Craniosacral Massage Therapy
What is Craniosacral Massage Therapy?
Craniosacral massage therapy is a form of bodywork that bolsters the functioning of the central nervous system, allowing the body to enter a deeply restful state and unwind from the inside out. By applying therapeutic touch to the cranial and sacral bones, the practitioner works to enhance flow of the cerebral spinal fluid, which promotes whole body functioning. Recipients of CST report a calm, restful state during which muscle tension, as well as emotional tension, subsides.
As a result of massage, clients often experience relief from chronic pain or recent injury, in addition to emotional release and healing of past and recent trauma. CST may be a helpful modality for anyone facing pain or injury, emotional or physical, but offers particular relief for clients experiencing headaches, jaw pain, back and pelvic pain, arthritis, circulation issues, digestive challenges, and anxiety.
