What is Craniosacral Therapy?
It is a 'hands on' therapy.
For treatment, you will usually lie on a treatment table and experience the very light touch of the therapist's hands. You may feel a deep sense of relaxation, and possibly become aware of heat, tingling, pulsations or other sensations.
This extremely gentle therapy uses no manipulation. The therapist listens, via the hands, to what is going on in your body, and in this way both identifies and relieves pains or tensions held in the body.
Craniosacral Therapy is client-led. Your body will set the pace of work, so you will remain comfortable, in control and able to integrate the changes that occur.
Since it is your body (rather than your mind) that sets the priorities, you may find that the reason you came for treatment is not what changes first. Also, some people find that it can take a few sessions to get used to what they are feeling. For these reasons, you may need to consider having a series of treatments to gain the full benefit of Craniosacral Therapy and its cumulative effects.
Craniosacral Therapy is becoming much better known these days. It is based on a number of findings about the body's subtle physiology, which were made by osteopaths in the USA nearly 100 years ago.
These findings show that every cell in a healthy body expresses a rhythmic movement which is fundamental to life - and which has been called Craniosacral motion.
At the core of the body the cerebrospinal fluid, which bathes and cushions the brain and spinal cord, expresses this motion in a tide-like ebb and flow; while bones, organs and other structures in the body each follow their own particular pattern of movement.
This motion is so subtle that it is barely measurable with instruments, but the hands of a trained therapist are able to perceive it.
As the implications of these findings were realized, during the first thirty years or so of the 20th century, Craniosacral Therapy gradually developed. Since then the therapy has been refined and further developed into the subtle, deep healing process which is available today.
