CranioSacral Therapy (CST) is the kind of treatment that is beneficial for everyone of all ages and most every condition. By applying extremely light pressure (5 grams or the weight of a nickel), space is held, and the body heals and finds balance while feeling supported.
Clients remain fully clothed throughout the entire session, unless it is a blended treatment with other therapies that require clothes off.
Who benefits from CranioSacral Therapy?
Newborns & Infants often experience trauma during the birthing process and are in need of a little support to unwind all that tension of traveling through the birth canal. The shock of being on the outside of the womb can be traumatic as well. With a little support, newborns can feel less traumatized and more acclimated to their new surroundings.
Toddlers & Children respond extremely well and extremely fast to CST. We usually only need about 30 minutes a session to start, which is about the time they start getting antsy anyway. Often as children develop and grow, certain behaviors may present themselves that may raise concern to their parents or guardians. CranioSacral Therapy can help ease hyperactivity and calm busy minds, helping children to focus for longer periods of time.
Tweens, Teens & College Kids: Older kids and young adults experience incredible amounts of pressure these days. More than I ever remember dealing with in my generation. Receiving a gentle approach to bodywork without having to take any clothes off, can be an effective way for an adolescent to feel safe while helping them feel more grounded, intellectually and socially. Its also a great introduction to bodywork and massage.
Adults: For many reasons, namely stress, CranioSacral Therapy is a wonderful way to let go and unwind at the end of a long day. Many people notice a deep sense of relaxation and relief from their everyday grind as they get up from the table. Its a great way to learn how to go within yourself and establish a better relationship with your body so that you can work with, rather than against yourself, helping you be in union with your body.
Seniors: Many times, manipulative and physical bodywork can be too much for the fragile structure of an older body. CST can be a beautiful way to find balance and relaxation as you grow into your golden years.
