Cranial Sacral Therapy (CST) works with the fluid surrounding your spinal cord and brain. This fluid may be the source of tension in your body. CST therapy relieves that tension.
Cranial Sacral Therapy, from the perspective of being offered by trained massage therapists not osteopathic physicians, was pioneered by osteopathic physician Dr John Upledger (Upledger Institute ) following his research work at Michigan State University (circa 1975-1983). The therapy is implemented by the therapist “tuning in to the spinal fluid rhythm and very gently (approx 5g of touch – the weight of a nickel) facilitating a better communication between the brain and the central nervous system (discover CST ). The body then is able to facilitate a better state of health.
Somato Emotional Release (SER) is another therapeutic process that uses and expands on the principles of CranioSacral Therapy to help rid the mind and body of the residual effects of trauma. SER offers applications designed to enhance results using CST and other complementary therapies.
The book “Your Inner Physician and You” by Dr John Upledger is a great read and insight to the mechanics of the body’s ability to heal itself. Prior to Dr John Upledger there is a fascinating history of Dr William Sullivan’s work where he wore a helmet with straps and found by tightening the straps one way or the other would induce headaches and digestive issues. There is a wonderful summary of the history of cranial sacral work by Dr Michael Kern of the Biodynamic Cranial Sacral Association of North America.
