CST is an incredibly gentle form of treatment that involves the use light touch on the body to relieve tension and discomfort. By gently applying light pressure to certain areas of the body, including the head and tail bone, the body is able to release restrictions that can prevent normal movement and function. CST is so gentle it is often used on babies to alleviate problems such as colic and other digestion issues. By releasing the tight restrictions in the body, the Sympathetic or “Fight Flight” nervous system is able to calm down, giving the body a tremendous sense of relaxation. It is therefore incredibly effective in the treatment of stress and anxiety.
