Craniosacral Somatic Therapy (CST) is a gentle technique that helps to release tensions deep within the body. It helps to relieve pain, dysfunction, and stored emotion from our cells. We encounter stress and strains in our body through activity, poor posture, inflammation, emotional trauma, and stress. This often causes our body tissues to tighten, which can distort the craniosacral system (our brain, spine and cerebral spinal fluid that runs through it) and result in restrictions to health performance. The tightening of our body tissues affects our bones and muscles, organs, nerves, blood, and lymph flow, by pulling on the fascia that surrounds them, creating blockages and misalignment’s.

How Craniosacral Somatic Therapy Works

The Fascia is the connective tissue surrounding our whole body. When we get tightness or limited functioning in one area of our fascia, it pulls on the whole sheet tight, creating blockages throughout the body. This also contributes to misalignment in the skeletal system by pulling the muscles in one direction or another, which creates a ripple effect throughout the entire body, and ultimately pain and dysfunction. Craniosacral Somatic Therapy (CST) works by using gentle touch to allow the body, with its own inner wisdom to correct itself of dysfunction, to undo the ripples to help the muscles, fascia, and bones come into correct alignment and function.

Another benefit is that CST works to relieve emotions from the body as well as physical pain through somatic emotional release. This is a therapeutic process that helps rid the mind and body of residual past trauma associated with negative experiences. Joint research efforts by Dr. John Upledger (the founder of CST) and biophysicist Dr. Zvi Karni led to the discovery that the body often retains (rather than dissipates) physical forces, and often the accompanying emotional energy, triggered by physiological, psychological, emotional or spiritual trauma.
