Craniosacral therapy

Our craniosacral therapy sessions begin with a consultation with our practitioner Catherine Cusumano, M.S., L.Ac. Catherine will help you identify what you are looking to address such as pain, migraines, or other emotional or physical health issues. Music and low lighting are used to increase your state of relaxation. Similar to a massage, except you stay fully clothed, Catherine will use gentle pressure, guided by your body’s communication, to release disruptions and/or restrictions in your fascial system. Many people experience deep relaxation and may have emotional releases as well as physical ones during craniosacral therapy.

CST has proven to be helpful for managing:

  • Chronic pain

  • Migraine headaches or chronic tension headaches

  • Neck pain

  • May help minimize the effects from cancer treatment

  • Fascial adhesions in various areas of the body

  • Post-concussion syndrome

  • Fibromyalgia

  • Menopause symptoms

  • Temporo-mandibular joint (TMJ) syndrome

What is craniosacral therapy?


The fluid that surrounds and cushions your brain is the same fluid that moves around the nerves in your spinal cord. There is constant communication between your brain and nervous system. However, when we have a trauma, whether that’s a physical trauma or an illness, this communication can get interrupted or imbalanced.


Using very gentle pressure, usually starting at the base of the head and the sacrum in the low back, the “swish” of fluid can be restored to a balanced flow. This allows the nervous system to communicate with the brain. By relieving tension in the central nervous system, a feeling of well-being, pain reduction, and a boost in immunity are activated.

How does it work?


The main focus of CST is gentle pressure that helps release the body’s connective tissue. This connective tissue is called fascia. Fascia covers our organs, glands, nerves, muscles, blood vessels, and the brain and spinal cord. It forms a connective network throughout the body.


The body has many ways to maintain homeostasis; sweating, shivering, hunger pangs, etc. Releasing the tension in fascia allows all systems of the body to communicate thus allowing the efficiency of biological processes intrinsic to homeostasis and self-healing.

Are there contraindications?

As with any therapy that moves fluid and releases visceral tension, there are times when CST is not advised, including: 

  • Any disorder that causes instability of cerebral fluid pressure, flow or build-up

  • Structural defects that affect the brain or spine, ie, Spina Bifida or Arnold-Chiari malformation

  • Pregnancy, any stage

  • Recent concussion

  • Brain aneurysm

  • Traumatic brain injuries

  • Blood clots
