Craniosacral Therapy

Biodynamic Craniosacral therapy

Craniosacral Therapy is a gentle but profound ‘hands on therapy‘ that works with the subtle pulsations, rhythms and patterns held within the body to relieve discomfort and restore equilibrium. It speaks to the whole person and changes may occur in body, mind and spirit during and after sessions.

How does it work?

“Your Biography becomes your Biology” ( Carolyn Myss ) The body is an expression of a person’s total life history. Every physical and emotional response to life events can remain held within the body if it has not been fully experienced and expressed. This may create contraction , discomfort and later possibly dis-ease . During the therapy the Body Mind ,through being deeply listened to by the trained hands of the therapist, is able to ‘speak’ its story in much the same way as in the verbal client and counsellor relationship. This listening touch offers an invitation to the body to let go of contractions thus enabling muscles to unwind, tissues to soften and a general sense of greater expansion to be experienced. Support is given to any emotions that may arise during the healing process.

Who is it for ?

People come to Craniosacral for acute physical problems like headaches or bad backs, or long standing problems both physical and emotional. Others come for more general stress relief and relaxation or simply to gain a deeper insight into themselves. During or after a session you may feel calmer and more energised with increased clarity of mind and a greater feeling of well being.

Sessions

During the session you remain fully clothed. Most clients choose to lie on the massage table but if this is not comfortable for you alternative ways of working will be found. Each session takes about one and a quarter hours. Time is given at the beginning to check how you are and at the end for recuperation and integration.

Sometimes people report relief after one or two sessions but for long standing problems further sessions maybe needed. Some continue to check in at regular intervals even after their symptoms have improved as they find it emotionally, physically, and spiritually supportive
