About Craniosacral Therapy (CST)
CranioSacral Therapy (CST) is a very gentle form of manual treatment that addresses the membranes surrounding the brain and central nervous system. This membrane is called the dura membrane.
CST also works with the environment of the brain, the cerebral spinal fluid and its rhythmic movements, as well as the bony structures that encase this system (the cranial bones, the vertebral column, and the sacrum). Similar to the dynamics of visceral adhesions described above, when there is an adhesion of the dura membrane there will be an alteration in the rhythmic flow of the cerebral spinal fluid as well as the ability of the brain and spinal nerves to move and function properly.
Each of these forms of manual therapy are unique in and of themselves, but an integration of the two provides something all together more profound. This effective therapy will not attempt to overpower the body’s innate abilities to heal but will support and provide gentle direction.
The organ and dura systems consist of reactive tissues that respond quickly to gentle, precise and experienced manipulation. Through years of hands-on experience and his dedication to study Dr. Mariotti has developed a unique way of integrating these two forms of therapy. This allows him to uncover the root cause of your issues and treat them with greater and lasting results.
Although VM/CST are physical therapies working with physical structures this is not to say they do not work on the emotional and energy systems in the body. These systems are intimately connected and to alter one is to provide freedom and space in all others. After receiving VM/CST most people report an enhanced sense of wellbeing as well as an overall sense of spaciousness in their bodies, a decrease in symptoms, a reduction in pain, and a sense of emotional harmony.
Dr. Mariotti has successfully treated a vast array of conditions using this unique combination of VM/CST, such as; brain trauma, motor vehicle accidents, traumatic injury, emotional trauma, cardiovascular disease, digestive complaints, bladder and pelvic organ issues of all types, gallbladder disease, birth trauma, adhesions due to surgery, and musculoskeletal symptoms. Typically, results are experienced rather quickly and only a small number of sessions are required.
