CranioSacral therapy (CST) is a gentle, hands-on bodywork that examines the membranes and movement of fluid in and around the central nervous system which in turn affects the whole body and its systems. The therapist palpates and determines the areas of dysfunction in the body and using a light touch enables the body to release any restrictions in the fascia, bones and membranes.
CST can help with a wide range of problems including chronic pain, migraine headache, neurodegenerative diseases, stroke, facial and head trauma, TMJ problems, whiplash, menstrual problems, skeleto-muscular issues, speech problems and many others. Because CST is tightly connected to our nervous system, deeper emotional issues and cognitive functions, stress, anxiety and PTSD might be addressed during or after the treatment.
CST is thought to improve efficiency of biological processes through boosting inherent self-regulation, self-correction and self-healing. The therapy can be used successfully with children and adults. As CST works on the whole body, the changes might be experienced on a physical, emotional, mental or spiritual level.
Another aspect of CST is working with trauma (physical and emotional).

" Itka's sessions of this miraculous treatment as I call it, helped me to ease my chronic pain I have had for ages. There was heat coming from my back, there were some "openings happening" in my head . At some point of the session, out of nowhere I had some insights about my life situation and an understanding why it is happening. I never had a treatment addressing so many different aspects of myself."
