Craniosacral Therapy (CST) works in a gentle way with the body but at the same time at a very deep mind-body-inner level and it can be quite a profoundly transformational experience.
CST is a presence where communication is not reliant upon words and where words, when used, are like drops of healing rain.
CST works with the underlying causes as well as specific systems and it supports your body’s ability to balance, restore and heal itself enabling you to shift from the tensions and stresses to a calmer state allowing our systems to rest and recover as well as rebuild our underlying energy.
The session typically last up to an hour and you remain fully clothed, usually lie face up or on your side. With children this can vary and the sessions may be shorter and may be done on the flow whilst playing with toys or even performed off the body rather than touching the body.
I take a full written case history, listening in a caring and non-judgemental approach to the reasons for your visit. Every client will be different so their experience with Craniosacral Therapy is quite individual and no sessions are the same but as a guide, you may feel calm and energised, with increased clarity of mind and a sense of relief, reassured that you haven’t imagined it or caused your suffering.
During a session
Your practitioner will take a written case history, listening with care to the reasons for your visit. This part of the session is important, both for gathering information and to establish a good understanding with your practitioner. The session typically lasts an hour, although this can vary. You remain clothed and will usually lie face up or on your side, or you may be seated. The practitioner makes light contact with your head, the base of your spine, and other areas, encouraging your body to relax and begin to make the changes it needs. Because the body functions as a whole, your practitioner may focus on areas other than where your symptoms occur.
