The following is a very brief description of this wonderful method.
Cranio-Sacral Therapy (CST) is a gentle yet deep approach to healing.

This rhythm has an important role in the health, function, and unfolding of the whole body. Changes in the rhythm can direct the practitioner to areas that need therapeutic attention.
Arms, legs, and the neck can be 'unwound' instead of released through deep massage. Organs also can return to their inherent vascular rhythm.
