Craniosacral Therapy (CST) is a gentle hands-on treatment that may provide relief from a variety of symptoms including headaches, neck pain, and side effects of cancer treatment among many others.

CST uses a light touch to adjust membranes and the movement of fluids in and around the central nervous system. Relieving tension in the central nervous system promotes a feeling of well-being by eliminating pain and boosting health and immunity.

Craniosacral therapy (CST) releases the effects of trauma, injury and stress

Releases the effects of trauma, injury and stress. Restores and balance the central nervous system.

A holistic, non-invasive way to improve self-regulation and healing.

The focus of CST is a gentle placement of hands to assist release of the body’s connective tissue, or “fascia.” Fascia (Latin word for “band”) is a covering found throughout the body including organs, glands, nerves, muscles, blood vessels, brain and spinal cord. This covering forms a body-wide connective network. CST is based on the idea that the body is interrelated at all levels. CST is thought to improve efficiency of biological processes through boosting inherent self-regulation, self-correction and self-healing. The therapy can be used successfully with children and adults.

What can I expect from a craniosacral therapy session?

A CST session is similar to massage therapy, except you stay fully clothed. The treatment session begins with a consultation with your trained therapist to identify troubled areas. Soft music and low lighting are often used to increase your state of relaxation. The therapist uses gentle pressure techniques to assess the existence of possible disruptions and/or restrictions in your fascial system. Light touch and fascial release may help your muscles and organs naturally relieve stress, which improves function. Other patients often report feeling a sense of deep relaxation.Is craniosacral therapy right for everyone?

CST can benefit almost everyone. With a few conditions, however, craniosacral therapy may not be appropriate and you’ll need to talk with your CST practitioner and physician.

Your session needs to wait if you have experienced any of the following and have NOT been released for treatment by your physician:

  • Recent concussion

  • Cerebral swelling

  • Structural defects in the cerebellum such as Arnold-Chiari malformation

  • Brain aneurysm

  • Traumatic brain injury

  • Blood clots

  • Any disorder that causes instability of cerebral fluid pressure, flow or build-up

Craniosacral Therapy Testimonials

Lucille P.

Taylor is an amazing Therapist. I was diagnosed with extreme peripheral neuropathy which left me needing a wheelchair. She was able to alleviate the pain in my hands, feet, and legs for hours after my sessions and I have more energy than I’ve had in ages. Taylor is professional and also very kind, gentle, soothing, and thoughtful. Craniosacral therapy is a wonderful experience and I am grateful to have Taylor as my therapist.

I was really impressed with Taylor’s energy work. This is the first time I’ve done Craniosacral Therapy. I have a lot of experience with energetic modalities and I recognize that she it is truly gifted! She can move your energy, remove blocks, and shift the way you feel. Thank you so much for an amazing session!

I've been in trauma recovery for nearly 8 years. None of the practices I tried brought my parasympathetic nervous system back like this. Taylor’s ability to listen and communicate with my body is nothing short of magical. In the couple months I had the privilege of working with Taylor, I was able to come back emotionally, feeling all my feelings!! I found my voice after years of choking on my words. I've been able to release grief and heal wounds. Anxiety manifesting in my stomach and gut has quieted. I know my current ability to be fully embodied in the present wouldn't be possible without her. This is a life changing practice and the more you are willing to trust her and release, the more she can do for you!
