Craniosacral Therapy

As a practitioner of craniosacral therapy (CST), I will delicately evaluate and enhance the functioning of your physiological body system called the craniosacral system. This system is made up of the membranes and cerebrospinal fluid that surround and protect your brain and spinal cord. CST has deep roots in osteopathic medicine. Using a soft touch, restrictions are gently released to support your body's innate healing process. This protects you from disease, dysfunction, or distress in your central nervous system.

CST is used as a complement to your body's natural healing processes. Your body has the inner wisdom to heal, but sometimes it needs a bit of assistance. Some of the medical problems that CST is effective for include:

  • Migraine headaches
  • Chronic head and back¬†pain
  • Motor-coordination impairments
  • Colic
  • Autism
  • Central nervous system disorders
  • Orthopedic problems
  • Spinal cord injuries
  • Alzheimer's disease and dementia
  • Concussions and traumatic brain injuries
  • Learning disabilities
  • Chronic fatigue
  • Emotional difficulties
  • Stress and tension-related problems
  • Fibromyalgia
  • Temporomandibular joint syndrome
  • Neurovascular or immune disorders
  • Post-traumatic stress disorder
  • Post-surgical dysfunction

I may also incorporate SomatoEmotional Release (SER) into your care. SER expands on the principles of CST the help rid the mind and body of the residual effects of trauma. SER will help you:

  • Locate and release energy cysts
  • Release suppressed emotions that may be inhibiting complete structural releases
  • Refine listening and comprehension skills
  • Improve palpation and whole-body evaluation skills
