What is CranioSacral Therapy (CST)
The gentle touch that treats the craniosacral system
The American osteopathic doctor John E. Upledger was the one who discovered and developed CranioSacral Therapy (CST) through a process of continuous research that lasted from 1975 until 1983 in the Michigan State University, where he worked as a clinical researcher and the Professor of Biocinetics.
CranioSacral Therapy (CST) is a hands-on therapy, where the touch is gentle, non-invasive and usually subtle. But do not be fooled! It is also a powerful therapy that affects the central nervous system to assist in improving function in the whole body. We are aiming to treat the craniosacral system. This is the term Dr Upledger originally coined to describe the structures that produce and enable a rhythm he observed while assisting in a spinal surgery.
Our therapist use a light touch that does not exceed 5 grams, or the weight of a nickle in order to release the CranioSacral’s system restrictions thus improving the central nervous system functionality.
By activating the body’s natural self-healing ability, CranioSacral Therapy is used more and more because of it’s ability to enhance resistance to disease, and it’s effective against a plethora of medical problems connected to pain and dysfunction. These problems include:
