Conditions treated by CST

By complementing the body’s natural healing processes, craniosacral therapy is increasingly used as a preventative health measure for its ability to bolster resistance to disease, and is effective for a wide range of medical problems associated with pain and dysfunction.

CranioSacral Therapy (CST) is a gentle, light-touch method of evaluating and enhancing the craniosacral system, the environment in which the brain and spinal cord function. An imbalance or dysfunction in the craniosacral system can cause sensory, motor or neurological disabilities.

These problems may include:

Musculo-Skeletal

  • Chronic Pain
  • Whiplash
  • Head Injuries
  • Accidents
  • Post-surgery
  • Scoliosis
  • Fibromyalgia
  • Frozen Shoulder

Mind and Emotions

  • Anxiety
  • Stress
  • Depression
  • Irritability
  • Attention Deficit Disorder
  • Post-Traumatic Stress

Illnesses and Other Conditions

  • Headaches
  • Migraines
  • Shock
  • Ear Infections
  • Chronic Sinusitis
  • Squints
  • TMJ (jaw) problems
  • Brain and Spinal Cord Dysfunction
  • Chronic Fatigue Syndrome

Craniosacral therapy is client-led, that is, CST encourages your body to tell its own story rather than meeting presenting symptoms with a pre-ordained treatment regimen. Since it is your body (rather than your mind) that sets the priorities for healing, you may find that the condition for which you came for treatment is not what improves first. Therefore, it may be necessary to consider having a series of treatments to gain the full benefit of CST and its cumulative effects.
