What is CranioSacral Therapy (CST)
CranioSacral Therapy is a gentle, non-invasive modality that seeks to find and treat restrictions throughout the body systems. Restrictions within the CranioSacral system can lead to tension patterns, restrictions or affect the functioning of all bodily systems including the musculoskeletal, endocrine, cardio-respiratory, gastrointestinal, lymphatic, immune and reproductive systems.
How does CST work?
Through various assessment tools, your CranioSacral Therapist can globally assess your body and CranioSacral system and find the “primary” restrictions or “root causes” of issues. Over time our body may compensate around particular restrictions in order to keep us functioning well. When the body can no longer compensate or the restrictions are so great that it overcomes the body’s compensatory strategies, symptoms occur.
CranioSacral Therapy is a very gentle and effective treatment for a variety of issues experienced by children in their infant, toddler and childhood years. These may be issues such as tongue-tie, sensory and auditory processing issues and general development.
CranioSacral Therapy is a very effective treatment for adults and is aimed at treating both the symptoms and the root cause of problems from a global perspective. This approach offers an opportunity for long-term change and resolution of complex issues.
A natural progression of CranioSacral Therapy is a process called SomatoEmotional ® Release (SER). At times of high stress or emotional sensitivity the body may retain the imprint of emotion in the tissues of the body. SomatoEmotional Release is a process of assisting the body in integrating these emotions. Your CranioSacral Therapist may incorporate tools such as therapeutic imagery and dialogue to assist in this process.
We offer remedial massage in the following durations:
Best suited for those who have an on-going musculoskeletal issue and would like focus on one main area of concern. It is recommended as a follow up session between your monthly sessions to accelerate results particularly during the early stages of your treatment plan.
During a 60-minute session, you can expect to receive focus towards two main areas of concern directed by your Remedial Massage Therapist and best suited to your individual treatment plan. It is recommended as a follow up session rather than an initial appointment.
Best suited for an initial appointment allowing time to perform range of motion and muscle tests to dictate a treatment plan moving forward. As a follow up session you can expect to receive focus towards three main areas of concern or more depending on your treatment plan.
