CranioSacral Therapy (CST) is a gentle, hands-on method of evaluating and enhancing the function of a Physiological body system called the craniosacral system - comprised of the membranes and cerebrospinal fluid that surround and protect the brain and spinal cord.

  • CST enhances the body's natural healing processes and has been effective for a wide range of medical problems associated with pain and dysfunction, including:

Migraine Headaches - Chronic Neck and Back Pain - Motor-Coordination Impairments - Central Nervous System Disorders - Orthopedic Problems - Scoliosis - Infantile Disorders - Colic - Autism - Learning Disabilities - Traumatic Brain and Spinal Cord Injuries - Emotional Difficulties - Stress and Tension-related Problems - Temporomandibular Joint Dysfunction (TMJ) - Chronic Fatigue - Neurovascular or Immune Disorders - Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder - Post Surgical Dysfunction  Fibromyalgia and other Connective-Tissue Disorders.

  • The technique is increasingly used as a preventive health measure for its ability to bolster resistance to disease and sustain overall good health.
  • Number of UI-trained practitioners - more than 40,000 worldwide.
  • Healthcare practitioners using CST in their work include: osteopathic physicians, medical doctors, doctors of chiropractic, doctors of Oriental medicine, naturopathic physicians, dentists, nurses, psychiatric specialists, psychologists, physical therapists, occupational therapists, acupuncturists, massage therapists and other professional bodyworkers.
  • A typical CST session lasts between 45 minutes and one hour.
  • Costs Range from $40 to $200 per session.
  • CST was developed by osteopathic physician John E. Upledger, D.O., O.M.M., in the 1970s. It's based on the theories of William Sutherland, D.O. (an osteopath from the early 1900s); Dr. Upledger's research at Michigan State University (1975-83); and extensive clinical application.
