Craniosacral Therapy is a gentle, hands-on method of evaluating and enhancing the function of the craniosacral system which is comprised of the brain, spinal cord, central nervous system, and the membranes, bones, and cerebrospinal fluid that house and protect them. Using soft touch, the aim of the practitioner is to help release restrictions in the craniosacral system, therefore improving function of the central nervous system and general well-being.
Craniosacral Therapy is a natural pain relief technique used for treatment of chronic pain, menopause, menstrual discomfort, PMS, back pain, pelvic pain, scoliosis, TMJ, headache, anxiety, emotional difficulties, depression, stress, fibromyalgia, the effects of Multiple Sclerosis symptoms and many other conditions.
This therapy encourages the body’s own natural healing mechanisms to relieve the negative effects of an injury which has left an imprint on tissues and the central nervous system. The result is better overall physical and mental health, and increased immune resistance. Many clients feel calm and energized immediately after a session and find the effects of the work to be long-lasting.
Aside from the physical aspects of being, it can also be used as a tool for deep relaxation & meditation, to heal old injuries or emotional wounds, uncover resilience and inner vitality, access parts of ourselves outside the conscious realm and augment other approaches to self-development. This enables clients to find finer levels of balance.
The client remains fully clothed and light touch is used to identify imbalances within the deep rhythms of the body. The practitioner places hands on the client in various places, whilst synchronizing with the system to encourage the body’s innate healing and balancing forces to take a more active role.
