Craniosacral Therapy utilises gentle, precise touch to evaluate and enhance the functioning of your central nervous system. During a session I focus on the very fine motility patterns that are present throughout your body to treat imbalances affecting your head, spine and sacrum.
Craniosacral Therapy works with the craniosacral system which consists of the membranes and cerebrospinal fluid that surrounds and protects your brain and spinal cord. This system extends from your head down your spine to your tailbone.
Craniosacral Therapy also recognises the unity of all structural, physiological, psychological and energetic processes within the human being. It works with the deeper energy systems of your body accessing the underlying reasons for imbalances and bringing them to resolution.Though this form of body work is often termed subtle the effects can be quite profound and many shifts in awareness and consciousness can be experienced.
Because of its influence on the functioning of the nervous system it can benefit your body in many ways from stress reduction to alleviating a wide range of conditions.
As extremely light touch is used it is a safe modality for people of all ages and states of health.
The craniosacral concept was originally conceived by William Garner Sutherland, an Osteopath, and is now practiced by a range of healthcare practitioners around the world.
