Cranial Sacral Therapy (CST) often manages what no other therapy does for both adults and children. By improving the efficiency of the body’s biological processes, CST boosts self-regulation and healing processes. 

CST uses a light touch on membranes and fluids in and around your central nervous system to relieve tension. This simple yet exacting touch promotes a feeling of well-being, eliminates pain, and boosts general health and immunity. Craniosacral Therapy eases tension and pain with gentle skull manipulations that harmonize your central nervous system’s natural rhythm.

Which Conditions are Helped by Craniosacral Therapy (CST)?

Your physiotherapist at Mt. Lehman Physiotherapy will complete a comprehensive assessment of your condition(s) before recommending Craniosacral Therapy (CST). You may be a candidate for this specialized therapy if you are coping with:

  • Chronic pain
  • Migraine headaches
  • Fibromyalgia
  • Multiple sclerosis
  • Stroke
  • Fascial adhesions
  • Post-concussion syndrome
  • Complex regional pain syndrome
  • Neuralgia
  • A neurodegenerative disease
  • Temporo-mandibular joint (TMJ) syndrome
  • Epilepsy
  • Speech impairment

Your physiotherapist puts their hands gently on your skull in specific patterns to assist the release of tension in connective tissues, or “fascia.” This fascia forms a network throughout your body, connecting on all levels.

What to Expect from Craniosacral Therapy (CST) Sessions

You stay fully clothed during CST, and all the pressure is very gentle. Each session starts with a short discussion with your physiotherapist identifying problem areas and changes since your last session.

With very gentle pressure, your physiotherapist can assess disruptions and/or restrictions in your fascia. This type of light touch and fascial release treatment may help your muscles and/or organs naturally release tension and relieve stress to improve function. Patients often say they feel a deep sense of relaxation. People report pleasant sensations like warmth, tingling, a letting go feeling, relaxation, or a pressure release throughout their body.
