Craniosacral Therapy

Craniosacral Therapy is a hands-on therapy which assists the body’s natural capacity for self-repair.
You will usually lie on a treatment table while the therapist’s hands make a light contact. This gentle approach does not use manipulation. The therapist listens, via the hands, to what is going on in your body, and identifies and helps to relieve pain or tension held there. You may feel a deep sense of relaxation and became aware of heat, tingling, pulsations or other sensations.
Craniosacral Therapy is client-led. Your body will set the pace of work, so you will remain comfortable, in control and able to integrate the changes that occur.
Since it is your body (rather than your mind) that sets the priorities, you may find that the reason you came for treatment is not what changes first.

How does Craniosacral Therapy works?
In response to physical knocks or emotional stress, the body’s tissues contract. Sometimes, particularly when the shock is severe or accompanied by strong emotions, the tissues stay contracted.
Any trauma, stresses, strains, or tensions which remain in the body restrict the body’s functioning and may give rise to problems over the years. The effects may be both physical (such as back pain, migraine or digestive disorders) and emotional (such as anxiety or depression).
Restrictions in the body’s functioning show up in the way that Craniosacral motion is expressed. Craniosacral therapists are trained to feel this subtle motion in the body, and can use it to find where there is congestion or restriction.
Then, using the hands to amplify the pattern the body is holding, the therapist provides an opportunity for the body to let go of its restriction and return to an easier way of functioning. This frees the energy which the body was previously using to hold itself in contraction. So one of the benefits of the therapy can be increase in the level of energy available. The resulting changes can bring greater ease on a mental or emotional level as well as to the body.
