Craniosacral Therapy is a gentle form of body therapy that supports the body’s innate ability to balance and restore itself, as well as helping to reduce stress and build your underlying energy. During or after a session you may feel calm and energised, with increased clarity of mind and a feeling of well-being.
Craniosacral Therapy is noninvasive. It uses gentle pressure on the head, neck, and back to relieve the stress and pain caused by compression. It’s thought that through the gentle manipulation of the bones in the skull, spine, and pelvis, the flow of cerebrospinal fluid in the central nervous system can be normalised. This removes “blockages” from the normal flow, which enhances the body’s ability to heal.
It is a deep form of listening to the body, allowing you to settle into calmness and balance. The subtle dialogue between me and your body helps to reorganise the effects of life’s experiences, both physical and emotional, and encourages your body’s innate resources. Treatments offer you a safe and accepting space to notice and attend to what’s happening within you and find a point of stillness, well being and ease in your day-to-day life.

What happens during a session?
The client is usually lying down fully clothed on a treatment table, experiencing the light touch of the therapist’s hands. There may be a deep sense of relaxation and possibly an awareness of heat, tingling, pulsation or other sensations. Everyone’s experience is unique and a personal voyage of discovery, encouraging a greater degree of spaciousness, stillness and peace in their lives.
During sessions you lie clothed on a treatment table and we use sensitive touch to feel tensions and subtle flows within your body, working with the underlying forces that facilitate health. Contact is usually made with the feet, head and the base of the spine, and often with other areas too.
