therapists use gentle movements applied to the skull and
vertebrae to balance the circulation of the liquid that
surrounds the brain. Because the whole body expands and
contracts with the rhythm created by the cranial pulse
-- the pumping of this fluid -- the cranial sacral
system affects the entire body.
therapy (CST) was pioneered and developed by osteopathic physician , John Upledger, following
extensive scientific studies from 1975 to 1983 at
Michigan State University, where he served as a clinical
researcher and Professor of Biomechanics.
CST is a gentle, hands-on method of evaluating and
enhancing the functioning of a physiological body system
called the cranio-sacral system - comprised of the
membranes and cerebrospinal fluid that surround and
protect the brain and spinal cord.
Using a soft touch generally no greater than 5 grams, or
about the weight of a nickel, practitioners release
restrictions in the cranio-
sacral system to improve the
functioning of the central nervous
complementing the body's natural healing
processes, CST is increasingly used as a preventive health
measure for its ability to bolster resistance to
disease, and is effective for a wide range of medical
problems associated with pain and dysfunction,
Neck and Back Pain
Nervous System Disorders
Brain and Spinal Cord Injuries
and Tension-Related Problems
and other Connective-Tissue Disorders
Joint Syndrome (TMJ)
or Immune Disorders
on the cranial sacral system brings the body into
balance, releasing accumulated stress to create a
general sense of well-being. It also can help with
headaches, neck and jaw pain, and problems with the
pelvis and the diaphragm.
Amazing! Everyone needs to experience
Cranio-Sacral therapy in their
life. This has been the best experience and
results I have ever had.
Thank you, Karen!
