CranioSacral Therapy (CST) is a form of bodywork or alternative therapy that uses gentle touch to palpate the synarthrodial joints of the cranium. This hands-on method evaluates and enhances the functioning of a physiological body system to release restrictions in the craniosacral system and 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:

  • Migraine Headaches
    Chronic Neck and Back Pain
    Motor-Coordination Impairments
    Colic

    Neurovascular or Immune Disorders
