Sally Barber offers CranioSacral Therapy (CST) in the soothing atmosphere of the Westfield Yoga Center. She utilized this form of treatment during her career as an Occupational Therapist, having extensively studied Dr John Upledger's work. CranioSacral Therapy uses gentle touch (often about the weight of a nickel) to influence soft tissues and the central nervous system. According to Upledger Institute literature, "CranioSacral Therapy is a light touch approach that can create dramatic improvements in your life. It releases tensions deep in the body to relieve pain and dysfunction...[the techniques] allow the entire body to relax and self-correct...freeing the central nervous system to function at its best.
CranioSacral Therapy naturally eliminates pain and stress, strengthens your resistance to disease, and enhances your health and well being..."
A wide range of conditions are treated effectively by CranioSacral Therapy. These include chronic neck and back pain, sciatica, Post Traumatic Stress Disorder, TMJ Syndrome, headaches, stress and tension related disorders, ADD / ADHD, and post-concussion symptoms.
You can plan on 90 minutes for your initial visit and 60 minute sessions thereafter.
The room is quiet and peaceful, ideal for relaxing deeply. You will be fully clothed resting on a comfortable, padded table.
CranioSacral Therapy honors the innate wisdom of your body. It taps into or enhances the body's own awesome ability for self-correction and healing.
