Craniosacral therapy (CST) is a gentle, hands-on approach, which addresses the nervous system, joints and soft tissues by palpating subtle rhythmical motions in the body. The focus is on the head and spine, but CST can be applied anywhere on the body.  Craniosacral dysfunctions (distortions in tissues, especially in the head and spine) can arise from injuries, such as falls or blows to the head.  Scar tissue from surgeries or inflammation/infection also can affect mobility of tissues. Regardless of the cause, the result of disease or injury is limited motion (like a “tethering” or strain) of nervous tissue. CST helps to release these tissue tensions, and allows the body to return to a state of balance and ease.
