Laura Doig, one of our massage therapists, is certified and offering
CranioSacral Therapy here at KW Health Connection!
CranioSacral Therapy (CST) is a light-touch approach that can create dramatic improvements in your life. It releases tensions deep in the body to relieve pain and dysfunction and improve whole-body health and performance. Your craniosacral system extends from the skull or the cranium down to the tailbone or sacrum. This system, made up of soft tissues and fluid that protect your brain and spinal cord, has a major impact on your central nervous system.
Every day you endure stresses and strains and your body absorbs them. But your body can only handle so much tension before the tissues begin to tighten and potentially affect the brain and spinal cord. Ultimately this can compromise the function of the central nervous system and the performance of nearly every other system in your body. CranioSacral Therapy releases those tensions to allow the entire body to relax and self-correct. By freeing the central nervous system to perform at its best, CST naturally eliminates pain and stress, strengthens your resistance to disease, and enhances your health and well-being.
CST helps relieve a full spectrum of pain, illness and dysfunction, including:
- Migraines and headaches
- Chronic neck and back pain
- Stress and tension-related disorders
- Motor-Coordination impairments
- Brain and spinal cord injuries
- Chronic fatigue
- TMJ syndrome
- Central nervous system disorders
- Post-traumatic stress disorder
- Orthopedic problems
A CranioSacral Therapy session can last up to an hour. It can be used alone or integrated with other therapies to create powerful effects. Be sure to ask about it next time you visit the clinic. You can also call or email the clinic and Laura would be happy to talk to you about it.
