CRANIOSACRAL THERAPY
CST is a gentle, hands-on method of evaluating and enhancing the functioning 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. Using a soft touch generally no greater than 5 grams, or about the weight of a nickel, practitioners release restrictions in the craniosacral system to improve the functioning of the central nervous system. Craniosacral therapy is used to treat stress, neck and back pain, TMJ Syndrome, and chronic pain conditions including fibromyalgia.

MYOFACIAL RELEASE
Myofascial Release is a highly specialized stretching technique used to relieve the pain and posture problems associated with a variety of soft tissue problems. Fascia is a thin tissue that covers every muscle and every fiber within each muscle. When muscle fibers are injured, the fibers and the fascia which surrounds it become short and tight. This uneven stress can be transmitted through the fascia to other parts of the body, causing pain and  variety of  other symptoms in areas you often wouldn’t expect.

SOMATOEMOTIONAL RELEASE
Somatoemotional Release is a therapeutic process that uses and expands on the principles of CranioSacral Therapy to help rid the mind and body of the residual effects of trauma. The body often retains the emotional imprint of a trauma. Many times this looks like an injury that has not healed.
