Craniosacral Therapy (CST)
CST can help restore and maintain physical, emotional and psychological health
Craniosacral Therapy (CST) is an exceptionally gentle yet powerful form of treatment, which enhances the functioning of the Central Nervous System and supports the body’s natural capacity for self-repair, regulation and healing. Working with the source of pain or discomfort and the whole body-mind system simultaneously, CST can help restore and maintain physical, emotional and psychological health.
The therapy has its roots in osteopathic medicine and was first developed in the early 20th century by the American osteopath, Dr William Sutherland. His work was later continued and expanded by another osteopath, Dr John Upledger who began to teach cranial work to non-osteopaths and over the last 30 years the therapy has evolved as a modality in its own right.
With its unique approach of gentle, non-intrusive, well-intentioned touch, physical manipulation is no longer required. As such, the therapy has earned a reputation as a safe and effective treatment for pregnant women, babies and children, as well as people of all ages and states of health.
