What is CST?

CranioSacral Therapy (CST) was pioneered and developed by osteopathic physician John E. Upledger following extensive scientific studies from 1975 to 1983 at Michigan State University, where he served as a clinical researcher and Professor of Biomechanics.


CST is a gentle, hands-on method of evaluating and enhancing the functioning of a physiological body system called the craniosacral system - comprised of the membranes and cerebrospinal fluid that surround and protect the brain and spinal cord.


Using a soft touch generally no greater than 5 grams, or about the weight of a 20p piece, practitioners release restrictions in the craniosacral system to improve the functioning of the central nervous system.


By complementing the body's natural healing processes, CST is increasingly used as a preventive health measure for its ability to bolster resistance to disease, and is effective for a wide range of medical problems associated with pain and dysfunction.

Fiona Gilbraith is available on a Monday and Wednesday in the clinic. She offers a free half hour consultation before starting treatment for both parties to assess whether treatment is appropriate.

In addition we are able to offer CST sessions with a student practitioner who is currently undertaking qualification with the Upledger Institute UK


These sessions are a good way of introducing yourself to CST if you are curious about having treatment as they are not only safe, relaxing and fun; but they are also available at a much reduced rate. 


Have a look at our student treatment page for further details.
