CranioSacral Therapy (CST) is a gentle, hands-on approach that releases tensions deep in the body to relieve pain and dysfunction and improve whole-body health and performance.
It was pioneered and developed by Osteopathic Physician John E. Upledger after years of clinical testing and research at Michigan State University where he served as professor of biomechanics.
Using a soft touch which is generally no greater than 5 grams – about the weight of a nickel – practitioners release restrictions in the soft tissues that surround the central nervous system. CST is increasingly used as a preventive health measure for its ability to bolster resistance to disease, and it's effectiveness in treating a wide range of medical problems associated with pain and dysfunction.
Jeremy has practiced CST since 1999, initially helping adults manage chronic pain and dysfunction. He started working with newborns 8 years into his practice as he became involved with pediatricians, midwives, doulas and lactation consultants in the community to help address breast-feeding challenges, sleep and digestive issues, early spinal concerns with newborns as well as post-traumatic stress response from difficult births and pregnancies. He also works with the pediatric community with toddlers and children with a wide-array of health challenges and for overall system support.
