Cranial Sacral Therapy (CST) is a light touch diagnostic and treatment method which allows the skilled practitioner to treat joints, fascia, and connective tissues in nervous system, the dural membranes. The cranial sacral system is comprised of these tissues and the fluid which surrounds the brain and spinal cord, cerebral spinal fluid. The movement dynamics of this system are vital to optimal physiological function for the human body. Cranial Sacral Therapy optimizes these dynamics by removing restrictions, realigning malpositioned structures, and regulating the cranial sacral system.
At Palmer Chiropractic and Wellness, CST is utilized in conjunction with Chiropractic care. As they are both techniques which seek to optimize the nervous system, they synergize fantastically together. Frequently, utilization of these techniques together allows patients to achieve results which they may not be able to achieve with these techniques used in an isolated fashion.
