What is Craniosacral Therapy?

Craniosacral Therapy (CST) is a holistic form of bodywork that focuses on the craniosacral system, which comprises the brain, spinal cord, and surrounding cerebrospinal fluid. This gentle hands-on therapy aims to release restrictions in the system and enhance the body's self-healing abilities.

During a CST session, the therapist uses light touch to feel for areas of tension or restriction in the craniosacral system. They may use various techniques such as gentle pressure or traction to release these restrictions and restore the natural movement and rhythm of the system.

CST is based on the principle that the body has an inherent capacity for self-correction and healing. By facilitating this process, CST may help alleviate a wide range of conditions, including chronic pain, stress, headaches, and digestive disorders.

From my home office in Kitsilano

I am Carissa Joy,

Its true, I've struggled with my own health as long as I can remember. I wasn't gifted with strong genes. But I have to admit, part of me is grateful for the journey. Going through my own challenges was what put me on a path to learn all that I could about holistic health and is why I do the work I do. And I LOVE it!
