"CranioSacral Therapy (CST) is a gentle, hands-on method of evaluating and enhancing the function of a physiological body system called the CranioSacral system. It is comprised of the membranes and cerebrospinal fluid that surround and protect the brain and spinal cord. The CST practitioner follows the rhythms within the body with a light touch no greater than 5 grams. With this gentle touch, CST aids your body to release restrictions and improve the flow of cerebrospinal fluid, increase the function of the central nervous system and release compensation in the facial systems. CST is also beneficial in releasing cell memory, which can assist the healing of the emotional body, birthing patterns, past traumas and accidents. It is deeply relaxing and a very powerful modality that assists the body's natural healing process."
