CranioSacral Therapy

CranioSacral Therapy (CST) was pioneered and developed by osteopathic physician John E. Upledger following extensive scientific studies from 1975 to 1983 at Michigan State University, where he served as a clinical researcher and Professor of Biomechanics.


CranioSacral Therapy (CST) is a gentle, hands-on method of evaluating and enhancing the functioning of a physiological body system called the craniosacral system - comprised of the membranes and cerebrospinal fluid that surround and protect the brain and spinal cord.

Using a soft touch generally no greater than 5 grams, or about the weight of a nickel, practitioners release restrictions in the craniosacral system, which has been shown to improve the functioning of the central nervous system, as well as many other systems of the body, such as digestive, musculoskeletal, respiratory, circulatory, and more.


CST has also been shown to help with the physical components related to such somatic conditions as Post Traumatic Stress, depression and anxiety.

By facilitating the body's natural and innate healing processes, CST is increasingly used as a preventive health measure for its ability to bolster resistance to disease, and is effective for helping people with a wide range of healthcare challenges associated with pain and dysfunction, including:

Migraine Headaches    Chronic Neck and Back Pain    Motor-Coordination Impairments    Colic    Autism    Central Nervous System Disorders    Orthopedic Problems     Concussions and Traumatic Brain Injuries     Alzheimer's Disease and Dementia     Spinal Cord Injuries     Scoliosis    Infantile Disorders     Learning Disabilities     Chronic Fatigue     Emotional Difficulties     Stress and Tension-Related Problems     Fibromyalgia and other Connective-Tissue Disorders    Temporomandibular Joint Syndrome (TMJ)    Neurovascular or Immune Disorders    Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder    Post-Surgical Dysfunction
