Experience CranioSaral Therapy with Terrye Witte, OTR/L

 

 

CranioSacral therapy (CST) uses a gentle, light-touch approach that can release tensions deep in the body.  The CranioSacral system includes the soft tissues and cerebral spinal fluid which flows from your brain to your sacrum. The function of the CranioSacral system is to cushion and protect your brain and spinal chord.

The CranioSacral rhythm can be detected throughout the whole body  (similar to the ability to feel ones heart rate in areas other than the heart). Evaluation reveals the areas that have restrictions (from tight connective tissue called “fascia”) minimizing this important fluid, which affects your Nervous, Endocrine, and Immune systems, as well as your muscles.

The philosophy of the CranioSacral therapy technique is based on our bodies ability to self-correct or self-heal. (CST practitioners often refer to this as the Inner Physician) We have all experienced an example of this when we get a cut or scrape.  Our body will respond by closing the skin. Immune and inflammatory responses are also self -healing examples.

Different from typical massage, treatment is performed while clothed lying face up on the massage table. Assessment informs the therapist where to start on each body. Hands are placed on the identified area, gently sinking down into the fascial restriction. The restriction is then followed along the line of tension. This is a gentle technique. It requires you to feel safe and nurtured.  Fascia works as a protective mechanism in the body and resists releasing if one is feeling guarded.
