Cranio-sacral therapy

Cranio-Sacral Therapy (CST) is a unique and non-invasive treatment that consists of deliberately-chosen gentle movements that encourage the release of built-up tension in connective tissue. Get Well offers professional cranio-sacral therapy to anyone who is struggling with a chronic injury.

What is Cranio-Sacral Therapy?

Cranio-Sacral Therapy is a manipulation technique that works to release tension that is held deep within the body. Trained practitioners use gentle touches to reduce build-up that occurs in the soft tissues near the central nervous systems. While Cranio-Sacral Therapy is often used as a preventative therapy, it can also be used to treat a diverse set of injuries. 

Promoters of Cranio-Sacral Therapy laud its non-invasive and mild approach to aiding in the treatment of intense physical injuries. Due to its relaxing properties, Cranio-Sacral Therapy has been noted to help some sufferers of mood disorders such as anxiety, bipolar disorder, or depression. 

How Does Cranio-Sacral Therapy Work?

For every single one of us, stress can build up throughout the course of the day, no matter how hard we try to prevent it. These stresses can have the effect of tightening and clenching up our bodies, which in turn affects our craniosacral system. When our craniosacral system is changed or damaged, we can feel the lasting effects on our central nervous systems, as well as every other system that the central nervous system is in contact with. 

Cranio-Sacral Therapy works by releasing this built-up tension, contributing to a better communication between the craniosacral system and the rest of your body, which will have you feeling less sore and more capable of everyday movements.

What Does Cranio-Sacral Therapy Treat?

As our craniosacral system can affect so many facets of our wellness, it makes sense that Cranio-Sacral Therapy can treat a number of problems including:

  • Sports injuries
  • Chronic back or shoulder pain
  • TMJ
  • Neck pain and whiplash
  • Injury trauma
  • Mood disorders such as anxiety, bipolar disorder, and depression
  • Insomnia
  • Irritable Bowel Syndrome (IBS)
