What is Cranial Sacral Therapy?
CS Therapy is a gentle, hands-on therapy that uses very light pressure — about 5 grams, or the weight of a nickel — to guide your body into healing itself, releasing restrictions and facilitating the flow of Cerebrospinal fluid. The purpose of using such a soft touch is that any pressure beyond 5 grams will activate the resistance mechanism in the body. Accessing the CSF and clearing energy is inhibited when the body is in resistance mode. CS therapy works just under this resistance radar to induce effective, therapeutic change. CSF is a clear, colorless liquid that bathes the brain and spinal cord.
What are the benefits of this therapy?
- Releases tensions in the central nervous system so that every other system in the body can relax, self-correct and free itself from pain and discomfort.
