Cranial Sacral Therapy
Craniosacral Therapy is a natural and gentle treatment which can be beneficial for minor ailments or persistent chronic health problems and is safe for both adults and babies /children. Using a very light touch the practitioner can assess and encourage the body to aid its own natural healing process. The client remains fully clothed and most people find it a very pleasant and relaxing experience.
The training is biodynamic in its approach orienting to the body’s natural wisdom and inherent change. These changes will be physiological and psycho-emotional. The body’s own priorities for change are listened for and encouraged to arise. The art of the therapist is to connect with the underlying forces of health and facilitate a process of natural reorganisation. These forces express as subtle motion of tissues and fluids that can be felt by sensitive hands. Biodynamic craniosacral therapy takes a whole-person approach to healing and the inter-connectedness of mind, body and spirit are deeply acknowledged.
Sensations felt can include gentle pulsations or, most importantly, a profound sense of relaxation. The practitioner works with the gentle motion of fluids, which surround the brain (inside the cranium) and the spine (which ends at the sacrum). BCST works on many different levels within the body and can therefore influence health in different bodily structures such as the immune system, musculo-skeletal system, organs and connective tissue.
