What is Craniosacral Therapy
Craniosacral therapy, although a complicated sounding name, is a gentle and powerful form of bodywork and healing. It is a hands on treatment that facilitates the body’s self corrective healing mechanism. It is highly effective, and getting more and more recognition for it’s benefits to many health problems from minor discomfort and imbalances to significant chronic pain and post traumatic stress. It is the treatment of choice for people who are physically and/or emotionally sensitive due to past hardship, trauma or illness, as well as during pregnancy.
During treatment, the practitioner listens with their hands to the tissues, and the subtle rhythms in the body. Restrictions and imbalances in the fascia are detected. From there they are released to regain vitality, mobility. balance, and health. This occurs non invasively with techniques including soft tissue and myofascial release, energy, and sometimes dialogue. This is not a form of mechanical manipulation where a technique is done to the person receiving it. Instead, the person and their tissues, fascia and nervous system direct the pace of the process, as the inner wisdom of the body directs the process for healing. The work is considered subtle or gentle but goes quite deep . It is nurturing to the fascia, musculature, and underlying structures. Relief and healing occurs naturally as the body finds stillness to reorganize and reset.
Craniosacral therapy (CST) may also facilitate the release of emotions. This does not always occur, but when it does, can profoundly accelerate the healing process. Emotional release is client initiated and directed, and occurs when the inner wisdom of the body is ready to release these imbalances for optimal healing. Often held emotions become stored in the body, dragging down the performance of the body and it’s systems. With release of physical or emotional restrictions, comes balance, calmness, vitality and peace. People are reporting pain relief after trying many other traditional methods. They additionally express improved health, focus, well being, and confidence.
Craniosacral therapy is beneficial for all ages. At Stillpoint Solutions, treatment has ranged from weeks old to the elderly, during infertility treatment and throughout pregnancy, and for chronic pain resulting from auto accidents, and from complex chronic conditions.
