Craniosacral Therapy

CST

Craniosacral Therapy (CST) is a gentle technique used primarily on our pediatric patients and can be used on adults as well. The technique applies gentle and sustained pressure, the same pressure as checking if a fruit is ripe, to the sutures of the cranium, spine and ligaments of the sacrum. 

The brain and spinal cord is encase in a sac called the dura sac. This sac is attached to the bones of the head and sacrum. Inside the dura sac, cerebral spinal fluid (CSF) flows and pulses. When the cranial bones or sacrum are stuck, subluxated or have decreased motion, the fluid does not circulate properly. CST restores that motion by releasing tension the the sutures and spine. 

Very few structures have as much influence over the body's ability to function properly such as the brain and spinal cord, as well as the membranes and fluid that surround, protect and nourish the brain and spinal cord.

Every day your body endures stresses and strains that it must work to compensate for. In infants, this could be due to the birthing process, tight oral tissue, torticollis,  plagiocephaly, and subluxations just to name a few. These changes often cause body tissues to tighten and distort the craniosacral system. This can create a barrier to the healthy performance of the central nervous system, and potentially every other system it interacts with. Our soft-touch techniques are then used to release restrictions in any tissues influencing the craniosacral system. This normalizing the environment around the brain and spinal cord and enhancing the body's ability to self-correct dysfunctions and imbalances. CST is the preferred technique used on our infant patients.

  • "I’m so glad I found Natural Life.. I just wish I would have during my pregnancy. They have been so beneficial for myself post pregnancy and for my newborn. The whole team is so passionate, thorough and caring and that’s hard to come by. It’s so good to find a place that takes such good care of children, too! I'm glad to refer my friends here so I had to share a great review, too."

  • "I have been under Dr. Carri’s care for 10 yrs. She’s been wonderful through all 3 of my pregnancies and has adjusted and cared for all my babies and husband. (Branching out into lots of my family members and friends becoming patients of hers as well)

    Her staff is lovely and kind and the office is such a relaxing environment. It’s a family friendly place and children are ALWAYS welcomed with smiles and excitement. Dr. Carri is thorough and patient. I would recommend her care to anyone and everyone. Also, there is an amazing masseuse on staff and she is worth every penny!"

  • "This review is long overdue. Dr. Sai is truly amazing. She was the first chiro I have ever been to and first saw her when I was about 30 weeks pregnant. She is so down to earth and cool. I was always having back aches and just the normal discomforts of pregnancy. Every time I left I felt re-energized to take on the days to come. I also truly feel all the care I received through Dr. Sai and the "webster technique" led to be being in labor for 12 hours start to finish and pushing baby out in 25 min as a first time mom. Dr. Carri and Natalie at the front desk are also so amazing and welcoming. It makes coming here a pleasure!!"

  • "I love it here! Very friendly and welcoming to the little ones. They care about all aspects of your life to make sure they give you the best care possible. This practice truly got me through my last two pregnancies! I would not have been able to MANAGE THE PAIN from 5 months until birth and after: Baby was always in correct position thanks to Webster. All their drs are fantastic! They've always been extremely accommodating and understanding. Love them!"
