Cranial Sacral Therapy

Cranial Sacral Therapy (CST) is a gentle, hands-on technique used in chiropractic care to relieve tension in the body by manipulating the synarthrodial joints of the skull. The technique was developed by osteopathic physician Dr. John E. Upledger in the 1970s.

Cranial Sacral Therapy can help alleviate pain, tension, and discomfort associated with various musculoskeletal conditions, headaches, temporomandibular joint (TMJ) dysfunction, and stress-related disorders.

Principles of Cranial Sacral Therapy

Cranial Sacral Therapy is based on releasing tension in the body’s connective tissue through a gentle manual manipulation of the synarthrodial joints of the skull. By relieving tension and restoring alignment,  CST aims to enhance the body’s natural healing mechanisms.

How Cranial Sacral Therapy Is Performed

Assessment

A CST session typically begins with a thorough assessment of the client’s medical history, current symptoms, and areas of concern. The practitioner may palpate various points on the skull, spine, and sacrum to assess for areas of tension, restriction, or asymmetry.

Gentle Manipulation

During the treatment session, the practitioner uses light touch and gentle manipulation techniques to address restrictions and encourage the release of tension within the craniosacral system. Soft, subtle movements are applied to the skull, face, spine, and pelvis to help restore balance and promote optimal function.

Integration and Support

Cranial Sacral Therapy is often integrated with chiropractic adjustments, massage therapy, physical therapy, or complementary treatments to provide comprehensive care and support for the client’s overall health and well-being. The chiropractor may offer lifestyle recommendations, movement exercises, or stress management techniques to support the client’s healing process outside of the treatment session.

Applications in Chiropractic Care

Pain Relief and Stress Reduction

Cranial Sacral Therapy can help alleviate pain, tension, and discomfort associated with various musculoskeletal conditions, headaches, temporomandibular joint (TMJ) dysfunction, and stress-related disorders. It can also help with chronic pain. By releasing restrictions and restoring proper alignment and balance within the craniosacral system, CST can promote relaxation, reduce muscle tension, and improve overall function.

Enhanced Body Awareness

CST fosters a deeper sense of body awareness and mindfulness, allowing clients to connect with their inner experience, sensations, and areas of tension or discomfort. Through the gentle guidance of the practitioner, clients may develop a greater understanding of their body’s needs and learn to release patterns of holding or tension that contribute to pain and dysfunction.

Support for Neurological Conditions

Cranial Sacral Therapy may be beneficial for individuals with neurological conditions, such as concussions, traumatic brain injuries, stroke, and neurodevelopmental disorders. By optimizing cerebrospinal fluid dynamics, reducing inflammation, and supporting neural connectivity, CST can help improve neurological function, cognitive performance, and overall quality of life.

Summary

Cranial Sacral Therapy is a gentle chiropractic technique that involves manipulating the synarthrodial joints of the skull. The purpose is to address imbalances within the craniosacral system, promote relaxation, alleviate pain, and enhance overall health and well-being.
