Craniosacral Therapy

Craniosacral Therapy at Haney Physiotherapy in Maple Ridge, BC

Cranial Sacral Therapy (CST) does what no other therapy has managed for many adults and children. By improving the efficiency of biological processes in your body, Craniosacral Therapy supports both self-healing and self-regulation systems. 

CST uses a light touch on membranes and fluids in and around your central nervous system to relieve tension. These precise touches eliminate pain, boost immunity, and promote general health and well-being.

Craniosacral Therapy works to ease pain and tension through a series of gentle manipulations of the skull harmonized to your central nervous system’s natural rhythm.

Which Conditions are Helped by Craniosacral Therapy (CST)?

Your physiotherapist at Haney Physiotherapy in Maple Ridge, BC, will complete a comprehensive assessment of your condition(s) before recommending Craniosacral Therapy (CST). You may be a candidate for this specialized therapy if you are coping with:

  • Chronic pain
  • Migraine headaches
  • Fibromyalgia
  • Multiple sclerosis
  • Stroke
  • Fascial adhesions
  • Post-concussion syndrome
  • Complex regional pain syndrome
  • Neuralgia
  • A neurodegenerative disease
  • Temporo-mandibular joint (TMJ) syndrome
  • Epilepsy
  • Speech impairment

Your physiotherapist gently places their hands in specific patterns to assist your body to release tension in connective tissues, or “fascia.” Your body has a network of fascia throughout that connects your body on every level.

What to Expect from Craniosacral Therapy (CST) Sessions

A Craniosacral Therapy session is much like regular massage therapy, but you stay fully clothed, and all the pressure is much less forceful. The session starts with a discussion with your physiotherapist to identify trouble areas and any changes since your last session.

The physiotherapist uses very gentle pressure to assess disruptions and/or restrictions in your fascia. This type of light touch and fascial release treatment may help your muscles and/or organs naturally release tension and relieve stress to improve function. Patients often say they feel a deep sense of relaxation. People report pleasant sensations like warmth, tingling, a letting go feeling, relaxation, or a pressure release throughout their body.
