CranioSacral Therapy

Lionel Bowen

The essential parts of the CranioSacral system are; the cerebral spinal fluid (CSF) which nourishes and cushions the brain and spinal cord, the membrane enclosing this fluid, and the bones the membrane is bonded to.  The CSF has its own internal rhythm which may be negatively influenced by stresses and strains. These influences can distort the surrounding membrane.  A gentle-touch approach restores an even, smooth rhythm in this fluid. Smoother rhythm reflects throughout the body as enhanced vitality and equilibrium.

CranioSacral Therapy is known for its light touch, no more than 5 grams of pressure. In general, the lighter the touch, the deeper the effect.  It sounds contradictory but this approach works with the instinctive reaction of the body to either fight against or shrink away from the intrusions of more aggressive therapies.

Our CST practitioner has over 10 years of training and experience in this highly regarded practice.
