What is CranioSacral Therapy?
CranioSacral Therapy (CST) is a gentle, hands-on method of evaluating and enhancing the function 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. CST was developed by osteopathic physician John E. Upledger, D.O., O.M.M., in the 1970s. It is based on the theories of William Sutherland, D.O. (an osteopath from the early 1900s); Dr. Upledger's research at Michigan State University (1975-83), and extensive clinical application.
CranioSacral Therapy enhances the body's natural healing processes and has been effective for a wide range of medical problems associated with pain and dysfunction, including:
Migraine Headaches, Traumatic Brain and Spinal Cord Injuries, Chronic Neck and Back Pain, Emotional Difficulties, Motor-Coordination Impairments, Stress and Tension-Related Problems, Central Nervous System Disorders, Temporomandibular Joint Syndrome (TMJ), Orthopaedic Problems, Chronic Fatigue, Scoliosis, Neurovascular or Immune Disorders, Infantile Disorders, Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder, Colic, Post-Surgical Dysfunction, Autism, Learning Disabilities, Fibromyalgia and other Connective-Tissue Disorders.
