Craniosacral Therapy

Craniosacral Therapy at Montrose Physiotherapy & Massage in Abbotsford

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. 

CST uses a light touch on membranes and fluids in and around your central nervous system to 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 gentle skull manipulations that harmonize with your central nervous system’s natural rhythm.

What Does Craniosacral Therapy (CST) Treat?

First, your physiotherapist at Montrose Physiotherapy & Massage completes a thorough assessment of your symptoms before deciding to recommend 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 gently places their hands in specific patterns to assist your body to release tension in connective tissues, or “fascia.” Fascia forms a body-wide network, connecting your body on all levels.

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 type of light touch and fascial release treatment may help your muscles and/or organs naturally release tension and relieve stress to improve function. Patients often say they feel a deep sense of relaxation. You may feel warmth, tingling, a sense of letting go, greater relaxation, or a release of pressure throughout your body.
