Shiatsu Therapy is often recommended prior to engaging in ongoing Cranial Sacral work - to stimulate Qi flow and thoroughly loosen the body. 

 ~ Using light touch & supportive presence...

the Practitioner holds space for your body to relax and move towards its natural and balanced state.

The Cranial Sacral Therapy system is based on the subtle motion and energy of the Cranial Sacral Impulse, which includes the cerebrospinal fluid.  

CST quiets the mind, and deeply relaxes the body and the central nervous system.  On one level the usually active "Fight or Flight" action is dialled down so that the "Rest and Repair" action of your nervous system can better do its job uninhibited.  

During a session the Client lies clothed upon the massage table.  The practitioner will utilize hand positions and a very gentle supportive presence to allow your body to subtly "unwind".  Tensions in the musculoskelatal system, fascia and organs will be gently released.  

Cranial Sacral Therapy assists your body in healing past traumas from injuries, accidents and illnesses.  It is an excellent treatment form to address chronic pain issues, headaches and musculoskeletal tension.  It is also very beneficial for dealing with insomnia, stress and emotional issues.
