Craniosacral therapy (CST)

Craniosacral therapy (CST)

Craniosacral therapy calms and quietens the body whilst stimulating its innate healing ability and restoring it back to optimum health. Although it derives from Osteopathy, it is a much gentler, light touch therapy in which the therapist uses a so-called Butterfly touch to palpate the body’s natural rhythm. The body has an inherent craniosacral rhythm in addition to the breath and heartbeat. This is the pulse of fluid inside the central nervous system much like the pulse of blood housed in the cardiovascular system.

As the name suggests, the Craniosacral system consists of the cranium down to the sacrum and includes the spinal column in between and the central nervous system within. However, CST does not work just the head and spine but also works with the whole person, resulting in positive changes to the mind, body and emotions during and after the session.

When a practitioner places their hands lightly on you in the session, they are using them to listen to you in much the same way as a counsellor might listen to your words. Your body responds to this sensitive touch by beginning to listen to itself. A feeling that the patient has been heard is a common experience both during and after a CST session. It is practised extensively around the world and continues to grow in popularity for a wide range of people.

Due to its gentle and non-invasive nature, CST is suitable for everyone from new born babies to the elderly. It is deeply relaxing and powerful at reducing stress and anxiety. Ideal in the support of athletes recovering from injuries, sprains or breaks, it relaxes the tissues around the spine and shoulders promoting recovery. Women often benefit from treatments during pregnancy as well as mothers and babies following birth.

Dev Nayak

Dev discovered Craniosacral therapy after the birth of his twin sons. When they were born prematurely, Craniosacral therapy helped them thrive and it continues to do so.  It also helped him to recover from long-term sports injuries which allowed him to continue teaching Karate in London. Upon experiencing the benefits first-hand, Dev decided to study it further and is now a certified Craniosacral therapist registered with the Craniosacral Therapy Association.
