Craniosacral Therapy is a gentle, hands-on approach to releasing tension, relieving pain and improving whole body health and performance. This powerful, yet gentle treatment directly addresses the craniosacral system — the soft tissues and fluid that protect the brain and spinal cord. Few body systems have more impact on your central nervous system than this critical structure.
Your body can only handle so much tension before the tissues begin to tighten and potentially affect the brain and spinal cord. By freeing the central nervous system to perform at its best, Craniosacral Therapy naturally eliminates pain and stress, strengthens your resistance to disease and enhances your overall health and well-being on both a physical and emotional level.
How Can It Help Me?
CST works by facilitating your body’s own capacity for healing and repair, and acknowledges the interconnectedness of mind, body, soul and spirit by working with the whole person. It involves listening deeply to what is happening within your system and is a natural way of helping our bodies to relax and recover.
Many clients feel they benefit from craniosacral therapy for their general well-being, however below are just a few examples of specific conditions that people seek help with:-
- Headaches, migraine
- Asthma/Respiratory difficulties
- Back Pain/Sciatica
- Frozen shoulder
- Menstrual problems/Symptoms of Menopause
- Dental and TMJ (jaw) issues
- Ear infections/glue ear/tinnitus
- Support during and after pregnancy
- Digestive issues
- Birth Trauma
- Colic, reflux, feeding difficulties
As the outcome of a treatment is unique to each client, I believe the best way to understand whether this kind of work is suitable for you is to experience it. The patient will remain fully clothed, lying on their back while the practitioner works hands on, around the body. (Modifications can be made for those who find lying flat uncomfortable). CST is suitable for all ages from birth to old age.
**Craniosacral therapy is a holistic approach to wellbeing and is intended to complement and never replace direct medical consultation. If you have concerns you should always consult our GP.
