There are many ways to find one’s path in life. For Rockaway Township resident, Hilary Bilkis, it took career uncertainty and a continuing education class for her to find her calling in providing CranioSacral Therapy (CST), opening her own practice.

Simply put, CST, according to Bilkis is “a very gentle and deeply relaxing form of body work that releases tension from the central nervous system and the entire body…CranioSacral Therapy allows the entire body to relax and self-correct. By freeing the body from unwanted tension, it eliminates pain and stress and enhances your feelings of well-being.”

This may sound very much like massage therapy, but CST is different in that a regular massage focuses on providing relief to the musculoskeletal system, but CST has a “much broader scope,” said Bilkis. “It addresses and corrects imbalances in the bones of the skull and pelvis, the membranes within the skull and the membranes within the spinal cord. These membranes are continuous with the fascial system of the body.”
