    Research and numerous case studies have shown that CranioSacral Therapy (CST) has been beneficial when treating physical, mental, and emotional injuries from traumas such as: combat, natural disasters, sports injuries, family violence, and acts of terrorism. Dr. John E. Upledger, the creator of CST, has said, PostTrauMatic Stress Disorder is NOT an incurable, hopeless mental disorder. PTSD has been shown to have physical roots. I hope you will join us in the years to come as we seek to eliminate PTSD from the trauma equation.

     CST is particularly effective for patients who have suffered any sort of insult to the brain, including concussion and head trauma. When CST is provided by an advanced therapist trained to evaluate and treat changes in the craniosacral system, and once cleared by the attending physician, a treatment plan can be started immediately. When CST is incorporated consistently throughout the acute and rehabilitation phases, longterm benefits and the potential for full recovery is maximized.

Test results support CST as an effective therapy to assist with:

  • Traumatic brain injury
  • Combat traumatic stress
  • Panic attacks
  • Insomnia
  • Flashbacks
  • Intrusive thoughts
  • Hypervigilance 
  • Depression
  • Suicidal thoughts
  • Guardedness
  • Behavioral isolation
  • Chronic anxiety 
  • Chronic pain issues

Results reported after CST treatment include: 

  • Reduced physical pain and discomfort
  • Reduced panic attacks
  • Significant improvement in insomnia and return to normal sleep patterns
  • Alleviation of hypervigilance and appropriate responses to the environment 
  • Discontinuance of intrusive thoughts and flashbacks
  • Memories recalled without the negative charge
  • Willingness to participate in healthy activities
  • Depression and suicidal thoughts reduced and even eliminated
  • Reduction in need of psychotropic medications, and in some instances, discontinuation over time
  • Return to clear mental functioning
  • Relationships with family and friends becoming meaningful again
  • End of social isolation and reconnecting with community

     Also developed by Dr. Upledger as an offshoot of CST. SomatoEmotional Release (SER) is a process that helps to release trapped emotional energy and facilitate the discharge of trauma and injury. The body frequently retains an emotional imprint of physical injury, especially of intense feelings. These emotional imprints often get deposited in the body, creating areas called energy cysts. The body can adapt to energy cysts, but as more stress builds throughout life, the body can lose its ability to accommodate, and uncomfortable symptoms often become more difficult to suppress. In those cases, an individual may experience SER during the CST session. The individual will often spontaneously move into the same position they were in when the injury occurred, as this allows the trapped emotional energy to escape along the same pathway its took when it entered the body. The tissues may soften and relax, and the body is free to return to optimal levels of functioning.
