CranioSacral Therapy

Nancy Burke CST Education & Training

CranioSacral Therapy is a light touch approach that can release tensions deep in the body to relieve pain and dysfunction and improve your health. The craniosacral system consists of the bones of the head and the spine down to the sacrum, the membrane system underneath the bones, the cerebral spinal fluid, and the spinal cord and brain. The techniques used in the therapy gently address the overall craniosacral system. Stress and strain are absorbed by the body and can tighten the tissues which may affect the brain and spinal cord. Such tensions can affect the function of the nervous system as well as other systems in the body.

As the CranioSacral Therapy releases tensions, it allows the body to self correct. This therapy is effective for everyone, from newborns to the elderly. The gentle touch of working with the bones as handles to release the cerebral spinal fluid enables it to flow well through the membrane system. Areas of concern in the body are identified so that the sources of dysfunction can be worked with by the therapist. As techniques are applied, areas of discomfort and dysfunction are released and the central nervous system will therefore function more effectively.

Acupressure uses finger and thumb pressure to work with specific points within the body (acupoints) promoting the flow of energy (qi) through the body's energy channels (meridians). Qi (or energy) circulates around the body through the fourteen acupuncture meridians. There are thousands of acupoints located along the different meridians in the body, all of which are associated with specific organs. Acupressure concentrates on stimulating the same acupoints as acupuncture, using the hands instead of needles. Acupressure is used to relieve various ailments and promote general health and harmony within the body by encouraging the flow of qi.

Flower Essences

Flower essences are dilutions of flower material originally developed by Edward Bach, an English physician and homeopath, in the 1930s. Flower essences are intended to alleviate negative emotional states that may contribute to illness or hinder personal growth. Drops of a solution infused with the captured "essence" of a flower are placed under the tongue or in a beverage. Flower essences are dilute liquid extracts of various flowers and plants in an herbal infusion or decoction form used to treat animals and people. They address emotional and mental issues in a manner similar to the principles of homeopathy.

Extracts from flowering plants in homeopathic proportions are used as catalysts for healing. Each liquid preparation carries the imprint of a specific plant that speaks a subtle language which works on the root causes of disease.

Herbalism is a traditional medicine or folk medicine practice based on the use of plants and plant extracts that work with many disorders and help maintain good health. Many plants synthesize substances that are useful to the maintenance of health in humans and animals.

Chinese herbal formulas are a major aspect of traditional Chinese medicine, which focuses on restoring a balance of energy, body, and spirit to maintain health rather than treating a particular disease or medical condition. Herbs are used with the goal of restoring balance by nourishing the body. Nancy uses Chinese herbal formulas and flower essences as an adjunct to the bodywork she practices.
