CranioSacral Therapy (CST) is a light-touch therapy that can create dramatic improvements in your life. It releases tensions deep in the body to relieve pain and dysfunction and improve whole-body health and performance.
CranioSacral Therapy releases tensions that create blockages in the body, to allow the entire body to relax and self-correct. Using a gentle touch (about the weight of a nickel) the practitioner evaluates your internal environment by feeling for the craniosacral rhythm. This rhythm is created by the cerebrospinal fluid moving in and around the brain and spinal cord, but can be felt anywhere on the body. By carefully listening with the hands to locate areas of weak flow or tissue motion, the practitioner can trace those areas of weakness through the body to the original source of restriction or dysfunction.
Once the restrictions are identified, delicate manual techniques are then used to release the problem areas and allow your body’s own self-correcting mechanisms to work more effectively.
CranioSacral Therapy improves your body’s ability to take better care of you. It helps relieve pain, illness and dysfunction including:
- Migraines and other headaches, TMJ Syndrome
- Chronic neck and back pain, Musculoskeletal pain
- Stress and stress induced illnesses such as Chronic Fatigue or Fibromyalgia
- And much, much more

REIKI AND HEALING TOUCH
Reiki and Healing Touch are very relaxing and comforting modalities that facilitate healing within the body, mind and spirit. They assist in accelerating the body’s natural healing ability and open both the mind and spirit to the causes of disharmony or dis-ease within the body. They help loosen blocked energy and allow the body to come back into the balance it so desires. They assist the body in cleansing itself of toxins and work in conjunction with and as an adjunct to medical and non-medical treatments and therapies.
A Healing Touch or Reiki session brings about deep relaxation, feelings of warmth, well-being and comfort. If you are uncertain about which modality to try first, either Healing Touch or Reiki is a good start.
