Craniosacral Therapy

Craniosacral Therapy is a gentle and powerful 'hands on' treatment which has developed from Osteopathic roots into a sophisticated biodynamic treatment. A Craniosacral therapist will 'listen to' and support your body-mind system by using a skilful touch at various points on your body, this enables them to assess and gently resolve a wide range of conditions that may be affecting you including recent injury and illness, or long standing problems.

By working to support and enhance your own self-healing capacity, Craniosacral Therapy can help to resolve many difficulties in body and mind, and can be effectively combined with other treatment you may be receiving. It is a great resource for the demands of a busy lifestyle and a valuable tool in any process of self-development. It is particularly useful if you need to process the effects of 'shock and trauma', such as after experiencing a life threatening event, or period of long-term emotional and psychological stress.

Clients usually find the experience extremely relaxing and resourcing, with treatment taking place while you remain fully clothed. Sessions generally last for 1 hour and you will have the opportunity to discuss anything that may arise in a safe and supportive environment.

 

Craniosacral Therapy for Babies and Children

Craniosacral Therapy has developed an excellent reputation as a treatment for babies. Restrictions arising during birth may result in suckling problems, colic, breathing difficulties, restlessness and irritability. Quick deliveries, the use of suction, forceps or Caesarean section, can all add to the compressive or stressful influences on the baby's body and nervous system. Craniosacral Therapy can help to calm the baby's nervous system, which allows the body to adjust and find balance.
