Cranial-Sacral Therapy (CST) is a gentle, hands-on, non-invasive treatment that releases tensions deep in the body to relieve pain and dysfunction. It can be of benefit to people with acute physical problems like headaches and back, neck and shoulder pain, or long-standing and persistent chronic problems.
It may be used as a stand-alone treatment but is a great complement to the other therapies used at the BackCare Clinic, Theraflex and Muscle Energy Techniques (MET).
The name suggests it could just be a treatment for the head, and indeed it is great when used to treat complaints such as headaches, neck pain and TMJ (jaw) problems. However, Cranial-sacral Therapy is a type of treatment rather than where you treat and can be used successfully on any part of the body. Often helping to resolve issues that are not helped by other means.
Many people come to enjoy the gentle nature of Cranial-Sacral Therapy for ongoing support in their busy lives. Helping to reduce stress and build their underlying energy levels. Some people come simply as a chance to relax.
It is indeed a the most gentle and relaxing treatment but do not be fooled! It is a powerful therapy.
