Cranio-Sacral Therapy is an alternative medicine, intended to relieve pain and tension by gentle manipulations of the skull. Using gentle touch to palpate the synarthrodial joints of the cranium, a practitioner can work to balance a natural rhythm in the central nervous system.
Some people use craniosacral therapy as an adjunct to other forms of treatment, including migraine headaches, chronic pain, chronic fatigue syndrome, post-traumatic stress disorder, trauma of any kind, post-surgical recovery, TMJ, and others.
CST is not harmful when practiced sensitively and respectfully by a trained practitioner. It may support an attitude shift in clients toward a more direct and intimate sense of their own wellbeing, a feeling of “being more at peace with oneself.” It may also support a natural shift to self-acceptance, a more natural capacity for loving relations, and a sense of being connected to life.
Brittany Bivona is a licensed practitioner of CranioSacral Therapy, and is an accredited member of the CranioSacral Therapy Alliance.
