Craniosacral Therapy at Apex Physiotherapy in Abbotsford and Surrey
Cranial Sacral Therapy (CST) does what no other therapy has managed for many adults and children. Thought to improve the efficiency of your body’s biological processes, Craniosacral Therapy boosts self-regulation and self-healing.
CST uses a light touch on membranes and fluids in and around your central nervous system to relieve tension. This simple yet exacting touch promotes a feeling of well-being, eliminates pain, and boosts general health and immunity. Craniosacral Therapy works to ease pain and tension through a series of gentle manipulations of the skull harmonized to your central nervous system’s natural rhythm.
Which Conditions are Helped by Craniosacral Therapy (CST)?
Your physiotherapist at Apex Physiotherapy will complete a comprehensive assessment of your condition(s) before recommending Craniosacral Therapy (CST). You may be a candidate for this specialized therapy if you are coping with:
- Chronic pain
- Migraine headaches
- Multiple sclerosis
- Fascial adhesions
- Post-concussion syndrome
- Complex regional pain syndrome
- A neurodegenerative disease
- Temporo-mandibular joint (TMJ) syndrome
- Speech impairment
Your physiotherapist gently places their hands in specific patterns to assist your body to release tension in connective tissues, or “fascia.” Fascia forms a body-wide network, connecting your body on all levels.
What to Expect from Craniosacral Therapy (CST) Sessions
A Craniosacral Therapy session is much like regular massage therapy, but you stay fully clothed, and all the pressure is much less forceful. The session starts with a discussion with your physiotherapist to identify trouble areas and any changes since your last session.
The physiotherapist uses very gentle pressure to assess disruptions and/or restrictions in your fascia. This type of light touch and fascial release treatment may help your muscles and/or organs naturally release tension and relieve stress to improve function. Patients often say they feel a deep sense of relaxation. People report pleasant sensations like warmth, tingling, a letting go feeling, relaxation, or a pressure release throughout their body.
