"CranioSacral Therapy (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. Using a soft touch generally no greater than 5 grams, or about the weight of a nickel, practitioners release restrictions in the craniosacral system, which has been shown to improve the functioning of the central nervous system, as well as many other systems of the body, such as digestive, musculoskeletal, respiratory, circulatory, and more. CST has also been shown to help with the physical components related to such somatic conditions as Post Traumatic Stress, depression and anxiety." https://www.upledger.com/therapies/index.php
CranioSacral Therapy is a hands-on manual therapy that works with central nervous system, cranial bones, sacrum, cerebrospinal fluid, fascia, and natural energy flow of the body. With minimal pressure, a gentle manipulation of the craniosacral system and fascial tissue create a profound change in the body.
