An excerpt from the book: “The Out-of-Sync Child,” by Carol Stock Kranowitz, M.A.
CranioSacral Therapy (CST) is a gentle method of evaluating and enhancing the function of the craniosacral system (the membranes and cerebrospinal fluid that protect the brain and spinal cord). CST involves light-touch manipulation of the bones in the skull, sacrum, and coccyx to correct an imbalance that can adversely affect the development of the brain and spinal cord and can result in sensory, motor, and neurological dysfunction. Developed by Dr. John Upledger, CST is used by a variety of health care professionals. See www.upledger.com
