From post stroke episodes to chronic sports injury, CST is highly regarded as both a needed treatment post trauma as well as a preventative holistic modality for continued well-being. Reports for relief come from people suffering with trauma injuries such as concussions, migraines, headaches, musculoskeletal pains (neck, back, sacral), infant and childhood developmental disorders, ADD/ADHD, learning disorders, poor postural presentation, tension related disorders, fibromyalgia, fatigue, brain and spinal cord injuries, scoliosis TMJ, among others. Ask Dr. Kousouli about cranio-sacral therapy and if it is a helpful treatment option for you, on your next visit in.
Cranio-Sacral Therapy, or CST, works to provide relief to a variety of tension associated dis-eases associated with the brain and spinal cord (central nervous system). These structures are bathed by an important fluid that surrounds nourishes and protects them called cerebrospinal fluid. Distortions and tension that occur through our lives can form restrictions of cerebrospinal fluid flow thus leading to dis-ease.
The procedure itself is gentle and soft, using the fingers to deliver a touch the weight of a nickel that feels the rhythm of the CS fluid pulsing releasing tensions deep in the spine to relieve pain and dysfunction and improve whole-body performance.. This is done to specific points that release the deep restricted soft tissues surrounding the central nervous system.
