Craniosacral Therapy

A gentle way of working with the body using light touch

 

 What is Craniosacral Therapy?

When a Craniosacral Therapist places her hands lightly on you, she is using them to listen to you in much the same way that a counsellor might listen to your words. Your body responds to this sensitive touch by beginning to listen to itself.

Craniosacral Therapy is a very gentle way of working with pain and discomfort. It facilitates a deep relaxation which supports your body’s innate ability to self-regulate and self-heal. Sometimes people think it refers only to the head and spine, but in fact, it works with the whole person, and changes may occur in body, mind and spirit. The practitioner uses her hands to sense tensions, stresses and traumas held in the tissue and helps to release them in a supported and comfortable way.

 Who is it for?

The light touch used in Craniosacral Therapy makes it suitable for all ages, from new born babies to centenarians. People come with both acute and chronic conditions, and clients who are experiencing acutely painful conditions or who feel too fragile for a more active form of bodywork find Craniosacral Therapy meets their needs. Mothers and babies often come with problems associated with difficult or traumatic births.

What happens during a session?

During the first session the practitioner will take a detailed case history, asking you questions about your health and well-being. Generally the client lies on a comfortable treatment table, fully clothed, although it is also possible to remain seated . I suggest parents hold babies in their laps and I use a futon on the floor for working with children. The practitioner will make gentle contact with the feet, head and sacrum and areas of pain or discomfort (over loose clothing). The first session lasts an hour and a half, and subsequent sessions one hour.

What will I experience?

These are some of the words and phrases that people have used to describe their experience of Craniosacral Therapy: “Comforting, inner peace, a sense of relief, deep stillness and relaxation, connection, feeling accepted, feeling more alive, put back in one piece, feeling whole again”.

Is it for me?

If you have any queries please contact me and I will be happy to answer them.

How many treatments will I need?

Sometimes people report relief after one or two sessions, but for long-standing problems further sessions will be needed. It is recommended that a first course of treatment is 7 sessions.

What do I need to do after a session?

After a session, there may be a short period of adjustment , so it’s helpful to be able to rest, or at least do nothing strenuous.

How does Craniosacral Therapy work alongside conventional medicine?

Craniosacral therapy is not intended as primary health care. Rather, it plays a supporting role, working alongside conventional medicine. Practitioners do not diagnose or prescribe medication.
