Craniosacral Therapy

Craniosacral Therapy (CST) is a gentle, hands-on method of evaluating and enhancing the functioning of the craniosacral system, comprised of the membranes and cerebrospinal fluid that surround and protect the brain and spinal cord.

Barbara uses CST in her acupuncture treatments to assist with the relaxation of the patient. These two modalities, when used together, provide maximum results with conditions that are exacerbated by stress of the central nervous system. These include issues such as migraine headaches, musculoskeletal pain, digestive difficulties, autoimmune disorders, and chronic conditions of all kinds.

Using a soft touch, generally no greater than 5 grams, about the weight of a nickel, practitioners release restrictions in the craniosacral system to improve the functioning of the central nervous system.

By complementing the body’s natural healing processes, CST is increasingly used as a preventive health measure for its ability to bolster resistance to disease, and is effective for a wide range of medical problems associated with pain and dysfunction.
