Craniosacral Therapy

Craniosacral Therapy at Terranova Physiotherapy in Richmond, BC

Cranial Sacral Therapy (CST) does what no other therapy has managed for many adults and children. Thought to improve the efficiency of your body’s biological processes, Craniosacral Therapy boosts self-regulation and self-healing. 

With a gentle touch on fluids and membranes in your skull and your central nervous system, CST can relieve tension. This simple yet exacting touch promotes a feeling of well-being, eliminates pain, and boosts general health and immunity. Craniosacral Therapy eases pain and tension using this series of gentle manipulations of the skull that harmonize with your central nervous system’s natural rhythm.

Which Conditions are Helped by Craniosacral Therapy (CST)?

Your physiotherapist at Terranova Physiotherapy in Richmond, BC, will complete a comprehensive assessment of your condition(s) before recommending Craniosacral Therapy (CST). You may be a candidate for this specialized therapy if you are coping with:

  • Chronic pain
  • Migraine headaches
  • Fibromyalgia
  • Multiple sclerosis
  • Stroke
  • Fascial adhesions
  • Post-concussion syndrome
  • Complex regional pain syndrome
  • Neuralgia
  • A neurodegenerative disease
  • Temporo-mandibular joint (TMJ) syndrome
  • Epilepsy
  • Speech impairment

Your physiotherapist places their hands in specific patterns to gently assist your body to release the tension in connective tissues, or “fascia.” Fascia connects your body on all levels with a body-wide network.

What to Expect from Craniosacral Therapy (CST) Sessions

A Craniosacral Therapy session is much like regular massage therapy, but you stay fully clothed, and all the pressure is much less forceful. The session starts with a discussion with your physiotherapist to identify trouble areas and any changes since your last session.

The physiotherapist uses very gentle pressure to assess disruptions and/or restrictions in your fascia. This light touch to create fascial release helps muscles and organs naturally relieve stress and improve function.

Patients often say they feel a deep sense of relaxation. People report pleasant sensations like warmth, tingling, a letting go feeling, relaxation, or a pressure release throughout their body.
