What is Craniosacral Therapy?

Craniosacral therapy is a gentle hands on treatment which evolved from Osteopathy and takes a whole person approach to healing by reducing stress and tensions within the body. A Craniosacral therapist uses very gentle touch and listens to the body through the hands to find out where these restrictions are. The aim is to help the body to release these tensions and contractions usually just by the application of light pressure, supporting the natural rhythm and flow to return. Some clients may have a sense of deep relaxation; some may experience pleasant sensations such as tingling, muscles relaxing or heat; some simply fall asleep. Everyone is different and each one of us will react differently and heal at different speeds.

 

Who is it for?

Craniosacral therapy can be beneficial for all ages. It can ease colic and reduce crying in new born babies and help the dying reach a peaceful place, as well as often helping to relieve a wide range of ailments, including headaches, back and neck pain, digestive problems such as IBS, ear infections, labrynthitis, anxiety, trauma and injuries from accidents, and menstrual disorders. Patients remain fully clothed and a gentle touch is used to help the body release tensions and restrictions in the soft tissues which enables the craniosacral motion to restart, thereby raising vitality and well-being, and restoring its natural healing processes.
