What is Craniosacral therapy?

Craniosacral therapy is a gentle, but powerful technique that acts through the central nervous system to assist in improving function in the whole body.

The craniosacral system consists of the bones of the skull and the spinal column, together with the membranes and cerebrospinal fluid which surround and protect the brain and spinal cord.

Using a hands-on method of evaluating the craniosacral rhythm, the functioning of the physiological body system can be gently influenced and improved.

How CST help you?

Craniosacral therapy may help to improve the functioning of the central nervous system, eliminate the negative effects of stress, strengthen resistance to disease and enhance overall health.

Some of the conditions CST may help:

  • Back pain
  • Neck pain
  • Stiff joints
  • Headaches and migraine
  • Low energy
  • Digestive problems
  • Recurring infections

Due to the gentle nature of the treatment, CST is also suitable for babies (particularly colic), children and the elderly.

The treatment

The treatment is a non-invasive very light hands-on manipulative technique which re-aligns and bones of the skull and the spinal column down to the sacrum.

Generally no more than 5g of pressure (the weight of a twenty pence piece) is used to detect and correct imbalances, thus assisting the body’s natural healing process. By acting as a gentle barrier I encourage the body's own self-corrective mechanisms to rectify any faults.

It is not unusual for emotional issues to arise during a treatment. Often the way we handle our emotions has a profound affect on our physical health. Past traumas, such as injury or shock are sometimes held in the body’s soft tissue. Somato Emotional Release is a CST technique that explores the links between the trauma and the emotion linked to the event. By helping you to release the memory, the body is able to heal itself.
