CranioSacral Therapy (CST):
This form of treatment is my specialty. CST is very gentle and done fully clothed. CST was pioneered and developed by osteopathic physician John E. Upledger following extensive scientific studies from 1975 to 1983 at Michigan State University, where he served as a clinical researcher and Professor of Biomechanics.
CST is a gentle, hands-on method of evaluating and enhancing the functioning of a physiological body system called the craniosacral system – comprised of the membranes and cerebrospinal fluid that surround and protect the brain and spinal cord. CST releases restrictions in the craniosacral system to improve the functioning of the central nervous system.
By complementing the body’s natural healing processes, CST is increasingly used as a preventive health measure for its ability to bolster resistance to disease, and is effective for a wide range of medical problems associated with pain and dysfunction, including the following:
Chronic Neck and Back Pain
Central Nervous System Disorders
Brain and Spinal Cord Injuries
Stress and Tension-Related Problems
Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder
To see with my hands
