Cranio-Sacral Therapy is an extremely gentle and deceptively powerful treatment using the subtle energy and healing quality of the cerebrospinal fluid. The energy and flow of the cerebrospinal fluid can be felt throughout the tissues and fluids of the body, ideally flowing freely and evenly. Cranio-Sacral Therapy is used to treat areas of restriction and is ideal for back problems and headaches as well as emotional difficulties. Treatment can help release suppressed feelings or traumas, bringing about profound changes and resolution of past events.
The treatment takes place lying down fully clothed and involves light contact usually on the spine or head. It is generally extremely relaxing. Usually you will drift off to a timeless place or go on an interesting journey and leave with a deep sense of wellbeing.
Cranio-Sacral Therapy for babies:
Cranio-Sacral Therapy is ideal for even the tiniest baby because of it's gentle nature. Following birth a baby's system can be unsettled due to compression in the birth canal. The soft bones of the head, designed to move during birth, may not return to their optimum position.
If there has been a difficult birth or medical intervention, it can be physically and emotionally traumatic. This may result in immediately obvious feeding, sleeping or behavioural symptoms which can often be cleared very quickly with treatment.
