Craniosacral Therapy – Vancouver – Everest Therapeutics

Craniosacral Therapy (CST) was pioneered and developed by the famed Osteopathic physician Dr. W.G. Sutherland. This progressive technique consists of a light hands-on approach to evaluate and improve the functioning of a very important physiological system of the body, the cranial system. The therapy is continually being modernized by leading osteopaths, medical doctors, registered massage therapists and other practitioners from around the world.

The Cranial System

cranial-sacralThe cranial system is comprised of the thick fascial membrane (dura) that surrounds and separates the structures of the brain and penetrates into the spinal column to cover and protect the spinal cord.

The membrane attaches itself to the inside of the various skull bones along with two vertebrae at the top of the neck and one vertebrae at the base of the spine, essentially suspending the brain and spinal cord in a container of cerebrospinal fluid.

Fascial restrictions within the craniosacral system create imbalances through the 22 bones of the face and skull, ultimately compromising the central nervous system and affecting the proper balances of the body.

Interrupting the flow of the craniosacral fluid can lead to and augment conditions such as:

  • Migraine headaches
  • Chronic neck and back pain
  • Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder
  • Orthopaedic problems
  • Stress and tension-related problems
  • Motor-Coordination impairments
  • Temporomandibular Joint Syndrome (TMJ)
  • Neurovascular or immune disorders
  • Learning disabilities
  • Fibromyalgia and other connective-tissue disorders
