Description of the Anatomy 


The Craniosacral System consists of the membranes and cerebrospinal fluid that surround and protect the brain and spinal cord. The membrane is attached to the inside of the bones of the head, so craniosacral smallCST therapists use them as handles to connect to the craniosacral system. CST frees up the tissues in and around the craniosacral system to enhance better production, distribution and flow of cerebrospinal fluid. Cerebrospinal fluid protects, nourishes and helps detox the central nervous system. Improved flow of cerebrospinal fluid thus resources the body to perform better and to heal itself through improved building, repairing and balancing functions.

CST helps release trauma from the body and central nervous system making it useful for any trauma related experiences. CST also promotes relaxation by calming the autonomic nervous system. This is the part of us that learns to react to stress by ‘fight or flight’ responses, but finds it difficult to return to a relaxed state. CST is used as a preventive health measure for its ability to sustain a healthy immune system and thus bolster resistance to disease by complementing the body’s healing processes. CST improves our inner health and sense of well being. CST helps tension release from the body, often layer by layer and seeks the release of the root causes of tension.
