Frequently asked questions
What is Craniosacral Therapy?
CranioSacral Therapy (CST) is a gentle, hands-on approach that uses a soft touch to address fascial restrictions in the body, dural membrane restrictions of the brain and spinal cord and sutural restrictions of the skull bones. It was pioneered and developed by Osteopathic Physician John E. Upledger after years of clinical testing and research at Michigan State University where he served as professor of biomechanics. Practitioners release restrictions in the fascial system to relieve pain and dysfunction and improve whole-body health and performance. This then enhances the flow of cerebrospinal fluid (CSF) within the nervous system to provide a generalized feeling of rejuventation and relaxation. CST is increasingly used as a preventive health measure for its ability to bolster resistance to disease, and it's effective for a wide range of medical problems associated with pain and dysfunction.
Why choose CRS instead of any other physical therapy facility?
At CRS, we aim to address the UNDERLYING source of dysfunction rather than solely focusing on symptom management. CRS ensures personalized, comprehensive and specialized care, including advanced manual therapy with specificity of intention. We emphasize INTEGRATED MOBILITY using our ABC approach, providing holistic yet individualized care to promote health & wellness.
