How CranioSacral Therapy can help PTSD

How CranioSacral Therapy can help PTSD

CranioSacral PTSD Auburn

What is PTSD?

Post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD) is a complex condition involving the body, mind and spirit. Though most often associated with our military veterans, PTSD is an anxiety disorder that can affect anyone with a history of trauma.  Trauma can be the result of childhood injury or abuse, an accident or a number of other life experiences that create a painful trigger that is repeatedly is activated throughout life.  When the body/mind has not yet recognized that the event is over, the sympathetic nervous system (fight/flight) is activated and the body responds by continuously mobilizing muscles and other body systems in an attempt to numb the pain.CranioSacral PTSD Auburn

Individuals who suffer from chronic PTSD also have physical changes in their brain, most notably, a decrease in brain activity in the prefrontal cortex (higher level thinking and language) and increase in amygdala activity (emotional).  The physical brain changes are described further in this article in the NCBI database as a  “heightened activity only in the right hemisphere, specifically, in the areas that are most involved in emotional arousal – the amygdala, insula, and the medial temporal lobe. During exposure to their traumatic scripts there was a significant decrease in activation of the left inferior frontal area – Broca’s area – which is thought to be responsible for translating personal experiences into communicable language.” 

How can CranioSacral Therapy help?

The CranioSacral System is made up of membranes and fluid that surround, protect and nourish the brain and spinal cord. It extends from the bones in the head to the tailbone area known as the sacrum. Since this unique system had a direct impact on the central nervous system, it is easy to see how an imbalance there could cause any number or sensory, motor or neurological problems.

The main goal of a CST session is to allow the central nervous system the opportunity to relax, rejuvenate and heal from the traumas of PTSD. This holistic bodywork approach can help release the tension patterns created by the traumatic physical or emotional experience.

CST is light touch, full clothed therapy which leaves clients in a deeply relaxed state.  Clients often experience decreased pain and a sense of overall well being that continues long after the session is over.
