Despite it’s name, CranioSacral Therapy (or CST) can treat far more than the cranium and the sacrum. At its most basic, CST helps to even out the rhythmic pulse of the craniosacral fluid (circulating throughout the brain and spinal cord), using gentle touch. This treatment will restore balance and reduce pain. Specific bones of the face and cranium may be gently touched in order to ensure free flow of energy. This style of treatment works well for:
- History of head and neck injuries
- Tooth and jaw pain
- Shoulder pain
- Hip or sacrum pain
- Knee pain
SomatoEmotnional release (or SER) is a continuation of CST training. It allows the practitioner to release tissues of the body that are holding energy in any form including heat, tension, or even emotions.
