Craniosacral Therapy (also called CST or cranial osteopathy) is a method of treatment used by massage therapists, naturopaths, chiropractors and osteopaths, who manually apply a subtle movement of the spinal and cranial bones to bring the central nervous system into harmony. This therapy involves assessing and addressing the movement of the cerebrospinal fluid (CSF), which can be restricted by trauma to the body, such as through falls, accidents, general nervous tension, orthodontia, motor vehicle accidents, sports injuries, difficult childbirth and the like.
CSF moves in rhythm called a Tide, the cyclical wave of the fluid within the membrane around the brain and spinal cord; a pulse not unlike the blood flow pulse, palpated by the gentle touch of skilled hands. CST gently works with the spine, cranium, fascia and it’s continuum of connecting structures down to the toes. With this treatment, the restrictions of nerve passages are eased, the movement of CSF through the spinal canal can be optimized, and misaligned bones can be restored to their proper position.
This therapy is said to be particularly indicated for mental stress, “over active mind,” “computer neck” and back pain, concussion, migraines or chronic headaches, vertigo, hip pain/dysfunction, Parkinson’s disease. It is also offers relief for chronic nervous conditions such as fibromyalgia, digestive trouble, traumatic experience (vigilant holding patterns generated by abuse or attack for instance,) or PTSD.
A typical session lasts 30 minutes to 1 hour while you lie comfortable and clothed on a table. The therapist typically begins by placing her hand on your head, sections of your spine or tailbone, or lower legs.
Sensations can vary. Many people become quickly quiet in their mind, deeply relaxed, lucid or sleepy. You may have a heightened awareness of your body, feel warmth, a decrease in pain or even the pulse of your own cranial rhythm. Afterwards you may feel energetic, grounded, relaxed and introspective. Even if you don’t feel much during your initial sessions it is important to remember that profound changes are occurring on a subtle level. One will begin to feel the subtle sensation as treatment continues, much like one begins to see and feel changes with regular exercise.
