What Is Craniosacral Therapy?

CranioSacral Therapy (CST) is a form of alternative therapy that uses a gentle, hands-on approach to release tension deep in the body that relieves pain and correct dysfunction. Using a soft touch, therapists at Spine Center Atlanta release restrictions in the soft tissue surrounding the central nervous system by regulating the flow of cerebrospinal fluid to soothe the synarthrodial joints of the cranium.

How Craniosacral Therapy Works?

The central nervous system made up of the brain and spinal cord controls the majority of our body’s ability to function properly and perform at its optimal level. The craniosacral system, the membranes, and fluid that nourish, surround and protect the brain and spinal cord, plays an integral part of how well the nervous system functions. With the everyday stresses and strains our bodies undergo, the body responds in ways to compensate for it; oftentimes causing body tissues to tighten and distort your craniosacral system.

This tightening causing tension to form around the brain and spinal cord. These restrictions can prevent the optimal performance of the central nervous system, which in turn, affects every other system it influences. Spine Center Atlanta, top therapists are trained to detect and correct these restrictions using CranioSacral Therapy. Our therapists will normalize the area around your brain and spinal cord enhancing your central nervous system ability to self-correct.
