THERAPEUTIC MASSAGE THERAPY AND CRANIOSACRAL THERAPY....Craniosacral therapy has the potential of providing excellent relief to many so-called "medical basket-cases" that some in the medical profession have basically tossed aside saying "There is nothing that can be done for you."
I often precede CST with therapeutic massage to bring a deeper relaxation to the body and release tight muscles/tension to better enhance the CST results.
is becoming more widely known around the country since Dr. John Upledger first developed these wonderful, light, non-invasive techniques in the early 1970's. 
It is the belief of CST Praticioners, like myself, that low-risk and high-benefit therapeutic techniques are of tremendous benefit to many who suffer with painful conditions.  And, craniosacral therapy is not painful like some types of massage/muscle treatments. Nor is it toxic to the body as are most prescription medications. 
As Dr. Jon Vredevoogd stated, "Nature makes the best designs.  Every design in nature is for a purpose and is the most efficient way to accomplish a task.  We should study the way nature does things and try to emulate it, rather the clumsily and egotistically trying to invent our own.  We cannot improve on natural design; we need only understand it."
