CranioSacral therapy is a hands on light touch therapy that focuses on the full health potential of the individual. It is a gentle and effective method that has the power to resolve long held issues in the patients history on a physical, psychological and emotional level. This approach can release areas of tension or long held trauma that has been held in the tissues of the body. It offers the client the opportunity to connect with inner resources and to access levels of stillness, balance and inner calm.
This treatment supports the body's own self healing mechanism and calms the central nervous system aiding stress reduction and pain management. The central nervous system greatly influences mental and physical health. As the therapist works directly with the membranes and fluids surrounding the central nervous system, CranioSacral therapy helps to reduce tensions that may be compromising optimal function throughout the system.
Sessions normally last about one hour and take place with the client relaxing fully clothed on a massage table. The therapist places their hands on various points on the body to assess and treat restrictions in the system. The experience of this therapy can be deeply relaxing and calming while there can also be physical unwinding of tensions in the body. On occasion the body can release emotional tension that can be held in the tissue. It offers the client the opportunity to connect with inner resources and to access levels of stillness, balance and inner calm.
