Back by popular demand!

CranioSacral Therapy or CST is a light-touch approach that releases tensions deep in the body to relieve pain and dysfunction and improve whole-body health and performance. Every day you endure stress and strains and your body absorbs them. We are really treating our body hard. I call CST an emotional clearing method to get rid of blockages.

CST has the ability to lift restrictions throughout the nervous system assisting the flow of Cerebral Spinal Fluid and improving homeostasis. In regards to weight loss CST can assist the body physiologically and emotionally.

Physiologically, in CST we are improving the communication with the hypothalamus and through light cranial bone manipulation we can improve the body’s ability to reduce weight by:

1.Decreasing the Fight-or-Flight Response (decreasing cortisol levels, inflammation, stress, improved sleep, repetitive brain patterns, etc.)
2.Regulating hormones levels
3.Balancing the function of neurotransmitters
4.Increasing the function and stability of the digestive system, endocrine system, neuroendocrine system, immune system and many other systems of bodily functions
5.Produces and helps maintain a state of homeostasis

Emotionally, weight is often held by the body as a form of protection, created by fear, sadness or pain or as a result of past life events or trauma. We refer to this as an “Energy Cyst” or EC. In CST, we work directly with the Energy Cyst utilizing visualization and dialoguing techniques to evoke a response or Somato-Emotional Release (SER). Once the “event” is acknowledged and released the EC disperses and several positive things occur as a result:

1.Protection is no longer needed, the body “lets-go”
2.Repetitive negative patterns decrease or end completely
3.Cravings or addictive behaviors decrease
4.New patterns can now be established more easily in the body
5.A ripple effect occurs that establishes feelings of well-being, more positive outlook, increased confidence and empowerment.

I have witnessed weight loss occur as a “side effect” in most clients after receiving traditional CST/SER after a 1-6mth period on a regular basis. If used in conjunction with the CogniDiet utilizing techniques in *CranioSacral Therapy for the Digestive and Gastrointestinal Systems I would surmise that results would happen quicker and have a greater weight loss benefit.
