What is Craniosacral Therapy?
A hands-on therapy that uses a light touch and whose origins are in the practice of Osteopathy.
The body has self-healing capabilities and is constantly striving for good health. Craniosacral Therapy can facilitate this natural propensity for balance and a feeling of wellbeing in the client. Craniosacral Therapy also recognises the interconnection between mind and body.
Craniosacral therapists work with the presence of subtle rhythmic motions that are expressed within the body (particularly the head, spine and pelvis). The free and balanced expression of these subtle motions is related to our state of health and vitality.
Try Craniosacral Therapy if you are...
...tired all the time?
...have aches and pains?
What happens during a treatment session?
A case history is taken during the first consultation and sessions include a sensitive discussion about the client's condition and treatment approach.
In a typical session the client will lie (or sometimes sit) clothed on a treatment couch. The therapist makes contact by gently placing her/his hands on the client's body and uses a light touch to tune into the subtle motions taking place. The therapist can evaluate if there are any imbalances within the body and use a range of non-invasive therapeutic skills to relax and thereby promote self-healing within the client.
The client is supported to feel at ease throughout the session.
Will I feel anything?
You may feel a deep sense of relaxation and possibly become aware of heat, tingling, pulsations or other sensations.
