Frequently Asked Questions

Q: How often should I come for craniosacral therapy? 

A: This is can be very different for every person, and your practitioner will work with you to develop a treatment plan, but to begin we generally recommend a treatment every two weeks. The healing processes that are initiated in the treatment will continue to take effect for about two weeks after the initial treatment, therefore we do not recommend having another treatment any sooner when you’re first starting. 

 

Q: How long are the treatments? 

A: We offer 60 and 90 minute treatments for adults, and 30 and 45 minute treatments for children. 

 

Q: What can I expect to feel during the treatment? 

A: People can experience a wide range of feelings and emotional releases during treatment; however, the most common feelings are warmth, relaxation, a light twitching sensation, and tingling. People report feeling very “out of it” after a treatment, and extremely energized the next day! 

 

Q: Do I have to be undressed for the treatment? 

A: No, CST is performed fully clothed. 

 

Q: What kind of conditions can CST treat?
