Welcome to Flagstaff CranioSacral Center

What is CranioSacral Therapy (CST) :

CST is a very gentle, light touch modality which releases restrictions from the central nervous system so that every other system in the body can relax, self -correct and free itself from discomfort and pain. CST relieves stress, releases emotions, address traumas, brings hope, peace and makes you feel good about being yourself.  CST is safe for all ages and conditions as:

  • Migraines/ Headaches
  • Depression/ Anxiety
  • Chronic Pain/ Fatigue
  • Fibromyalgia
  • TMJ Syndrome
  • Post Traumatic Stress Disorder
  • Pre and Post Surgery
  • Orthopedic Trauma
  • MS/ Neurological Diseases
  • And Many Other Conditions

CST for Pregnancy:

From conception to birthing CST can improve mom's health, empower mother and baby and  facilitates a positive birth experience.

CST helps balance the mother's emotional body by relieving stress and body memories of past emotional and physical traumas. It provides a special time for mother to deepens her connection to baby, as she can safely express fears and concerns about the transition to motherhood.
