Craniosacral Therapy at Aldergrove Physiotherapy
Many adults and children find Cranial Sacral Therapy (CST) provides results no other therapy ever has. Thought to improve the efficiency of your body’s biological processes, Craniosacral Therapy boosts self-regulation and self-healing.
Using a light touch on fluids and membranes in and around your nervous system, CST relieves tension. This simple yet exacting touch promotes a feeling of well-being, eliminates pain, and boosts general health and immunity. Craniosacral Therapy works to ease pain and tension through a series of gentle manipulations of the skull harmonized to your central nervous system’s natural rhythm.
Which Conditions are Helped by Craniosacral Therapy (CST)?
Your physiotherapist at Aldergrove Physiotherapy will complete a comprehensive assessment of your condition(s) before recommending Craniosacral Therapy (CST). You may be a candidate for this specialized therapy if you are coping with:
- Chronic pain
- Migraine headaches
- Multiple sclerosis
- Fascial adhesions
- Post-concussion syndrome
- Complex regional pain syndrome
- A neurodegenerative disease
- Temporo-mandibular joint (TMJ) syndrome
- Speech impairment
Your physiotherapist gently places their hands in specific patterns to assist your body in releasing tension in connective tissues, or “fascia.” Fascia forms a body-wide network, connecting your body on all levels.
What to Expect from Craniosacral Therapy (CST) Sessions
You’ll find that CST is like a massage therapy session, except you keep your clothes on, and the touch pressure is much lighter. The session starts with a discussion with your physiotherapist to identify trouble areas and any changes since your last session.
The physiotherapist uses very gentle pressure to assess disruptions and/or restrictions in your fascia. This type of light touch and fascial release treatment may help your muscles and/or organs naturally release tension and relieve stress to improve function. Patients often say they feel a deep sense of relaxation. People report pleasant sensations like warmth, tingling, a letting go feeling, relaxation, or a pressure release throughout their body.
