CranioSacral Therapy in Surrey

person getting neck adjustedStress and tension go hand in hand. Together, they contribute to all kinds of diseases and increase your experience of pain, as compression in the spine reduces nerve function throughout the body.

At Rosemary Heights Clinic, we use CranioSacral therapy (CST) as an effective technique that allows the fluids surrounding your spine to flow properly. Removing tensions in your central nervous system then allows the rest of your body to heal. Our expertly applied light touch is a calming and simple approach to health care that helps your body rejuvenate without harsh medications, injections, or procedures.

Simple, Effective Pain Relief

CranioSacral therapy is a gentle, hands-on approach that releases tensions deep in the central nervous system & removes blockages in the flow of spinal fluids. As a result, it often improves whole-body health & performance.

Osteopathic physician John E. Upledger, professor of Biomechanics at Michigan State University, developed this technique through years of research and clinical testing. An increasing number of healthcare providers are turning to CST for its ability to bolster resistance to disease. It can respond to a wide range of medical problems by relieving pain and improving the body’s functioning.

Finding and Relieving Tension

Every day, your body must work hard to compensate for the stresses and strains it endures. Unfortunately, this often causes body tissues to tighten, distorting the craniosacral system. As a result, tension forms around the brain and spinal cord. This can prevent the central nervous system from performing properly. The nervous system affects every other system in the body, so restricted nerves often lead to health problems in other areas of the body.

CST practitioners use their hands to evaluate the health of the craniosacral system. We’ll gently feel various locations of the body to test the ease of motion and rhythm of the cerebrospinal fluid pulsing around the brain and spinal cord. We’ll then use soft touch to release any restrictions we find in the tissues. By triggering healing at the source of the spine, this technique allows your body to restore itself from within. As the nervous system heals, you may experience a decrease in physical symptoms like pain and immobility. You will also likely feel more relaxed, both physically and emotionally.

The Healing Power of Soft Touch

This therapy uses soft touch that is generally less than five grams, or about the weight of a nickel. Practitioners apply light pressure to release restrictions in the soft tissues surrounding the central nervous system.

Few structures have as much influence over the body’s ability to function properly as the brain and spinal cord, which make up the central nervous system. The central nervous system is in turn heavily influenced by the craniosacral system, or the membranes and fluid that surround, protect, and nourish the brain and spinal cord.

A Gentle Solution

CST helps relieve various dysfunctions, including chronic pain, sports injuries, and more. We often use CST for patients who feel hesitant about chiropractic adjustments. This gentle approach is much less intimidating, but it still provides incredible results.

We’ll also recommend this therapy for patients with stubborn health conditions that are not responding sufficiently to chiropractic or massage therapy. Using light touch alongside regular chiropractic sessions increases the effectiveness of care and helps you achieve improved health results.
