CranioSacral Therapy Massage
What it is
CranioSacral Therapy (CST) is a gentle approach that releases tensions deep in the body to relieve pain and dysfunction and improve whole-body health and performance. Using a soft touch and holding specific places on the head and spine, restrictions are released in the soft tissues that surround the central nervous system. CST is increasingly used as a preventive health measure for its ability to bolster resistance to disease. It’s effective for a wide range of medical problems, as it accelerates healing and directs the body toward a more balanced state. It's a good choice of therapy for those who prefer a very gentle touch, have a history of head or spinal injuries, have inner ear problems, have chronic headaches, or have recently had surgery.
How to prepare for your session
- An hour before your massage, ensure you're well hydrated and drink a glass of water if needed.
- If you're able to do so, warm your muscles up before the session by taking a hot bath, soaking in Ouray Hot Springs, or taking a gentle 10-15 minutes stroll.
- After your massage, be sure to avoid alcohol or any sugary drinks and continue to hydrate and flush the body with plenty of water.
