Treatment Q & A
Answers provided by  
Tad Wanveer, LMT, CST-D

You recently asked about...
Cerebral Hypertension

Would it be a contraindication to treat with CST/perform a Still Point Induction on someone who has Cerebral Hypertension (produces too much Cerebral Spinal fluid)?

Intracranial Hypertension has numerous causes, such as:a blockage of, or excessive production of, Cerebrospinal Fluid (CSF) within the ventricles; brain tumor; brain infection; or brain blood vessel abnormalities. A condition called Idiopathic Intracanial Hypertension is due to unknown reasons.


The condition you have described is called "Hydrocephalus." If the client's hydrocephalus is not controlled by a shunt (a little tube placed in the ventricles to drain CSF in order to control CSF pressure), or if the shunt is not working properly, then CranioSacral Therapy is contraindicated. 

BTD - Back by Popular Demand
