issues can CST treat?
Craniosacral Therapy has been shown to be beneficial for many issues or conditions to include: migraines, chronic pain, TMJ, tongue-tie or oral restrictions, anxiety, concussions and even long-haul Covid symptoms.
