What is CranioSacral Therapy?

CranioSacral Therapy (CST) is a style of bodywork that employs light touch and gentle manipulations to adjust and mobilize bones of the cranium, and release restrictions in connective tissue throughout the body. Typical effects include an immediate decrease in pain, improvement in function/ clarity, relief from stress, and a profound sense of inner peace. 

 

Appropriate for all ages (my youngest client was 45 minutes old at the time), see how this gentle bodywork can help YOU feel so much better IN your body!
