* What is CranioSacral Therapy?
     CranioSacral Therapy utilizes gentle touch to enhance the
     body's own natural healing ability to release restrictions
     and eliminate the effects of stress on the central nervous
     This is accomplished through working with the
     craniosacral system, which includes the bones of the face,
     skull & spine, along with the meningeal membranes and
     cerebrospinal fluid that surround and protect the brain
     and spinal cord, extending from the head to the tailbone. 
     This system is vital to our health & well-being, influencing
     the function of the central nervous system.  Dysfunction
     and/or imbalance in the craniosacral system can result in
     related motor, sensory, &/or neurological problems.
     The craniosacral system has it's own subtle rhythm (like a
     pulse or respiratory rate, but unique) that can be felt
     throughout the body, typically 6-12 cycles per minute.  
     This rhythm was first discovered in 1970 by Dr. John E.
     Upledger, osteopathic physician, during a neck surgery
     in which he was assisting.  Dr. Upledger's subsequent
     research looked first at the work of Dr. William Sutherland,
     the father of cranial osteopathy, who theorized that the
     the cranial bones were built for mobility, and  later (1975-
     83), while Professor of Biomechanics at Michigan State
     University, supervised a team of physiologists, anatomists,
     biophysicists nd bioengineers, thereby clarifying the
     mechanisms mechanisms behind this motion.
     The skilled CranioSacral Therapy Practitioner monitors this
     rhythm and pinpoints sources of obstruction and/or
     imbalance, enabling him/her to support the body in
     facilitating it's self-correcting mechanisms, and restoring
     optimum function & well-being. 
     At times, Energy Cysts (due to injury, disease, emotional
     trauma, prolongued stress, etc.) may form and remain
     trapped within the body's tissues.  The release of  past
     traumas and/or emotions may occur as part of the
     healing process - this is known as SomatoEmotional Release
     (SER).  Therapeutic Imagery & Dialogue are often utilized
     as effective tools in creating a bridge between the client and
     his/her "Inner Physician", allowing for the communication
     of vital healing information to be shared.
    CST/SER is easily combined with other complementary
     healing methods (alternative modalities & traditional
     medicine) for maximum results .
* What Conditions Can CST Help? 
     Since dysfunction/imbalance in the craniosacral system can
     result in sensory, motor &/or neurologic disabilities,
     CranioSacral Therapy (CST) can benefit the body in many
     ways, addressing both acute & chronic issues, as well as
     acting as an agent of preventive care.  CST can have very 
     positive effects on many types of problems, some of which
         * Headaches / Migraines                              * Colic
         * Brain & Spinal Cord Injuries                    * Learning Disabilities
         * Orthopedic Problems / Injuries                 * Autism 
         * Immune System Disorders                         * Chronic Fatigue         
         * Post Traumatic Stress Disorder                * Fibromyalgia
         * Emotional Difficulties                                * Anxiety 
         * Post-Surgical Dysfunction                         * Tinnitus
         * Neurovascular Disorders                          * Vertigo
         * Head / Neck / Back pain (acute/chronic)   * Immune Disorders
         * Sensory-Motor Dysfunction                       * Scoliosis     
         * Infant Feeding Difficulties                         * Stress Related Issues
         * Central Nervous System Disorders  
         * Temporomandibular Joint Syndrome (TMJ)
     CST is also extremely helpful during pregnancy, both pre-
     and post-natal (as well as during the delivery process), and
     for newborns, infants and children.
* How Many Sessions Will I Need?
     Since response to CranioSacral Therapy varies from
     individual to individual, as well as from session to session
     and depending upon the condition(s) involved, there is no
     one answer to this question. 
     The number of sessions required varies widely, from just
     one to up to several a week over the course of several
     weeks.  Serious &/or chronic/long-term issues may require
     more intensive/extended treatment.
     Once initial problem(s) have been resolved, many people
     choose to continue to receive CST "tune-ups" on a monthly
      basis to maintain harmony & function at the deepest level.
