Craniosacral Therapy Near Me
A gentle, hands-on technique that focuses on the craniosacral system. This system consists of membranes and cerebrospinal fluid that surround and protect the brain and spinal cord, flowing throughout this body system to regulate all aspects of nervous activity.
This treatment can effectively relieve pain, headaches and many other conditions. It’s an ideal choice for individuals suffering from chronic headaches, insomnia, neck/back pain, joint/muscle discomfort, stress/anxiety issues, fatigue or other health problems.
Children can benefit greatly from this treatment. It addresses various challenges like tongue tie, difficulty sucking on something, colic, gas and constipation, torticollis, hyper/hypotonia, teething problems and ear infections.
CST works by monitoring and enhancing the rhythm of the craniosacral system, identifying any restrictions in this cycle and helping it release through the bones in the skull (including face/mouth/spine) as well as pelvis. Once that restriction is removed, cerebrospinal fluid can return to its natural rhythm which in turn encourages natural healing within the body.
CST practitioners then gently move your body with light touch to restore the flow of cerebrospinal fluid within your system and reset its functions. You will lie face upwards on a massage table as your therapist manipulates and massages various areas of your body with light pressure.
Due to the potential for some sensitivity or discomfort during your session, it’s best to wear loose-fitting clothing and comfortable footwear. Furthermore, some insurance companies cover craniosacral therapy; so be sure to double check with your health insurer before scheduling an appointment.
