CranioSacral Therapy (CST) is a light touch manual technique, which enhances the body’s natural healing processes. Osteopath, John E. Upledger, developed this intuitive guided therapy. Generally using about five grams of pressure or about the weight of a nickel, the body is evaluated and gently manipulated to help the body release any restrictions and promote the normal rhythm and flow of the musculoskeletal and nervous systems. The length of time and the number of sessions needed is extremely variable and depends on, among other factors, the complex layers of the injury or trauma that may mask the original cause of the problem as well as the body’s defense mechanisms. This gentle approach follows the body’s lead to uncover the source of pain or dysfunction that can open the path to wellness.
