What can Craniosacral therapy offer you?
Craniosacral therapy is a non-manipulative and non-invasive therapy, generally carried out with you lying on a comfortable couch. There is no need to remove your clothing. I use a light hand contact, for instance along your spine, or at your head, shoulders or feet, in order to listen to subtle rhythms within your body – sometimes I liken it to a kind of ‘counselling’ for your body.
Craniosacral therapy can bring a state of calmness and stillness which allows your body to release tension and begin to make the changes it needs. People often say they experience a profound sense of relaxation and well-being during and after a treatment. Many say they feel calmer yet energised, with a greater sense of vitality, clarity and inner peace.
Because it’s so gentle, Craniosacral therapy is suitable for the newborn to the elderly; it is also suitable throughout pregnancy.
I work with adults who have a wide range of acute or long-standing issues, both physical and emotional. Others seek preventative healthcare or simply find that craniosacral therapy provides them with valuable ongoing support in their busy lives. I also often treat mothers and babies following a difficult birth, and babies who are unsettled or suffering with colic, feeding difficulties, poor sleep or excessive crying. Children with attention or learning difficulties, hyperactivity, or following illness, knocks and falls, vaccination or at times of transition, may also benefit.
Areas I often work with:
– Stress and anxiety
– Neck/shoulder/back pain
– Injury, shock and trauma
– dental/facial pain & neuralgia
– ear, nose & throat conditions
– Chronic fatigue
– Babies and children
