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.
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.
I was thrilled to be able to get my 8 year old son well without the use of antibiotics. This past winter when Ryan got the worst cough and cold he has ever experienced and a pediatrician wanted him to take ten days of medication for an ear infection I knew it was time to try what so many others have told me about. Chiropractic care isn’t just for the guy with a bad back. It’s about our whole body! Dr. Klim had wonderful suggestions for supporting Ryan’s immune system and was so patient and gentle explaining each adjustment to myself and son along the way. Ryan still talks about how much he loved Dr. Klim so much so his little brother has been hoping to get sick so he can go too!
Physical Medicine Program
I am forever grateful to have IWG in my life. The doctors take time to learn what is going on and fix the cause of health issues, not the just the symptoms. I have gone to medical doctors for symptoms that are causing me concern before and they say “oh that’s because of the age you are” or “that is normal” but when I go to IWG with the same concerns they listen and find the root of the cause. This means the world to me.
