What can I expect from a CST session?

A typical session takes place in a quiet, private setting.  You remain fully clothed as you relax on a comfortable padded table.  Your therapist begins by gently touching various parts of your body to monitor the rhythm of the fluid that is flowing around your Central Nervous System.  By carefully listening with the hands to locate areas of weak fluid flow or tissue motion, your practitioner can trace those areas of weakness through the body to the original source of dysfunction.  Delicate (5 grams ~ about the weight of a nickel) manual techniques are then used to release those problem areas and improve the form and function of your central nervous system.

A CranioSacral Session can last up to one hour or more.  It can be used alone or integrated with other massage therapies to create powerful effects. What you experience from your own session is highly individual.  The sessions are generally deeply relaxing, creating feelings of warmth or gentle pulsing in the areas the therapist is working on.
