What is Craniosacral Therapy (CST)?

Craniosacral Therapy (CST) is a gentle approach that releases tensions deep in the body. It promotes well-being by eliminating pain and boosting health and immunity. It was pioneered and developed by Osteopathic Physician John E. Upledger after years of clinical testing and research at Michigan State University.

What Can Craniosacral Therapy help?

My specialty is helping highly sensitive women who are experiencing feeling overwhelmed with stress and chronic symptoms. In addition to this population, I also work with people of all ages, including newborns, and support things like:

  • Headaches & Migraines
  • TMJ
  • Grief
  • PTSD
  • Autoimmune Disease
  • Hormone Imbalance & Infertility
  • Mood disorders
  • Fibromyalgia
  • Colic & Reflux

All in-person sessions (with the exception of Vibrational Healing) include Craniosacral Therapy as the foundation, with additional modalities woven in. You may opt to have 100% of your session be CST by letting me know at your appointment.

How Does CST Work?

Throughout life, your body endures stresses and strains that often cause body tissues to tighten and distort the craniosacral system.

This creates a barrier to the healthy performance of the central nervous system, and potentially every other system it interacts with.

Fortunately, such restrictions can be detected and corrected. With a light touch, the CST practitioner uses their hands to evaluate the craniosacral system.

Techniques are then used to release restrictions and restore balance, enhancing the body’s ability to self-correct.

How Many Sessions Will It Take?

Typically the longer you have had the symptoms, the more sessions it will take to resolve them.

At your initial session, I will evaluate how your body responds and recommend the frequency of treatment.
