Craniosacral Therapy

Craniosacral Therapy is a non-invasive hands on healing. Personally I found it to be subtle but profound, and works on a very deep level of the body. Through my own treatments I found that CST helps to inrease vitality, improves the body's capacity to self-heal, reconnect to ones own healing powers. For me CST is truly a holistic treatments and works on all levels of ones being - physically, emotionally and spiritually.

Craniosacral Therapy originates from Osteopathy. It was developed from the American cranial osteopath Dr Willam Sutherland in the early 1900s.

 In Craniosacral Therapy the practitioner will apply very light touch to the body - there is no manipulations only a very light pressure is applied to the body.

Anatomically the Craniosacral System comprises of the membrane system that envelopes the central nervous system - brain and spinal cord, the cerebrospinal fluid that surrounds and protects the brain and spinal cord, the bones which attach to this membrane system - skull and vertabrae, and the Fascia the enevlopes all tissue in the body and that radiates out from the Membrane system to all parts of the body. The movement of the cerebrospinal fluid creates a motion called the craniosacral rhythm. The free flow of the cerebrospinal fluid together with the free motion of craniosacral rhythm assists a great number of vital functions of the body. 

In Cranioasacral therapy the practioner is facilitating the body's own self healing abilities to resolve  any restrictions, impact or trauma that affect the free flow of the cerebrospinal fluid and the craniosacral motion.

In a treatment first a case history is taken and then the client is asked to lie down fully clothed with shoes off on the treatment couch. The practitioner will then place their hands on different part of the body, usually the feet, head- cranium, torso, base of the spine - sacrum, a long the vertebrae. The touch is very gentle and light no manipulations.

Craniosacral therapy is different for everybody. You may feel heat, tingling sensations, gentle pulsation, deep relaxation and sometimes emotions will surface to be released from the tissue. Craniosacral therapy is gentle, deeply relaxing and profound form of bodywork. Client will remain comfortable, in control and able to integrate the changes that occures in a treatment.

Craniosacral therapy due to its gentleness is suited for everybody - babies, children, adults, those with acute pain and eldery. Designed to complement the body's own healing process, Craniosacral therapy is often used as a preventative heatlh measure. 

Craniosacral therapy does not claim to diagnose, cure or prescribe.
