CranioSacral Therapy (CST)

Your craniosacral system heavily influences the central nervous system which is comprised of the brain and spinal cord. Your body’s ability to function properly is reliant on these components operating efficiently.

Over time our body endures compounding stress and tension from every-day life which causes distortions to form around these vital components and restrictions develop. As a result, your central nervous systems function will be greatly reduced and subsequently impact all of the other systems it interacts with.

Craniosacral therapy addresses and alleviates these dysfunctions to restore whole-body health and performance. This gentle approach generally applies a touch no greater than 5 grams (about the weight of a nickel) to remove trauma and bring the system back into its natural blueprint of health.

CST compliments the body’s natural healing systems and is increasingly being used for an array of issues:

  •       Migraine Headaches
  •       Chronic Neck and Back Pain
  •       Motor-Coordination Impairments
  •       Colic
  •       Autism
  •       Central Nervous System Disorders
  •       Orthopedic Problems
  •       Concussions and Traumatic Brain Injuries
  •       Alzheimer’s Disease and Dementia
  •       Spinal Cord Injuries
  •       Scoliosis
  •       Infantile Disorders
  •       Learning Disabilities
  •       Chronic Fatigue
  •       Emotional Difficulties
  •       Stress and Tension-Related Problems
  •       Fibromyalgia and other Connective-Tissue Disorders
  •       Temporomandibular Joint Syndrome (TMJ)
  •       Neurovascular or Immune Disorders
  •       Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder
  •       Post-Surgical Dysfunction

Myofascial Release (MFR)

This is a safe and very effective hands-on technique that involves applying gentle sustained pressure into the Myofascial connective tissue restrictions to eliminate pain and restore motion.

Trauma, inflammatory responses, and/or surgical procedures create Myofascial restrictions that can produce tensile pressures of approximately 2,000 pounds per square inch on pain sensitive structures that do not show up in many of the standard tests (x-rays, myelograms, CAT scans, electromyography, etc.).

The use of Myofascial Release allows us to look at each patient as a unique individual. Our one-on-one therapy sessions are hands-on treatments during which our therapists use a multitude of Myofascial Release techniques and movement therapy. We promote independence through education in proper body mechanics and movement, self treatment instruction, enhancement of strength, improved flexibility, and postural and movement awareness.

Each Myofascial Release Treatment session is performed directly on skin without oils, creams or machinery. This enables the therapist to accurately detect fascial restrictions and apply the appropriate amount of sustained pressure to facilitate release of the fascia.
