Cranial Sacral

Cranial Sacral Therapy (CST) works to restore balance throughout the body by directly accessing the central nervous system and related connective tissue. CST is a very gentle, hands-on manipulation that allows the therapist to access the core nervous system in an unobtrusive manner. Inside the lining of the head is a membrane system, called the dural membrane system (also called the Cranio Sacral System), which extends downward into the lining of the spinal cord and connects to the sacrum. Hence, the name “cranial” for cranium and “sacral” for sacrum. Inside the lining of this membrane system, flows the cerebral spinal fluid. The motion of this fluid can be felt anywhere on the body.
