It is still beyond me how something so simple can have such powerful results.
The Power of Touch
What is Craniosacral Therapy?
Craniosacral Therapy (CST) is a profound, non-invasive, healing process that works through gentle touch to release stress, disturbance, injury and deep-seated trauma. It is known to benefit an entire range of problems, from minor aches and pains to severe chronic conditions.
It restores balance across the various systems of the body-mind system transforming it back to a state of vibrant health. And for those who are already feeling healthy, it boosts all the systems of the body bringing another level of well-being within them.
CST is a holistic technique that works through the various levels in the body impacting the musculoskeletal, nervous, cardio-vascular, circulatory and immune systems as well as the organs, tissues and fasciae. It triggers the body’s self-healing mechanisms to relieve diseases, symptoms and root causes.
If you scratch yourself, or get some cut or small wound, in a few days time, your body manages to heal itself. If you scratch yourself on your thigh, the cells that grow back over there are thigh cells, not for example, nose cells or eye cells. The body has an innate intelligence and enjoys good health and it forever wants to be in that state of vibrant health.
Many times, we abuse our body by disrupting its natural rhythms (not sleeping or eating on time), over indulging (eating wrong types of food, working too hard, etc) and consuming obvious poisons like non-veg food, alcohol, tobacco or recreational drugs causing it terrible stress. Accidents, bugs, illnesses and other mishaps all contribute to the assault on it.
The body is a brilliant piece of engineering and most times manages to bounce back to health, albeit, with a few leftovers of distress. These distresses pile up over time causing our immune systems to break down and creates disease.
However, there is a vast intelligence in the body and almost infinite resources available if only you could tap into them. Craniosacral Therapy acts as a catalyst for you to tap into your own system, use resources available to you, and create great health. Of course, lifestyle changes would need to happen alongside CST for it to have a more dramatic, permanent effect.
Through touch, a skilled therapist can figure out what’s wrong in the body and bring about balance and harmony in the body by supplementing its own drive towards great health.
Get out of your head and into your body, let’s see what the system knows how to do.

There are many approaches that have been developed over the years towards the practice of Craniosacral Therapy – the Biodynamic and Biomechanical being the chief bifurcations.
In our training we take best practices from both the approaches and combine them into an integrated experience for our students and clients.
Our training is mainly based on the classical texts of Osteopathy and Craniosacral therapy written by Dr. Andrew Taylor Still, Dr. William Sutherland, Dr. Harold Magoun, Dr. T. M. Littlejohn and Dr. Rollin Becker. We refer to texts by Michael Kern, Franklyn Sills, Cherionna Menzan-Sills, Roger Gilchrist, Hugh Milne and Thomas Atlee as well.
This knowledge is expertly woven with philosophy and techniques from Indian Spirituality, inspired by Gurudev Sri Sri Ravi Shankar, to create a one-of-a-kind learning experience for our students. We are the only school in the world offering a program like this.
Vibrant bouncy health awaits one who learns and practices Craniosacral Therapy.
