Cranio Sacral Therapy is a gentle way of working with the body using light touch. People sometimes ask about the name Cranio Sacral Therapy and think it only refers to the head. In fact Cranio Sacral Therapy works with the whole person: the word Cranio refers to the head and skull, and Sacral (Sacrum) refers to the base of the spine.
Therefore the whole body is treated in much the same way that an Osteopath or Chiropractor will treat the whole body.
Changes may occur in body, mind and spirit during and after sessions.
People may come for Cranio Sacral Therapy because they have physical problems like headaches, neck issues or bad backs. They may also attend for long-standing problems both physical and emotional. Others come for on-going support in their busy lives and for help to meet life’s challenges.
Because it is so gentle and non-invasive, Cranio Sacral Therapy is suitable for everyone from newborns to the elderly.
Many people will have heard of Cranial Osteopathy, especially mothers who often seek out this treatment for babies who suffer from colic and poor sleeping patterns. Cranio Sacral Therapy works in the same way, releasing tension and fear held in the body which allows babies to settle into calmness.
Cranio Sacral Therapy supports your body’s innate ability to balance, restore and heal itself, as well as helping to reduce stress and build your underlying energy. The practitioner senses tensions in the body using their hands and helps to release them in a supported and comfortable way. It is completely non-invasive and very gentle, there is no cracking, massage or manipulation. During or after a session you may feel calm and energised, with increased clarity of mind and a feeling of well-being.
