CRANIO SACRAL THERAPY: Cranio Sacral Therapy (CST) is a gentle, hands-on-approach that release tensions deep in the body to relieve pain and dysfunction and improve whole-body health and performance. It was pioneered and developed by Osteopathic Physician John E. Upledge after years of clinical testing and research at Michigan State University where he served as professor of biomechanics. Using a soft touch which is generally no greater than 5 grams-about the weight of a nickel - practitioners release restrictions in the soft tissues that surround the central nervous system. CST is increasingly used as a preventive health measure for its ability to bolster resistance to disease, and it's effective for a wide range of medical problems associated with pain and dysfunction.
ACUPUNCTURE: Acupuncture involves the insertion of extremely thin needles in your body. Acupuncture originated in China thousands of years ago, but over the past three decades its popularity has grown significantly within the United States.Traditional Chinese theory explains acupuncture as a technique for balancing the flow of energy or life force known as qi or chi (chee) believed to flow through pathways (meridians) in your body. By inserting needles into specific points along these meridians, acupuncture practitioners believe that your energy flow will re-balance. In contrast, many Western practitioners view the acupuncture points as places to stimulate nerves, muscles and connective tissue. This stimulation appears to boost the activity of your body's natural painkillers and increase blood flow.
