What is CranioSacral Therapy?
1: a light-touch, whole-body treatment technique developed by John E. Upledger, DO, OMM; works with the body’s craniosacral system to support and nourish the central nervous system — improving overall health and well-being.
2: a complementary method of hands-on bodywork; works with the natural and unique rhythms of the different body systems to pinpoint and address problem sources.
3: helps to alleviate the aches, pains and strains of life; improves coping mechanisms to allow for better management of stress.
4: improves the body’s ability to self-care; can produce profound, positive changes.

My friend and colleague, Kate Mackinnon, has written a book entitled From my Hands and Heart: Achieving Health and Balance with Craniosacral Therapy. Kate "interweaves her personal journey of using CST with case studies and detailed, easy-to-understand explanations of the theory behind it. Whether you’ve never heard of CST before, thought it didn’t apply to you, or are currently undergoing treatments, this book has something for you. Kate guides you through creating a team of practitioners focused on your well-being, and explains how to help yourself at home between sessions. You’ll learn simple, safe techniques that almost anyone can perform and receive. Most important, you’ll gain a deeper understanding of the amazing powers of the human body and how, with individualized support through CST, it can find its own way to balance and health." This book is a great resource for therapists, existing clients, prospective clients, and those interested in finding out more about Craniosacral Therapy.
