Are you frustrated with nagging, chronic pain? Do you take non-prescription or prescription medication daily to dial down such pain? Are you worried about the potential harmful side effects of long-term use of this medication on your health? Do you want to explore more natural approaches to get relief?
We are fortunate to live in an age that offers many medications for pain treatment--over-the-counter drugs such as Aleve and Tylenol, and a variety of prescription medications such as muscle relaxants, antidepressants, anti-anxiety agents, antiseizure agents, opioids, and corticosteroids. Unfortunately, side effects that are harmful to our bodies are associated with such pain relievers. Depending on the drug, side effects include potential liver damage, gastrointestinal ulceration and bleeding, vascular problems, constipation, headaches, nightmares, dizziness, nervousness, nausea, psychological changes, swelling, and dependence, to name a few.
CranioSacral Therapy (CST) helps to identify and address the cause of your pain rather than simply treating the symptom. CST encourages your body's central nervous system and innate healing processes to move towards balance; it works on a cellular level with all your tissues--nerves, skin, muscles, bones, connective tissue, organs, fluids; it helps your body to deeply relax, release accumulated tension and holding, and gently self-correct. This promotes naturally decreased stress and pain, so that you can move more freely and do more of what you love.
