The Craniosacral Rhythm
Life is rhythm and movement. The heart contracts and expands to circulate blood, as the lungs do for breath. Day has a rhythm that turns into night, and the seasons rhythmically turn year after year from summer to winter. Without the regularity and fluidity of these rhythms, the body and mind experience disturbance, imbalance, and ultimately, dis-ease.
The CST Pump
The CranioSacral system is also a rhythm pump, like the heart and lungs. The CS system spans between two regions of bone, the cranium (consisting of the skull, face and mouth bones) and the sacrum. Connecting these two regions are membranes: dura mater, arachnoid membrane and pia mater. These tissues create a semi-closed hydraulic pump system that bathes the spinal cord and brain in cerebrospinal fluid which, like blood, provides vital nourishment and detoxification. When the CS system is healthy, it has a rhythm that properly balances and energizes the functioning of the brain, spinal cord and nervous system.

Daily Nervous System Balance
Since this vital system influences the performance of the brain and spinal cord, any imbalance or restriction in it can potentially cause or exacerbate many or neurological neuromuscular impediments. These impediments may begin during developmental phases of life, or may be a result of trauma or accumulated stress. The ultimate effect may be a loss of normal daily functioning, and the full enjoyment of life.
Alleviate Pain and Tension
As a gentle method of detection and correction, CST encourages your own natural healing mechanisms. CST detects imbalances in the bones and membranes with a touch of no more than 5 grams, the weight of a small coin. The therapist releases and resolves the restrictions in these tissues with delicate manual techniques. You will benefit from the deep sense of harmony and tranquility that this work provides. CST is good for chronic pain, allergies, low energy, digestive disturbances, fibromyalgia, headaches, migraines, TMJ, and other chronic conditions and symptoms. Free of restrictions, you and your body will feel lighter, happier, stronger, and able to return to higher levels of performance.
