What is Craniosacral Therapy?

The brain and spinal cord are the core of the central nervous system. Few structures have as much influence over the body's ability to function properly. The craniosacral system is the critical support system made up of membranes and fluid that surround, protect and nourish them.

Every day your body endures stresses and strains that it must compensate for. These changes cause body tissues to tighten and distort the craniosacral system. This can cause tension and restrictions around the brain and spinal cord affecting the health of the central nervous system, which affects every organ in the body.

The CST practitioner uses a light touch to evaluate the craniosacral system by gently feeling various locations of the body to test for ease of motion and what is called the cranial rhythm of the fluid pulsing around the brain and spinal cord, and to release restrictions in any surrounding tissues. By normalizing the cranial rhythm and the environment around the brain and spinal cord, it enhances the body's ability to self-correct. 

Biodynamic Craniosacral Therapy

Biodynamic Craniosacral Therapy (BCST) adds to traditional CST and its focus on the cranial rhythm to include deeper rhythms within the body. It introduces the concept that the human system is more than bones, fluid and tissue. This expands the therapeutic focus throughout the entire body.
