What is Craniosacral Therapy?
It is a gentle hands-on therapy that supports the body’s natural goal to find optimal health and postural balance.
Cranial Sacral therapy was developed in the early 1900s from the findings of a US Osteopath, Dr William Sutherland. These findings show that, in health, all living tissue (muscles, bones, nerves, fluid) express a subtle rhythmic motion, which has been called Primary Respiration. The full and balanced expression of Primary Respiration is fundamental to good health. However, factors such as accidents, injuries, stresses, toxicity or emotional problems can affect Primary Respiration and therefore health.
A Cranial Sacral therapist is trained to listen to this rhythmic motion and identify areas of stress or strain in the body. They then, using Cranial Sacral skills, provide an opportunity for the body to recognise and release inertial patterns, invite restoration of Primary Respiration and therefore a healthier state of being.
Many conditions can respond well to Cranial Sacral treatment such as stress, anxiety, depressions, chronic fatigue, digestive disorders, headaches, hormonal disorders,insomnia, migraine, tinnitus, hyperactivity, dizziness, muscular pain and more!
During a session, usually, you will lie fully clothed on a treatment table and experience the light touch of the therapist’s hands. You may feel a deep relaxation and possibly become aware of heat, tingling, pulsations or other sensations.
Cranial Sacral Therapy is suitable for all ages.
