What is Craniosacral Therapy?
Craniosacral therapy (CST) is a gentle, non-invasive form of massage which uses a light touch to examine membranes and movement of the fluids in and around the central nervous system. This is a massage that addresses the bones and muscles of the head, spinal column, and sacrum to help relieve tension while promoting a feeling of well-being by eliminating pain and boosting health and immunity. CST stems from osteopathy, which is an approach that emphasizes the role of the musculoskeletal system in health and disease.
