Craniosacral Therapy (CST) helps with the body’s self-maintaining mechanism to affect many structures and physiological systems to achieve better health and well being. Craniosacral Therapy involves mobilizing restrictions within the cranium and the sacrum. Due to the anatomical connections, the approach focuses on the whole body. Craniosacral Therapy is grounded in the practice of Osteopathy.
We liken Craniosacral therapy’s effects to those that would be attained with an Acupuncture session or a meditation session. The Cranium and sacrum are affected in a way to influence the dura mater of the spine as well as the facial layers in the body to induce relaxation of the nervous system in order to get the body into its optimal healing capability.
Once the body is in its optimal healing state, real change can happen! Our patients (especially ones with Chronic Pain) frequently incorporate craniosacral therapy into their treatment program and see a big difference in their pain and ability to relax.

More on Craniosacral Therapy:
The Craniosacral system contains your brain and spinal cord, otherwise known as the central nervous system. It’s a semi-closed hydraulic system that connects your head with your tailbone (or sacrum). The pressure fluctuations creates a rhythm, this is part of the production and reabsorption of cerebrospinal fluid.
Craniosacral therapy is revolutionary in its gentle yet powerful treatment of the extremely important Craniosacral system. The therapy is hands-on (manual) and utilizes light touch to treat restrictions that would usually limit normal mobility. Reducing restrictions like this improves overall health and function in the system. This hands-on approach is especially useful for restoring equilibrium in the system. This treatment helps with a large range of complaints including, but not limited to, the following:
Dr. Carly offers this specialized approach and is especially skilled with integrating this into helping patients who are suffering with many of the typical musculoskeletal problems she sees.
