At Sojourns, we recommend CST as part of most of our treatment protocols for patients with chronic illness. We find that people respond faster and better to nutritional and other support when CST is part of their care.
Our Craniosacral therapy is done by physical therapists and body workers, each with extensive training and many years of experience doing the work. During the hour long CST session, the client remains clothed while lying in a relaxed position. The practitioner applies subtle pressure with fingertips to the head, the base of the spine and the joints.
Craniosacral Therapy is used at Sojourns to address many conditions including:
CST enhances the natural rhythmic movement of the cerebrospinal fluid that is initiated by the bones of the skull (cranium) and the base of the spine (sacrum). When this natural motion is restricted, the nerves are less able to keep information flowing freely in the body.
This can impact the body's entire central nervous system, as well the immune system and the muscles and organs. Common causes of restriction are emotional and psychological stresses, physical injuries, birth trauma and toxicity.
