Craniosacral therapy (CST) is a gentle hands-on technique that uses a light touch to examine membranes and movement of the fluids in and around the central nervous system. Relieving tension in the central nervous system promotes a feeling of well-being by eliminating pain and boosting health and immunity.

Craniosacral therapy uses holding techniques of very light touch on a clothed person's body, usually under a blanket on a heated table. It is not massage therapy and does not use oil or creme to apply strokes to the muscles. The therapy is not meant to be a muscular therapy. It is a relaxation treatment, like an assisted silent meditation that brings awareness to your body.

Craniosacral therapy is not Massage Therapy and should not be confused with a licensed Massage Therapist. In Massachusetts,  the rules and regulations regarding Massage Therapy do not prevent or restrict the practice of a person who uses touch, words, or directed movement to deepen awareness of patterns of movement in the body, or the affectation of the human energy system or acupoints or Qi meridians of the human body. Such practices include bodywork like Craniosacral Therapy. 

Our practitioners that practice bodywork that are not licensed massage therapists are insured under our establishment insurance  abide by our Code Of Ethics. Let us know if you have questions or concerns.

What is Craniosacral Therapy?
It is a light touch manual therapy that focuses on improving the structure of the body, in particular the central nervous system, so that the body as a whole can work at its highest level.

How does it work?
We can think of a body as an interwoven biological fabric. If any part of the body is twisted, pulled or imbalanced, it'll affect the entire body in some way. By accessing your central nervous system, using the body's innate intelligence, a practitioner can remove any restrictions and help the body heal itself. Craniosacral therapy has shown good results alleviating stress, trauma, and pain. Most clients find it deeply relaxing.
