Craniosacral therapy (CST) is a very gentle and hands on form of massage. It evaluates and enhances the functions of a physiological body system called the craniosacral system. The craniosacral system is made up of membranes and cerebrospinal fluid, these help to protect the brain and spinal cord. This massage does tons of good for your body like relieving migraines and headaches, sinus pain, fatigue, autism and many others. But what the actual massage consist of, you may ask. Well to answer that question it consists of the therapist gently touching the fluids and different membranes around the skull and spinal cord to relive tension and promote better health in the body.
This releases energy blocks and helps the bodies’ energy flow easier, thus creating a better feeling in the body. This massage can also help with post-traumatic stress disorder and help relieve symptoms of it. The massage mainly deals with the bones in the head, scrum, the underlying structure and the spinal column. This promotes the body to heal itself by releasing the trapped energy in the body.
It has also been known to relieve restlessness, ear aches and colic, as well as help you sleep better (and we all know that sleep is important to our body’s health). This massage is even safe for babies and small children, it can help to relieve the pain of ear aches and help them sleep better at night. This can even help with emotional issues; you’ll leave to room feeling like a huge weight has been lifted off your shoulders. This is a very light pressured massage, so don’t walk in expecting a lot of pressure because you will not get it.
