CranioSacral Therapy

Using a soft touch generally no greater than 5 grams, or about the weight of a nickel, practitioners release restrictions in the craniosacral system to 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  

-Central Nervous System Disorders    

-Learning Disabilities

-Chronic Fatigue

-Emotional Difficulties

-Stress and Tension Related Problems

-Fibromyalgia and other Connective Tissue Disorders

-Temporomandibular Joint Syndrome (TMJ)

-Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder

-Post-Surgical Dysfunction

CranioSacral Therapy (CST) was pioneered and developed by osteopathic physician John E. Upledger following extensive scientific studies from 1975 to 1983 at Michigan State University, where he served as a clinical researcher and Professor of Biomechanics.


CST is a gentle, hands-on method of evaluating and enhancing the functioning of a physiological body system called the craniosacral system - comprised of the membranes and cerebrospinal fluid that surround and protect the brain and spinal cord.
