Craniosacral Therapy amplifies the body’s natural capacity for self repair, resulting in profound physical and psychological benefits. It can help restore balance to the nervous system, increase resilience, and encourage the integration of life experiences.
Who is Craniosacral Therapy suitable for?
People come for different reasons: support through major or minor illnesses, life transitions (like changes in the family, births, separation, bereavement, accidents) while others may have aches, pains, minor or major injuries. People are also drawn to the therapy for its deeply relaxing and meditative qualities. This therapy can help you to build inner resources and recover from shocks, traumas or simply from feeling out of sorts. Cranial work is relevant for all stages of life and all ages, the gentle and non intrusive approach is suitable for babies and the elderly.
‘The same stream of life that runs through my veins night and day runs through the world and dances in rhythmic measures.'
What happens in a session?
You are invited to sit or lay down fully clothed. The practitioner will place her hands lightly on your body and engage in deep listening. Our cells express rhythmic movement fundamental to life which we call the Breath of Life. Therapists are trained to feel this motion similar to listening to wrist pulse. You may become aware of heat, tingling, pulsations or other sensations and you may also feel a deep sense of relaxation. The process of coming into body awareness and building resources can help you develop a more proactive approach to your own health. In the case of babies or young children the work is done between play or in the care of the guardian present. In the first session for any under age patient, the presence of both parents will be required where appropriate.
How many sessions do I need?
Major shifts can happen in just one session. However, depending on your circumstances and your enquiry, you may like to continue with further sessions. Typically three sessions will be proposed. The first session tends to be longer as a comprehensive case history will be taken. To discuss your enquiry and make an appointment, please get in touch. We are available Tuesday to Friday.
