Craniosacral therapy is a gentle, non-invasive type of bodywork used to balance the craniosacral system in the body. This includes the bones, nerves, fluids, and connective tissues of the cranium and spinal area. CST is beneficial as a preventive health measure for its ability to increase resistance to disease, and it is effective for a wide range of medical problems associated with pain and dysfunction.
Using a soft touch which is generally no greater than 5 grams – about the weight of a nickel – practitioners release restrictions in the soft tissues that surround the central nervous system.
At Holistic Massage of Hood River, we offer either partial craniosacral therapy sessions combined with massage therapy, or full craniosacral therapy sessions.
