My wife has come home countless times from travelling all over the country for her marketing and advertising, and told me how she has sat on the plane and chatted with the person next to her, and when asked what her husband does and she says “he’s a Craniosacral Therapist”, the response is “a Cranio WHAAT?”. So for those who have, or are asking that question, here is an explanation (and DVD) as to what it is and how it works!
CranioSacral Therapy (CST) is a non-invasive therapy designed to listen to and support nerve pathways in the body to integrate and heal. There is a focus on working with the skeletal system and the cerebrospinal fluid that circulates through the cranium, spinal cord, and sacrum. When the bones and tissues are aligned well, our nervous system can relax and respond better to daily life. Our circulation increases which in turn increases hormone flow and cellular function.
Craniosacral Therapy has its origins in Osteopathy (for history of CST click here) and its application and methods have been refined over the past several decades by many prominent leaders in this field and recognized teaching institutions (worldwide).
Craniosacral Therapy (CST) is a gentle, hands-on method of evaluating and enhancing the Craniosacral System, the environment in which the brain and spinal cord function. Imbalance or dysfunction in the Craniosacral System can cause a wide range of sensory, motor or neurological impairments and dysfunction. Craniosacral Therapy has been found to be effective for an extensive variety of health issues (click here to see what they are), and some of these are listed further down the page, along with a variety of YouTube clips of an interview with the founder of CST in SA, Dr Alan Pelowski where he covers some topics and conditions in which it is used.
