What is the Craniosacral Therapy?
Craniosacral therapy is an extremely gentle treatment and allows the body's innate healing power to restore the natural balance of the body.
It was developed by osteopath William Garner Sutherland (1873-1954). He first noticed the suture (fibrous joint) of the skull was similar to the gill of the fish, and he thought that perhaps the whole of the skull is mobile rather than static. He identified tide-like motion in the body which was different from breathing and circulation of the blood. By tuning into this rhythmic motion, he discovered that the body’s innate healing power naturally arises and releases the restriction and restores balance on its own.
Who is it for?
Craniosacral therapy is a safe and gentle treatment suitable for anyone from babies to old people.
Craniosacral therapy primarily engages with the whole person and helps to enhance the body’s innate healing power.
People come to craniosacral treatment with a variety of conditions such as:
Backaches, neck aches,
Shoulder aches and frozen shoulder
SI (Sacroiliac) joint pain
Psychological and physical trauma
What happens in a treatment?
In the first session, I start with taking your case history.
Then you simply lie on the couch and relax.
During the treatment, I place my hands very gently on your body and listen to see where the restriction, disturbance, and imbalances are. The body has its natural rhythm and powerful healing potential. By tuning into it, the body gradually unfolds and balances itself. It is an extremely subtle work but can have a profound effect on the body and mind, integrating the whole person.
Please wear loose-fitting trousers and bring a clean pair of socks.
Please give at least 24hours notice if you need to cancel your appointment. Missed appointments or cancellations of less than 24hours notice will be charged for the session.
