This form of therapy focuses on regulating cerebrospinal fluid through therapeutic touch. Generally, the patient’s skull, face, spine and pelvis are the targeted touch points for the practitioner.
In the postpartum period, craniosacral therapy (CST) can ease the transition from being pregnant and delivering your baby by relieving discomfort from the ligaments, organs and muscles returning to their pre-pregnancy state.
CST can also help with hormonal balancing to reduce stress and increase energy for the new parent. CST may even alleviate some common postpartum problems such as mastitis.
