What is Cranial Sacral Therapy (CST)?  

It's a gentle, soft touch, hands- on method that focuses on restoring and balancing the nervous system while releasing the effects of stress, injury and trauma.

  • Head Pain including skull/face injuries

  • Jaw pain/TMJ disorder (and pain from orthodontic/dental work)

  • Stress and Tension

  • Concussions and Traumatic Brain Injuries

How exactly does this work?

Balancing the membranes and cerebrospinal fluid that surround and protect the brain and spinal cord. Using a soft touch, the practitioner releases restrictions in the soft tissues around the central nervous system.

What to expect? This can be done completely dressed or incorporated with a massage. The 90min session will be incorporated into massage. Too much craniosacral can be a lot on your nervous system.
