craniosacral therapy + neural manipulation
CST and NM are gentle, hands-on methods of evaluating and enhancing the functioning of the craniosacral system - comprised of the membranes and cerebrospinal fluid that surround and protect the brain and spinal cord - and the nervous system.
CST is a gentle, hands-on method of evaluating and enhancing the functioning of a physiological body system called the craniosacral system - comprised of the membranes and cerebrospinal fluid that surround and protect the brain and spinal cord. Using a soft touch, I release restrictions in the craniosacral system to improve the functioning of the central nervous system.
By complementing the body’s natural healing process, CST 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, including: migraines & headaches, stress and tension related disorders, motor-coordination impairments, infant and childhood disorders, central nervous system disorders, brain and spinal cord injuries, chronic fatigue, fibromyalgia, TMJ syndrome, scoliosis, learning disabilities, ADD/ADHD, post-traumatic stress disorder and many more.
I also have specialized training with CST in pregnant mama's and infants.
You can choose to enjoy a full 30 or 60 minute CST treatment or it be can be integrated in each bodywork session when appropriate.
neural (nerve) manipulation
A nerve only functions correctly when it is able to move freely within its surrounding structures. This is a light touch therapy that identifies and releases local nerve restrictions while at the same time examines the effect these local fixations have on the rest of the body. Releasing the restricted nerve may resolve the more comprehensive (global) dysfunctional patterns within the body. This is incorporated in each bodywork session when appropriate.
