CST is a gentle, hands-on method of evaluating and enhancing the functioning of a physiological body system called the craniosacral system – comprised of the membranes and cerebrospinal fluid that surround and protect the brain and spinal cord.
What is the anatomical substructure?
The base of the therapy is the craniosacral system which makes the body system’s third big rhythm besides the respiratory and circulatory organ system. The cranio- sacral name comes from cranium (skull) and sacrum. The system consists of connective tissue membrane (dura mater) around the brain and spinal cord and liquid of brain and spinal cord as well as connective tissue system in strong connection with muscles and bones. Nerves can detect every changes in the body relating bone, muscle, connective tissue and internal organs which are in relation with dura mater. The formed dems caused by physical or psychical damages can hold back the flow of the brain and spinal cord’s liquid which can lead to different abnormality.
What is the aim of the therapy?
The goal of the therapy is to ease the connective tissue membrane and the circulation of brain, to correct the tensity of joints, to relax the muscles, to normalize the flow of the brain and spinal cord’s liquid. To release physical or psychical stress. With the help of the therapy we can effect the body organs the system of bones and muscles, the nerve system, the system of heart and vein, immune system, connective tissue and the energy system of the body.
The progression of the therapy
During the therapy we move from the cranium to the sacrum with soft touches alongside the membrane route where the fluid flows. If the fluid flow is not correct or blocked then we correct the micro movements of cranium to normalize the flow. By manipulating the skull we can maximize the operation of the brain and spinal cord. By harmonizing the nerve system we can resyncronize the body and start up self-healing mechanism. The treatment is not painful at all it even feels good. We use definite and radical but gentle movements on the head and pelvic bone along the spine. The touch generally no greater than 5 grams. Most of the patients would get into deep and relaxed status which comes with harmony and peace.
