Craniosacral Therapy
Craniosacral Therapy is thought to assists
the body’s natural ability to repair itself
What is Craniosacral Therapy?
Craniosacral therapy is a gentle hands-on therapy which is thought to assist the body’s natural ability to repair itself. A registered craniosacral therapist is a graduate of a training course accredited by the Craniosacral Association of the UK and has to undertake continuing professional development.

to 'listen' with the hands
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.

Examples of common craniosacral treatment approaches with a model:

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.
