In Annapolis, CST (craniosacral therapy) is based upon the belief that light pressure through touch can reduce the pressures on the craniosacral systems, which in turn leads to wellness for individuals suffering from certain conditions.
The craniosacral systems include the cranial bones and cerebrospinal fluid. Nerves and membranes encompass the brain, spinal cord, and nerves. This holistic practice reinforces the notion that bones can be moved and that movement has an effect on the craniosacral rhythm in the cerebrospinal liquid. In Annapolis, this alternative view of medicine is different from the mainstream belief that skull bones fuse in adolescence, and therefore are unable to move.
Craniosacral treatment session in Annapolis has many benefits, according to advocates. CST treatment can help with conditions such as chronic neck and back pains, migraines, fibromyalgia, and attention deficit disorder (ADD), chronic fatigue syndrome, and temporomandibular joints disorder (TMJ). These patients believe that CST helped them live healthier lives by relieving their symptoms.

CST opponents argue that CST's facts, beliefs, and tenets are flawed because of inconclusive scientific research, or because they ignore accepted medical practices and beliefs. CST is opposed because it holds that the skull bones cannot move without great pressure.
The National Institute of Health is currently conducting clinical trials to see if craniosacral treatment can alleviate migraines. Migraines are a serious condition that many people struggle to treat even with medication. Research has shown that these techniques offer relief for patients.
