What people say about the book

“An interesting insight into the work of these healers and the compassion and thought they bring to their clients.”
– Susie Orbach, Psychotherapist and Author of ‘Bodies

“A fascinating account of ten sessions of Craniosacral Therapy. Written in the form of first-person accounts from the perspectives of the client, therapist and authors, it takes the reader on a journey through their inner worlds, and clearly demonstrates the power and subtlety of a form of therapy which connects body and mind so well.”
– Robin Shohet, Psychotherapist and Author

“Reading this book reminded me of my own very positive experience of this work. No question, should the need arise, I shall return for more treatment.”
– Chris McVie, Fleetwood Mac

“This is a powerful journey through the personal and interpersonal processes that emerge as craniosacral sessions unfold and deepen. Craniosacral work is essentially feminine, based on states of presence, relationship and a deepening into a depth of listening and stillness. It is from this depth [that], a deeper Intelligence emerges …. I hope it supports all readers in their own healing processes.”
– Franklyn Sills, Co-Founder and Co-Director of the Karuna Institute, Author ‘Foundations in Craniosacral Biodynamics

Why we wrote this book

We set out with the intention to demonstrate the magical quality of Craniosacral Therapy, an experience unlike any other, but not one that can be easily described in words. If asked for our explanation, we would answer that most of our work is incredibly simple; we listen and offer rest and resourcing. It can often be mundane. We don’t offer to cure or heal or see into the future or the past, but we do put our hands on people, and something happens when we do. A listening touch from an experienced practitioner can create a shift in the body. Primarily because it awakens a self-listening and healing in the client that does not necessarily or exclusively rely on any form of manipulation, however imperceptible.

Connecting successfully with a client is the vital key to facilitating change. We believe that change is achieved through the development of a trusting relationship between client and practitioner, and the practitioner’s skilful ability to reflect to the client where she may be holding tension or where there are restrictions in the body, either physical or emotional. It is very much a counselling of the body, bringing about relief by encouraging self-awareness and recognition of the source of a problem, and ultimately relying upon a growing appreciation by the client of their own powerful ability to heal.

One of the areas we originally set out to explore was what it truly felt like to be a therapist. How does it feel when you are not sure of either the work itself or your abilities as a practitioner? What happens if you are working with a person whose story is not only close to your own, but whose issues you share but haven’t resolved for yourself? Writing this has helped me look again at all those assumptions that I thought were universal only to discover that they turned out to be mine alone.

We also wanted to give a flavour of the potential of the magical, mysterious and wonderful world of bodywork. I think that this has been the greatest challenge as bodywork is by its nature conveyed through sensory experience, and it does not make sense to the logical and overpowering mind.
