What is Cranio Sacral Therapy (CST)?
CST is a light-touch, hands-on therapy that works with the Central Nervous System and it’s protective tissues to relieve tensions, release trauma, and to enhance and restore proper function in the body. This delicate therapy may be used to work with painful or restricted areas anywhere in the body.
Practitioners use very gentle hands-on techniques and apply specialized training in anatomy and physiology to work with soft tissues, the skeletal system and the fluids that protect and nourish your brain and spinal cord.
