CST, sometimes called craniosacral therapy, is one of the gentlest forms of body work. This holistic therapy is so gentle it can be used to treat newborn infants. It is also an ideal alternative medicine treatment for the elderly. The brain and spinal cord are bathed in a fluid called cerebrospinal fluid. The fluid and the dura mater that contain it form the craniosacral system. This system has its own rhythm that is a result of the fluid being pumped around the spinal cord and brain.
The craniosacral rhythm is different from your heartbeat or breathing. The therapist is able to feel the rhythm of the craniosacral system by placing his or her hands lightly on various areas of your body. The feet and ankles, thighs, hips, rib cage, shoulders and head are all the key areas where your therapist will feel your rhythm. By checking these various points, your therapist can determine where your rhythm is irregular or weak.
The therapist then uses a light touch, no greater than the weight of a nickel, to release restrictions in the fascia around the craniosacral system.
In your skull there are sutures. We’re taught that as you become an adult, the bones in your skull fuse. In reality they are still moveable almost like joints. The therapist gently manipulates these bones to improve the flow of craniosacral fluids. Craniosacral therapy is not just used to treat neurological disorders. It can be used to treat:
- chronic pain
- stress temporomandibular joint dysfunction (TMJ)
- central nervous disorders
- chronic fatigue
