What is craniosacral therapy?
Craniosacral therapy involves applying gentle pressure and manipulation to the joints in the skull, spine, and parts of the pelvis.
CST is a non-aggressive, hands-on therapy that intent to intensify the body’s own healing capabilities.
According to the Upledger Institute, CST uses a touch of under 5 grams to “release restrictions in the craniosacral system to improve the functioning of the central nervous system.”
This light touch is said to affect the pressure and circulation of cerebrospinal fluid, which is the fluid around the brain and spinal cord. This process is thought to relieve pain and dysfunction.
Practitioners claim that CST can be carried out as a standalone treatment or used in conjunction with medical or other alternative therapies.
Craniosacral therapy can help to improve the functioning of the nervous system that enhances the body’s own healing capabilities, relieving pain and improving mobility.
CST has been used to treat a variety of conditions, both physical and psychological, Such As:
- Alzheimer’s disease
