Craniosacral Therapy / IWG Style /

Craniosacral Therapy (CST) increases the nutrient flow to your brain and nerves by balancing cerebrospinal fluid circulation. Thereby allowing you to think clearer, move better, and function optimally.  Removing interference and tension from the dura will allow your brain to communicate with your body, and the body can function with less stress.

The Purpose

A system of alternative medicine intended to relieve pain and tension by gentle manipulations of the cranial bones regarded as harmonizing with a natural rhythm in the central nervous system. Somato Emotional Release (SER), a subset of CST, is a therapeutic process that uses and expands on the principles of CranioSacral Therapy to help rid the mind and body of the residual effects of energetic and emotional trauma.

The Science

Is a form of bodywork or alternative therapy using gentle touch to palpate the synarthrodial joints of the cranium. A practitioner of craniosacral therapy uses gentle hand placements and motions on a patient’s spine, pelvis, and cranial bones. Practitioners understand that this palpation regulates the flow of cerebrospinal fluid and aids in “primary respiration” By utilizing this light modality to release stress throughout the entire body, it is then able to detoxify, heal, de-stress, balance, and function more optimally. “Craniosacral treatment had a favorable effect on autonomic nervous activity.” (Journal of Integrative Medicine: Volume 12, 2014   Issue 3)

The Use at IWG

IWG finds that CST greatly improves neurological conditions, brain fog, memory issues, and headaches by promoting blood flow and cerebrospinal fluid to the brain.  CST has great benefits in reducing pain and also improving lymphatic flow in the body. It is regularly used with programs at IWG in order to destress the systems of the body and allow for elevated full body healing.
