CranioSacral Therapy (CST) works with the membranes and cerebrospinal fluid that protects the brain and the spinal cord. By using a light touch, the rhythm of the system can be monitored throughout the animal’s body. By assessing the quality of the rhythm, it helps identify and locate any stress or energy obstruction in the body. By the use of gentle pressure, restrictions are released, opening up the energy flow and allowing the body to begin to self-heal. Other techniques that are part of this therapy help to ease pain and inflammation and release fascia (connective tissue) restrictions.
The knowledge of the Chinese medicine meridian system (energetic pathways throughout the body) increases the effectiveness of CST. Each meridian is connected to a specific organ or a specific region within the body. Evaluating the cranial rhythm and the subtle energies of the meridians and their points assist in locating blocks or imbalances. These gentle touch techniques help to release energetic restrictions in the physical, mental, emotional and spiritual levels of the body.
CST improves the functioning of the central nervous system and in combination with the meridian flow principles, supports the opening up of the energy pathways to flow more easily and harmoniously. This therapy is very effective for preventative health care and for a wide range of medical conditions.
