What is Craniosacral Therapy?
Craniosacral Therapy (CST), also known as craniosacral therapy, 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.
What are the benefits of Craniosacral Therapy?
Craniosacral Therapy treats people rather than conditions. It is primarily concerned with establishing a healthy, balanced underlying state which enables the body’s own healing mechanisms to operate at optimum level, and therefore to restore health.
Craniosacral Therapy connects you to your core, your Essence, your true nature, helping you to gain the a sense of pervading well-being. You will feel calm, centered and focused, and experience improved mind-body unity, as well as strengthened nervous, immune and hormonal systems.
Defining the Term: Biodynamic Craniosacral Therapy

The Essence of Cranio-Sacral Biodynamics
Heart Rate Variablity (HRV)
Stimulating the 10th cranial nerve (vagus nerve) may treat arthritis, heart failure, and headaches. Cranial adjustments work directly with the Autonomic Nervous System thereby improving HRV.
“The Heart Rate Variablity (HRV test of Autonomic Function) drives Longevity”
— American Journal of Cardiology, 2016
“The reality of creating a healthy world for mankind is to make sure the Autonomic Nervous System is not in a continual sympathetic state and adopt ways to naturally enable the body for health and restoration…not defense!” — Stephen Porges, PHD

Dr. Feldman does more than treat symptoms
I came to Dr. Feldman after re-injuring an old neck and back injury. Pain from the original injury has been with me off and on for over four years, and the re-injury had severely limited my range of motion and was affecting every aspect of my life. After an initial chiropractic adjustment, we did an intensive course of cranio-sacral therapy over several weeks. During the therapy, I discovered how the neck injury was tied into other parts of my physical and emotional well-being. The result has been much more satisfying and durable relief, and I am more optimistic now about my long-term well-being than I have been in a very long time. Dr. Feldman does more than treat symptoms — he is genuinely concerned with the complete and lasting health of his patients.
