What Is Craniosacral & Energy Healing?
Craniosacral therapy (CST) is a gentle, non-invasive, hands-on healing modality that works to heal the body by improving the functioning of the central nervous system. It enhances the body’s own healing processes, through the support and guidance of an experienced therapist.
Energy healing, which is also an form of hands on healing, can be instrumental in helping people with various chronic physical and mental ailments as well as emotional blockages.
Who Is CST Good For?
Craniosacral Therapy can be helpful for many conditions including headaches, TMJ, migraines, stress, chronic neck and back pain. By complementing the body’s natural healing processes, CST also helps fibromyalgia and other connective-tissue disorders; neuro-vascular or immune disorders; post-traumatic stress disorder; post-surgical dysfunction.
Those under chronic stress and with chronic inflammation may benefit greatly from Craniosacral work. CST coaxes the body to break the “fight or flight” pattern and reach a state of relaxation (by engaging the parasympathetic nervous system), where deep healing can occur.
What to Expect?
During a Craniosacral Therapy or intuitive massage session a deep sense of inner stillness and peace is experienced. This state of stillness creates the right environment for the body to heal itself. Many clients feel as though they have just experienced a full night’s rest, while others exclaim it is the most relaxed, yet energized they have felt in a long time.
You may choose to stay clothed for this session. If so, please wear lose fitting and comfortable clothing. Three to four consecutive sessions are recommended for best results.
1 session: $99
3 pack: $267 ($89/session)
How Does CST Differ from Massage Therapy?
Craniosacral Therapy is a type of massage. It is not meant to replace a therapeutic massage treatment, but to be used as tool to address chronic tension patterns. Often a therapeutic massage will only relieve pain for a short period of time because it does not reach the deepest tissues or the deeper neural components that the body has set up for self-protection.
If you find it takes you a full hour massage to begin to relax, Craniosacral Therapy may be the perfect alternative therapy for you!
