CranioSacral Therapy for Self-Correction

CranioSacral Therapy for Self-Correction

Just inside the bony cranium are billions of cells in our brain, part of a family of cells called “glia”. Glial cells, the major regulators of nervous system development, structure and function, are involved in all aspects of nervous system health and pathology.

Our inner universe of sensation, perception, memory and action is created by glia and neurons. The body’s craniosacral system - comprised of membranes and cerebrospinal fluid that protect and nourish the brain and spinal cord - connects directly to the glial cell matrix of the brain and spinal cord.


By using this powerful connection, craniosacral therapy (CST) glial techniques help improve nervous system structure, function, healing and health. CST is a gentle, hands-on method of evaluating and enhancing the functioning of the craniosacral system.

CST is increasingly used as a preventive health measure due to its ability to bolster resistance to disease, and is effective for a wide range of medical problems associated with pain and dysfunction. By working deeper, using the application of CST glia techniques, nervous system disorders—such as autism spectrum disorders, sensory processing issues, traumatic brain injury, neurodegenerative disorders, cerebral palsy, epilepsy, chronic pain, spinal cord trauma, anxiety and neuropathy—may be improved.
