About Craniosacral Therapy

Craniosacral therapy is a gentle practice which works with the rhythms and energies of the body. It is a light-touch therapy in which the practitioner tunes in to the subtle rhythms of the craniosacral system to help rebalance and restore its natural flow.

About Craniosacral Therapy

What a Craniosacral Therapist Does

The craniosacral system comprises the membranes and cerebrospinal fluid that surround and protect the brain and spinal cord from the skull (cranium) to the tailbone (sacrum). A craniosacral practitioner is trained to ‘listen’ to this system and identify restrictions within it. These can be caused by physical knocks, emotional stress or major events in life. The practitioner will work to release these restrictions, improving the function of the nervous system and encouraging the body back to its natural balance.

About Craniosacral Therapy

What happens in a treatment?

In our first session we talk about your symptoms and past health history. I’ll also ask about major life events, and any medication you may be taking. This allows you to communicate your primary concerns and helps me understand your full picture.

When you feel ready you lie, fully clothed, on the therapy table. (This is a normal therapy table, the type you may have seen used in massages). At this point you are invited to relax and be comfortable.

When you feel settled, I then make light-touch contact with my hands to tune in and listen to your system. Common places of contact include feet, knees, shoulders and head, or under the spine and pelvis. This will always be negotiated and explained and only be done with your permission.

As you settle into the treatment, through this light-touch I will identify areas of blockage or restriction and invite your system to release these at a pace which is comfortable and allows you to remain in control. Some clients experience gentle pulsing, heat or tingling during treatments. You are always free to verbalise any experience which emerges during the session.

After the treatment you are welcome to share anything which will help you integrate what has been brought into your awareness.
