Craniosacral therapy (CST) is a gentle, light and non-invasive hands-on healing technique that releases stress and tensions deep in the body. It relieves pain and dysfunction, increases energy, and improves whole body, mind and spirit health and performance as it assists the body’s natural healing processes.
CST therapists gently release the craniosacral system. This includes the soft tissue of the head (cranium) down the spine to the sacral area (its tail end) and the pelvis. It focuses on the movement of the cerebrospinal fluid, which has both a nutritive and protective effect on the central nervous system.
During a treatment, you lay on a massage table and our CST therapist, Nicole Tobler, works through light clothing. It’s a very gentle and deeply relaxing procedure, which leaves you feeling much lighter and whole in your wellbeing.
The CST therapist at our West End centre in Brisbane, Nicole Tobler, may combine other therapies in a craniosacral session, such as myofascial release and some light massage techniques.
CST therapy is useful for:
- migraines and headaches
- chronic neck and back pain
- stress and tension-related problems
- emotional difficulties
- temporomandibular joint dysfunction
- many other conditions.
