CranioSacral Therapy uses a very light touch on the body to detect the rhythm and restrictions of the cerebrospinal fluid as it flows through the craniosacral system, from the skull down the spine. A restriction in one part of the craniosacral system can affect the entire system, so treatment may involve working at a point distant from the symptom. By assisting the hydraulic forces in the craniosacral system and, in turn, improving central nervous system functioning it facilitates the body’s innate, self-healing mechanisms.
A normally functioning craniosacral system is essential to a healthy central nervous system. Because the nervous system affects all other body systems, working on the craniosacral system can influence all parts of the body.
During the session you will probably notice a sense of deep relaxation. With subsequent treatments this release of tension often extends into everyday life. The work can address physical aches and pains, chronic disease, emotional or psychological disturbances, or simply help to develop well-being, health and vitality.
Sometimes in a Kinesiology balance or in Spiritual Response Therapy CranioSacral may be required and this would be incorporated within your session.
I attended the CST Foundation course in 2007 in Perth, Scotland.
