Upledger CranioSacral Therapy

CranioSacral Therapy (CST) uses the presence and manipulation of the scientifically-based crainosacral pulse to evaluate and enhance the healthy functioning of the body. The craniosacral pulse exists as a rhythm within the body, which comes from the periodic movement of the cerebrospinal fluid. The skull, with its moveable bones, and spinal column contain the cerebrospinal fluid. One can feel the craniosacral pulse throughout the entire body, assuming no soft tissue restrictions interfere with palpation of the pulse. CST therapists use an extremely gentle touch to affect the symmetry, quality, amplitude, and rate of the crainosacral pulse. In so doing, the client can experience changes that positively affect various chronic neuromuscular and/or skeletal disorders, including elimination of soft tissue restrictions.
