Craniosacral Therapy

What is CST?

Craniosacral Therapy is a gentle touch treatment with a self-healing approach. In this treatment, you are fully dressed and the therapist gently touches different parts of your body, mainly your head and your tailbone area. Your body will then release, unwind and heal what is necessary or possible at that moment. This therapy dwells deep in to the source of the discomfort, not just relieving symptoms.

Shaz became familiar with CST with the birth of her son, who has Down Syndrome.  No one in her circle knew about it in Iran, so when she came to Canada when he was 2, she started him with treatments. It helped him a lot. She quickly realized that this is the thing he needs, so she studied it at Langara College and in 2014 became a Craniosacral Therapist herself, to help him with the different challenges that he will have in different stages of his life. She believes this is one of the many blessings he has brought to her life, because not only is she treating him, but now helping other people as well.

Since Shaz is also a lactation consultant, her niche practice in CST is with babies and new mothers, but men and people at any age can benefit from her expertise.

Movement gives health and life. Stagnation brings disease and death.”
