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 women who feel overwhelmed with chronic pain and anxiety but I also work with people of all ages, including newborns, and treat things like:
- Headaches, Neck & Jaw Pain
- Hormone Imbalance & Infertility
- Pregnancy discomfort, and breech presentations
- Postpartum mood disorders
- Lactation & Latch
- Colic, Reflux, Torticollis
- Autism, ADHD, & Sensory Processing Disorder
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, for most people a range of 4-12 sessions is needed to achieve the results they desire. However, it is not unheard of to have a single session be all that is needed.
After your initial session, we will evaluate how your body responds, and then, if necessary, I will create a personalized treatment plan to get you to your goal of feeling good again. I always recommend the number of sessions that I believe will get the results that you want.
