Basics of CranioSacral Therapy

by TJ Mallet

For those who haven’t heard of CranioSacral Therapy (CST), it’s a gentle, light touch, fully clothed whole body routine. A CST therapist works with the body’s craniosacral system which produces and houses cerebral spinal fluid. This fluid supports and nourishes the central nervous system (brain and spinal cord). The techniques commonly used were developed by osteopathic physician, Dr. John E. Upledger (1932-2012).

The focus during treatment is on improving the structure of the body—in particular the central nervous system—so the body as a whole can work at its highest level. When the body’s connective tissue (fascia) is out of balance in any way, the entire body in some manner is affected. Auto accidents, operations, poor diet, compounded daily stress, acute emotional trauma can all affect this delicately balanced fabric resulting in headaches, chronic neck and back pain, PTSD, stress and chronic fatigue, among other ailments.
It was through this therapy that TJ Mallet, LMT, CST, VMP, of Total Balance 4 U, was able to alleviate her own chronic pain. To that end, she is passionate in assisting others with alleviating their pain and restoring them to vitality and vibrant health.
