Jackie Lowe, CST, CLEC
Craniosacral therapy (CST) is a light-touch treatment technique focused on releasing restrictions within the craniosacral system. This system consists of the membranes and cerebrospinal fluid that surround, protect, and nourish the brain and spinal cord, as well as the attached bones. These areas extend from the bones in the skull, face, and mouth all the way down to the tailbone area. An imbalance or restriction within this system can cause sensory, motor, and/or neurological dysfunctions. Relieving tension in the central nervous system promotes a feeling of well-being by eliminating pain and boosting health and immunity. The focus of CST is a gentle placement of hands to assist release of the body’s connective tissue, or “fascia.” Fascia (Latin word for “band”) is a covering found throughout the body including organs, glands, nerves, muscles, blood vessels, brain, and spinal cord. This therapy is thought to improve efficiency of biological processes through boosting inherent self-regulation, self-correction, and self-healing.
Anyone can benefit from craniosacral therapy. At our office, it is highly recommended that all patients who are undergoing orthodontic (ALF) treatment also schedule CST with Jackie, as the ALF treatment is very complementary to CST. Also, mothers who are having difficulties with nursing/latch are recommended to schedule a session with Jackie. Because Jackie is a CLEC (Certified Lactation Educator Counselor), she is able to help with breastfeeding issues. CST is also extremely beneficial both before and after an infant’s lip-tie / tongue-tie procedure.
Jackie Lowe is a mother, wife, and lover of all things holistic and healing. With an educational background in occupational therapy, craniosacral therapy, and lactation counseling, Jackie’s mission is to provide nourishing support and healing to families so that they may be functioning at their highest levels.
