FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS
What is CranioSacral Therapy?CranioSacral Therapy (CST) is a light-touch, non-invasive therapy that works to release restrictions in the soft tissue that surrounds the central nervous system (CNS). This normalization of the environment around the brain and spinal cord results in improved functioning of the CNS, ultimately leading to an increase in the body’s ability to self-correct.
How does CranioSacral Therapy work?We encounter stress of all kinds each day that the body compensates for through a tightening of muscles and soft tissues that affect the brain and spinal cord, that can impair function. The light touch of CST works to locate and release this natural reaction and, as a result, can improve neuromuscular functions, ease emotional pain, and enhance sensory functions and motor coordination. CST is effective for a wide variety of dysfunctions and, since it is so gentle, ideal for people of all ages, from newborns to seniors.
Are there any other conditions for which CST should not be used?There are certain conditions where even the smallest amount of intracranial pressure would make CST contraindicated. Any preexisting severe bleeding disorders, acute aneurysm, cerebral hemorrhage and chiari malformation are all examples of when CST is inadvisable. Sharing any concerns like this should be discussed thoroughly with your practitioner before beginning treatment.
How many sessions will I need?Each person responds to CST differently based on their health condition. Even when someone else might seem to have an issue like yours, the rate of your responsiveness is very specific to your body. This can make the number of sessions necessary for you and your needs vary from one up to three in just one week, or over the course of many weeks or months.
How often should I have a CST session?This again is a variable based on your condition or whether you are seeking CST as a form of healthy maintenance for your central nervous system. There are clients who stay in front of their health by choosing CST once a month or every three months and these are the ones who show lowest incidence with common colds, seasonal allergies, fewer recurrence of headaches and TMJ tension and basic higher immunity responses.
How should I prepare for my CST session?Appropriate hydration is always good prior to your CST sessions. Clients remain fully clothed and are suggested to wear comfortable clothing like athletic wear. Heavy belts, jeans and dresses are discouraged.
What should I expect after a CST session?Oftentimes the effects most noted can show up within the first 24 hours. Although it is not uncommon to experience effects several days after your session. Since each condition and each body has a different responsive rate this will also be true of what type of results you encounter and how long they will last. Feeling extremely relaxed, recognizing lower tension or decreased pain are the most common remarks from clients. Sleeping very deeply is another frequent and welcomed response. Additionally, clients have reported an abundance of energy and sharper focus and attention. Equally as important as before a CST session, staying hydrated after CST will greatly help the body move out metabolic toxins and waste.
