Craniosacral Therapy (CST) is a light-touch, hands-on therapy that enhances the body’s natural capacity for healing. It is a profound healing process which can release the deeply held patterns of disease – both physical and psychological – which accumulate throughout life as a result of injury and illness and become held into the body tissues, leading to ill-health and dysfunction.

Defining the Term: Biodynamic Craniosacral Therapy
Franklyn Sills Explains Craniosacral Therapy
The Essence of Cranio-Sacral Biodynamics
Release in Craniosacral Therapy has led to greater ease, and even courage and resilience in times of hardship.
Doing this work, while there are undoubted physiological benefits, I have also found the emotional psychological discoveries to be especially rewarding and healing. I have felt unnamed emotional blockages which then manifest physically, begin to dissolve. I can feel how these blockages, compromising our psychological system, and thus making us too overwhelmed or fragile to courageously confront life’s inevitable difficulties, which further fuels unhealthy emotions, habits and views. Releasing these in Craniosacral Therapy has led to greater ease, and even courage and resilience in times of hardship. Some of the physical sensations have been bursts of tingling electricity throughout the body, which for me has a bit of an edge to it. Deepening relaxation and regulation of breathing has also come up. The modern world provides a challenge to physical and mental integration, i.e. wellbeing and stability. I think this work will open up new areas within people for those who decide to explore it.
I hope more people become aware of the benefits of both your cranial and Feldenkrais work!
After my hour session with Dr. Feldman on February 7, 2022, which included Feldenkrais and cranial work, I felt tired so I took a 45-minute nap. Not yet ready to fully wake up, I slept another 45 minutes at which point I started feeling releases in my lower extremities, releases that I feel when Dr. Feldman works on the cranial portion of my session. The releases continued for an hour, and I just gave in to them. As the evening progressed, I felt very relaxed and peaceful. The next morning, I felt as if I had gone through a rebirth or reawakening! I feel more like myself, more how I used to feel, more positive, light and open. These feelings are a part of me now. Thank you, Dr. Feldman, for this experience and those at your office. I hope more people become aware of the benefits of both your cranial and Feldenkrais work!
