Within this blog post, we delve into the ways craniosacral therapy (CST) works as a holistic option for alleviating back pain. If you have been contending with persistent back discomfort, this gentle yet powerful therapy may offer the relief and healing you seek.

Back pain is a prevalent issue affecting hundreds of millions of individuals worldwide. Frequently stemming from poor posture, injuries, or core muscle weakness, sitting too much/ not moving enough. This ailment can significantly hinder daily activities, diminish quality of life, and lead to chronic pain and discomfort if left unattended. Many people have learned to ignore the signals that something is wrong. They have learned to live with back pain. And while that is an option, there is another way. CST will help facilitate your body to heal, with integrity and solid structure.

Craniosacral therapy, a gentle, hands-on technique. It focuses on enhancing the body’s natural healing abilities by assessing the craniosacral system and then using light touch encourages the tissues to release and allow transformational healing to occur. Through subtle manipulations, and light touch encourages tension to be released which improves the functioning of the craniosacral system.

The craniosacral system is made up of network of membranes called the meninges, cerebrospinal fluid surrounding the brain and spinal cord, the bones of the cranium, and the sacrum. It circulates oxygen, nutrients to the whole central nervous system. It also removes toxins, metabolic byproducts, old cells from the system delivering the “garbage” to the lymph and venous systems to be recycled and eliminated.

CST induces deep relaxation, allowing the body to unwind areas of tension and release accumulated stress and tension, which often contribute to back pain.

Gentle manipulation of the bones in the craniosacral system and surrounding tissues, helps correct misalignments, relieves pressure on nerves and supports proper posture.

The craniosacral rhythm is monitored and used to facilitate the circulation of cerebrospinal fluid, nourishing and revitalizing the spinal tissues, thereby promoting healing.
