Craniosacral Therapy is a gentle and yet profound form of treatment which assists the body’s natural abilities for self-repair. It was first developed by osteopaths in the USA who found that all cells and structures in the body are constantly moving following what is called the Cranio-sacral rhythm. This very subtle rhythmic movement is best felt through the cerebrospinal fluid that protects the brain and spinal cord.
In response to physical knocks, emotional stress or trauma, the body’s tissues contract; over time these restrictions can lead to discomfort, pain and dis-ease. By listening to the cranio-sacral rhythm and gently re-aligning the body, therapists are able to gently release restrictions and free nerve pathways. This helps increase physical vitality and well being. Sessions are deeply relaxing and allow you to let go of pain and trauma which may have been stored in the body for a very long time.
Craniosacral therapy is beneficial to anyone including babies who often suffer shock during their time in the womb or during the birth process.
