All About Reflexology at Black Rock Therapies
What are the benefits of Craniosacral Therapy?
The personal experience of each individual in a CST session is highly unique. Generally, these sessions promote deep relaxation, evoking sensations of warmth or gentle pulsations in the specific areas where the therapist applies their attention. By unburdening the central nervous system and optimizing its functionality, CST naturally alleviates pain and reduces stress levels, while simultaneously fortifying your body's defenses against illness. Ultimately, it contributes to enhanced overall health, well-being, and vitality.
How does Craniosacral Therapy work?
Our therapists start by gently palpating different areas of your body to assess the rhythm of the fluid circulating around your central nervous system. This enables them to identify any areas of compromised fluid flow or tissue motion and trace the underlying cause of dysfunction. Subtle manual techniques are then employed to alleviate these issues and enhance the body's overall form and function.
