What is Craniosacral Therapy?

"Cranial sacral therapy (CST) is sometimes also referred to as craniosacral therapy. It’s a type of bodywork that relieves compression in the bones of the head, sacrum (a triangular bone in the lower back), and spinal column.

CST is noninvasive. It uses gentle pressure on the head, neck, and back to relieve the stress and pain caused by compression. It can, as a result, help to treat a number of conditions.

It’s thought that through the gentle manipulation of the bones in the skull, spine, and pelvis, the flow of cerebrospinal fluid in the central nervous system can be normalized. This removes “blockages” from the normal flow, which enhances the body’s ability to heal." (Via Healthline.com)

What to expect on your first Craniosacral Therapy session with Holly (Registered Nurse, Board Certified Holistic Nurse, and Craniosacral Therapist):

During your first session, the first 10-15 minutes are spent discussing what you’re hoping to achieve through the session, so that Holly can meet your individual circumstances. Every client comes in with different needs.

A Craniosacral Therapy session is done on a massage table and involves gentle touch. Unlike a massage, you stay dressed the whole time, so wear comfortable clothing. Be prepared to remove your shoes and socks to receive footwork (acupressure, massage), and please remove any large or excessive jewelry. Each session is a team effort between the practitioner and the client, so consider having more than one session, as it can take some time to find a rhythm. Holly's sessions help people with grounding, relaxation, releasing emotion and developing skills for coping with anxiety and depression. She always tells people the best way to understand Craniosacral Therapy is to experience it.

You may also book additional paid sessions with Holly at a reduced rate for Survivor Wellness clients.
