Dr. John Upledger is celebrated for his development of Craniosacral Therapy. A self healing and self regulating system. A gentle non-invasive therapy that assesses, modifies, and corrects restrictions in the craniosacral system to improve wellness. The body has an inner wisdom that is powerful and organic, it truly knows how to heal. The treatment includes light hands on work, specifically tuning into the craniosacral rhythm for guidance and direction on how each client needs to be treated.
The CSR (craniosacral rhythm) is a physiological system that is responsible for the production, circulation and re-absorption of CSF (craniosacral fluid). CSR consists of, the ventricular system that produces CSF, the dural membranes that surround the brain and spinal cord, and the bony and fascial attachments of membranes. The Craniosacral System is treated through light touch, time, intention and energy.
CST is increasingly used as a preventive health measure for its ability to bolster resistance to disease, and is effective for a wide range of medical problems associated with pain and dysfunction, including:
Chronic Neck and Back Pain
Central Nervous System Disorders
Concussions and Traumatic Brain Injuries
Spinal Cord Injuries
Stress and Tension-Related Problems
Fibromyalgia and other Connective-Tissue Disorders
Temporomandibular Joint Syndrome (TMJ)
Neurovascular or Immune Disorders
Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder
How often should I receive CST? This is up to the client's body and how well it responds to the first treatment. Some clients may need several treatments to correct the dysfunction. Where ever you fall as a client, once the body reaches homeostasis, regular 4-6 week maintenance is then recommended.
What should the client expect? This is a fully clothed treatment (loose comfortable clothing is best) where the client is lying on the treatment table and encouraged to relax and focus on quiet breathwork. The practitioner will do a full evaluation of the craniosacral system before beginning the treatment; which includes checking the CSR for imbalances. During treatment, the practitioner will hold with gentle touch, on different parts of the Craniosacral system, encouraging and enhancing the CSR movement. Every client will respond differently depending on what needs to be released within the body. Some may experience REM (rapid eye movement), twitching, expansion of breath, laughing, crying, sneezing, coughing, increased digestion, hot or cold flashes, and/or a deep sense of relaxation. All of these sensations are completely normal and expected. They are signs that the autonomic nervous system is working.
