Craniosacral Therapy

What is Craniosacral Therapy?

Craniosacral Therapy (CST) is a totally non-invasive therapy that is suitable for everyone, including newborn babies.

The ‘cranio’ refers to the top of the spine and the ‘sacral’ refers to the lower end of the spine or sacrum. CST can be applied to all parts of the body and works with the whole person; body, mind and spirit.

CST may be used for acute physical problems such as aches and pains throughout the body, or for emotional problems, such as stress.

A wide variety of healthcare professionals from osteopaths, doctors, etc. to CranioSacral Therapists use CST for its positive effect on so many body functions.

Who can benefit and how?

If we take teenagers for example, who are on an emotional rollercoaster with hormones all over the place, this can often be reflected in their skin with spots and acne. CST can really aid in calming their emotions down. (read more)

    1. Hi Rachel, thanks for your question.

      I’ve found CranioSacral Therapy personally very effective for a lot of different conditions though I am not sure if they have enough research evidence to meet the ASA Standards to advertise they are effective in treating migraines.

      As chiropractors we are allowed to say we are effective in treating migraines. I personally have found that to help people and myself with migraines effectively takes a very holistic approach where we help to release physical tension in the joints and soft tissues around the neck and head, work to optimise the nervous system, remove toxins and optimise the diet.

      Hope that helps?
