In Rachel's Osteopathic Craniosacral Therapy (CST) practice, clients achieve deep meditative states of relaxation and bliss through the full activation of the CSP/ vis medicatrix naturae – the healing force of nature within. CST stimulates the body’s self-corrective mechanisms, and as such is wonderful preventative care. It is also highly beneficial for insomnia, migraines, Concussion/TBI, TMJ, Vertigo, whiplash, sinus and tension headaches, stress, digestive problems, back pain, and impact injuries.
