|What Happens During a Craniosacral Therapy Treatment Session?
A craniosacral therapist is trained to 'listen' to what is going on
in the body using very light manual contact. It is thought that the
body responds to this light contact and the recipient often experiences
relief of pain and tension in the body. It sometimes takes a few sessions
to get used to the process, so it is often beneficial to consider
having a series of treatments to discover the benefits and effects
of craniosacral therapy.

How does it work?
It is thought that body’s tissues contract in response to physical
strains such as whiplash injuries
and accidents/falls or emotional
stress. Tensions remaining in the body restrict its function and
this can lead to the development of problems such as arthritis;
muscular aches and pains; Low
Back Pain; Sciatica; frozen
shoulder. These perceived restrictions can be felt by the
therapist and it is thought that the tensions are helped to release
by the process of craniosacral therapy.
Craniosacral therapy is intended to complement, not replace, the
relationship you have with your medical practitioner. If you have

your doctor. It is not advisable to disregard or delay seeking medical
