Craniosacral Therapy

What is Cerebrospinal Fluid (CSF)?

  • A clear fluid that travels around your brain and spinal cord
  • CSF cushions the brain and spinal cord picking up needed supplies from your blood while getting rid of waste products from brain cells 

How does Craniosacral therapy work?

  • It is believed that through the therapist’s gentle touch often referred to as “under 5 grams”, CST encourages symmetrical cerebrospinal fluid movement throughout the central nervous system thereby easing restriction at the head, neck and limbs
  • Improved Cerebrospinal fluid mobility leads to improve functioning of the central nervous system and reduction of tension, headaches and pain

What should I expect from my first CST treatment?

  • Evaluation of the flow of cerebrospinal fluid (CSF) at various areas such as the head, neck, spinal column, tailbone and other major joints
  • Using a light pressure, the therapist aims to gain symmetry and regulate CSF rhythm in the body
  • Session typically last 30-60 minutes
