All the different methods and techniques I am privileged to draw from as a teacher & practitioner today, made my own full recovery from severe surgical and consequently emotional trauma possible.
CranioSacral Therapy (CST) is a gentle, hands-on method of evaluating and enhancing the functioning of a physiological body system called the craniosacral system – comprising the inter-cranial membranes and cerebrospinal fluid that surround and protect the brain and spinal cord.
How it is applied
Using a soft touch, practitioners release restrictions in the craniosacral system and the connective tissue to improve the functioning of the central nervous system and the whole fascial matrix. The client remains fully clothed, will mainly lie on the back, pelvis and legs covered with a light blanket.
CST was pioneered and developed by osteopathic physician John E. Upledger following extensive scientific studies from 1975 to 1983 at Michigan State University, where he served as a clinical researcher and Professor of Biomechanics.
Possibilities of healing
By complementing the body's natural healing processes, CST is increasingly used as a preventive health measure for its ability to bolster resistance to disease, and is effective for a wide range of medical problems associated with pain and dysfunction.
Alexander established his practice 14 years ago and has been trained in CranioSacral Therapy CST I, CST II, SER I, SER II, TIDI, CST & the Immune Response, The Brain Speaks I & II, Advanced I & Advanced II.
