CranioSacral Therapy was developed by John E. Upledger, an Osteopathic Physician, after years of research at Michigan State University. CranioSacral Therapy, or CST, is a form of gentle healing that is a hands-on therapy. It was developed to release deep body tension, pain, discomfort, dysfunction, and restore health to the whole body of a patient.

CranioSacral Therapy Practitioners, like Catherine Powell, use gentle touch to release restriction in the soft tissue that surround the central nervous system. CST can also be used as a general health technique to boost the immune system and resistance to disease.

The craniosacral system is comprised of membranes and fluids surrounding the brain and spinal cord. This system of the body heavily influences the central nervous system. By alleviating restrictions in the craniosacral system, CST can alleviate a variety of conditions including: Migraines and Headaches, Stress and Tension-Related Disorders, Infant and childhood disorders, Motor-Coordination Impairments, Chronic Neck and Back Pain, Brain and Spinal Cord Injuries, Chronic Fatigue, Fibromyalgia, TMJ Syndrome, Scoliosis, Disorders of the Central Nervous System, Learning Disabilities, Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder, Orthopedic Impairments, and a variety of other conditions.

When setting up your initial appointment with Healing Meridians, be sure to fill the Healing Meridians office in with the types of ailments you are suffering from. Dr. Powell and Catherine will help you to decide which treatments will work best for you.
