Cranio Sacral Therapy Hong Kong
Cranio sacral therapy uses a light touch to examine membranes and movement of fluids in and around the central nervous system. It stimulates the cerebrospinal fluid in the brain called CSF.
Relieving tension in the central nervous system promotes a feeling of well-being by eliminating pain and boosting health and immunity.
The focus of Cranio sacral therapy is a gentle placement of hands to assist release of the body’s connective tissue, or “fascia.” Fascia is a covering found throughout the body including organs, glands, nerves, muscles, blood vessels, brain and spinal cord. This covering forms a body-wide connective network. CST is based on the idea that the body is interrelated at all levels.
CST is thought to improve efficiency of biological processes through boosting inherent self-regulation, self-correction and self-healing. The therapy can be used successfully on children and adults.
Cranio sacral therapy can be used for people of all ages.
It may be part of your treatment for conditions like:
migraines and headaches
disturbed sleep cycles and insomnia
recurrent ear infections or colic in infants
trauma recovery, including trauma from whiplash
mood disorders like anxiety or depression
