CST for Chronic Pain

CranioSacral Therapy for Chronic Pain

Headaches, Anxiety, Depression, Seizures, etc.

CranioSacral Therapy (CST) can help reduce headache, jaw, and neck/back pain. It can help reduce dizziness and balance difficulties. It can help reduce anxiety and depression. It can help return sleep to more normal patterns. It can help reduce seizures and the need for high doses of medication. It can help reduce the severity of flare-ups of autoimmune conditions like multiple sclerosis, rheumatoid arthritis, and lupus.

It’s a great technique for babies to help reduce colic and developmental delays caused by birth difficulties.

It’s fantastic for anyone who has had whiplash due to a car accident because it’s so gentle. Recent or ancient accidents, it’ll help both.

It’s an interesting field trip if you’re a hot mess because I’ll follow the wisdom of your body instead of imposing my ideas on the treatment plan.

And if you’re nice, CranioSacral Therapy may change the oil in your car. (No, just kidding. It won’t do your laundry, either.)

It’s hard to explain how CranioSacral therapy works exactly. There are so many facets to it. Briefly, CST works on connective tissue (fascia), which wraps all your nerve cells, muscle cells, and groups of nerves or muscles. If you want more scientific info, here is the link for the nerd explanation. (I say that with kindness since I’m a total nerd.)

If you are drawn to an out-of-the-box explanation, click on that.

If I were to sum up my life in one word, it would be: Unlikely. I started out in science during the Sputnik era when scientists were cool. Ended up in grad school (microbiology) thinking, "wait, this doesn't work for me." Did science and medical reporting for 8 years. Switched to science fiction when I was home with little kids. Sucked at it. Gave it up in 2005 and worked at a granite countertop company for 2 years, running a CNC machine in the back shop with the guys. Got tired of working in an unheated room in the winter while wearing lots of layers, and went to massage school. The classroom didn't have heat in the winter for several months and now half of us were naked as practice bodies. They fixed the heat. I graduated. Started taking craniosacral therapy trainings. Loved it. Now I've been doing it for 13 years. Still love it. I'm a CST-D now, which is the highest level of certification the Upledger Institute gives. Took me 8 years. I can wear the tiara now, but I'm still learning new things all the time.
