Craniosacral Therapy

CST improves brain health as well as the health of the whole nervous system.

Craniosacral work focuses on the 22 bones that make up the human skull (cranium), spine and cross (sacrum), the brain, central nervous system (CNS), cerebrospinal fluid (liquor cerebrospinalis), membrane system and spinal column.

The treatment lasts from 40 to 60 minutes. It is recommended for babies, children and adults to harmonize and maintain complete health. Each treatment is based on the uniqueness of movements of the therapist and body of the client. The treatment is performed on a therapeutic table or matting, directly over the skin, without the use of oil, cream, balms or mechanical appliances.

The therapist carefully listens to the movement of liquor in the cranial sacral system. The movement of liquors creates different waves within the system. While the therapist is listening to these internal waves in peace, the client's system starts to reach its own internal resources, something like finding the keys of the previously locked door. Liquor, while protecting the brain and spinal cord, carries intelligence and potency (strength) that interfere with other body fluids through the dural membranes. Therapists can also focus on restoring the craniosacral system to the centerline of the body called the central line, focusing on optimal positioning, fluid motion and energy (piezolectic effect and chi) of these parts of the craniosacral system.

CST builds brain and nervous system health and is therefore effective in the prevention of chronic conditions, including aging, stamina, dryness, memory loss, inflammation and immune disbalance. CST finds even those injuries that have happened long ago, and for which we do not even know that they are still affecting us. Traumas at birth will follow us throughout our lives unless we discover and heal them.

Our internal intelligence, when supported, shows the damage one by one by importance, not to burden the system, but to gradually strengthen it. We do not have to remember and recall the trauma we experienced in order to heal the derived disbalance.

CST has proven to be successful in treating the following conditions:

  • Migraines and headaches

  • Chronic pain in the neck and back

  • Stress and tension

  • Problems with coordination in movement

  • Injuries to the brain and spinal cord

  • Chronic depressive conditions

  • Fibromyalgia

  • TMJ

  • Scoliosis

  • Problems of the central nervous system

  • Learning difficulties

  • ADD / ADHD (problem of attention and concentration)

  • Autism

  • Post-surgical conditions

  • Asthma

  • Spasm
