Chronic pain is one of the worst conditions that a person can suffer from – and it is often compounded by a patient not being able to find adequate relief. Many solutions that are offered to a patient include the use of strong prescription drugs, which tends to mask pain and perhaps cause more problems. A more natural, homeopathic remedy known as CranioSacral therapy treatment has been found to be effective with many of our patients here at Holistic Solutions.
Also known as CST, CranioSacral therapy is a very gentle, soft-touch approach to help rid the body of tension and stress. A combination of several different therapies including traditional massage, CST works to release tensions in all areas of the body, including the gastrointestinal tract, musculoskeletal systems, and the reproductive system. In addition to traditional massage, other techniques used with CST include Visceral Manipulation, Lymphatic Drainage, and Somato-Emotional release.
But what does this really mean, and how can it help a patient? What CST feels like is a series of natural and gentle holds around the face and neck. There is absolutely no pain involved in the procedure, and the goal is to slowly relieve pain throughout the nervous system and all areas of the body. Much more than just the power of suggestion, CranioSacral therapy works to relieve stress by tuning into the systems of the body, slowly releasing tension and pain.
Imagine a magnetic current being generated around an electric current. When the central nervous system is manipulated in such a way as to relieve tension and stress, every single system in the body is affected. The opposite of pain, CST methods begin the tension relief near the head and neck, affecting the central nervous system. As the central nervous system begins to relax, so do other areas of the body.
While CST treatment is reliable and safe, it should be noted that it should only be performed by a licensed therapist. The relaxation associated with CranioSacral therapy may take several full sessions before a patient experiences relief. Any patient that tries one session should give it several tries before giving up. Patients have reported that after a few sessions. CST treatment really has been life-changing.
Types of conditions that CST treatment can help include pain associated with fibromyalgia, back and neck pain, anxiety and stress-related pain, migraines, fatigue, and many more. Fundamentally, CST treatment can help with many different issues, beyond pain. Patients have also reported success after treatment in dealing with Attention Deficit Disorder and Post Traumatic Stress Disorder. While everyone’s results may vary, the relaxation associated with CST can help many different problems. Some patients have even reported help with infertility.
The therapeutic process of CST allows the brain to perform how it should, with stress and tension slowly sliding away from the body. Sessions are in a quiet, comfortable area and typically last one hour.
