Come and discover the quietness and peace of a Craniosacral treatment.
Craniosacral Therapy aims to create the conditions in which change can occur. Through a gentle contact the therapist seeks to encourage the body to release long held anxieties and tensions. It is a form of listening without words and as such it can be a powerful and useful support to the talking therapies.
Listening with our hands
Seeing with our hearts
Knowing with our senses
Understanding without words
In a typical Craniosacral session, you will usually lie (or sometimes sit) fully-clothed on a treatment couch. The therapist will make contact by placing their hands lightly on your body.
The first thing you will probably notice is a sense of deep relaxation, which will generally last throughout the session. This release of tension often extends into everyday life.
Sometimes the benefits are not immediately noticeable but become obvious on returning to a familiar environment. The work is often deeply moving and exhilarating.
To fully benefit from Craniosacral therapy, you may need more than one or two sessions. You and your practitioner will decide on how many sessions will be best for you. Some people respond well after 3 – 5 sessions, others find that Craniosacral Therapy becomes an on-going valuable resource that supports both their health and well-being.
