Craniosacral Therapy (CST) is a hands-on therapy that uses a light touch and whose origins are in the practice of Osteopathy.
The body has self-healing capabilities and is constantly striving for good health. CST can facilitate this natural propensity for balance and a feeling of wellbeing in the client and recognizes the interconnection between mind and body.
Craniosacral therapists work with the presence of subtle rhythmic motions that are expressed within the body (particularly the head, spine and pelvis). The free and balanced expression of these subtle motions is related to our state of health and vitality.
What to expect:
A first treatment is 60 minutes long involving a consultation and treatment.
A second and follow up 50 minute treatments.
In a typical session the client will lie (or sometimes sit) clothed on a treatment couch. The therapist makes contact by gently placing their hands on the client's body and uses a light touch to tune into the subtle motions taking place. The therapist can evaluate if there are any imbalances within the body and use a range of non-invasive therapeutic skills to relax and thereby promote self-healing within the client.
CST is a very subtle, gentle, non-invasive form of treatment that can be used by everyone; from new-born babies to the elderly.
Craniosacral therapy is not intended as primary healthcare but to work alongside the relationship clients have with their doctor or other health professionals.
