Craniosacral Therapy is a gentle healing technique that can create profound improvements to your health and wellbeing
Craniosacral Therapy (CST) is a gentle healing technique that can help create profound improvements in your health and wellbeing. With a combination of set movements and intuitive touch, this therapy can help facilitate the release of physical, emotional, energetic tensions and blockages held deep in the body.
The craniosacral system extends from the skull or the cranium down to the tailbone or sacrum. It consists of the brain and spinal cord, which is bathed, protected and nourished by the spinal fluid. The system has a pulse or rhythm, which is distinctly different from the cardiac and respiratory rhythms. When exposed to tension and stresses, imbalances can develop physically and emotionally.
Why is Craniosacral Therapy Important?
Daily we can be subjected to stresses, pains, strains, emotional and physical injuries and they can impact on our body. Our bodies have a limit as to how much it can endure before the tissues tighten from the strain and problems manifest.
The tightness can cause energy blockages that can affect our central nervous system and other bodily systems. These tensions can be located within the CranioSacral System.
This gentle, hands on therapy, is deeply relaxing, it is done over clothes and it has no age restrictions. Treatment lasts for about an hour with the patient lying on their back or in a more comfortable position.
The therapist will start with an assessment of the CST system and then by placing their hands at various points key points on the body, help to facilitate healing by the release of blocks and tension.
