Cranio Sacral Therapy (CST) is a hands-on therapy, with a gentle and soft touch of the hands.
The cranio sacral system comprises of the skull, sacrum, all vertebrae in between, and the fluid (which is floating around the brain and along the spine to feed the muscles, organs and your fascias around them).
It’s a therapy where all blockages along the spine, in the internal organs, fascias or in the muscles will get released. With the help of special hand grips, I am able to find these blockages and remove them.
Circulation in the blood system, lymphatic system and, of course, cranio sacral system will improve during and after the treatment. Symptoms can be resolved and I am able to get to the real core of the issue.
The tension in your muscles and organs will be released and everything will be well aligned.
You will be able to breathe without issues again.
Finally, liquids will be flowing and your body system will work again.
My approach is to listen to your body and help it solve the problem naturally.
The self-healing mechanism will be activated again and your body will be able to heal itself again.
Who can benefit from CST?
People may come for Craniosacral Therapy because they have acute physical problems like headaches or bad backs, or long-standing problems both physical and emotional. Others come for ongoing support in their busy lives and for help to meet life’s challenges.
Because it is so gentle and non-invasive, Craniosacral Therapy is suitable for everyone from newborns to the elderly. Mothers and babies often come for problems associated with difficult or traumatic births. Letting go of tension and fear held in the body enables both to settle into calmness.
Craniosacral Therapy supports your body’s innate ability to balance, restore and heal itself, as well as helping to reduce stress and build your underlying energy. The practitioner senses tensions in the body and helps to release them in a supported and comfortable way. During or after a session you may feel calm and energised, with increased clarity of mind and a feeling of well-being.
For advice about whether Craniosacral Therapy is right for you, please speak to your practitioner.
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.
After a session there is occasionally a short period of adjustment as part of the healing process, where you may become more aware of symptoms. Sometimes people report relief after only one or two sessions. For long-standing problems further sessions may be needed. Some people find they benefit from regular treatment over an extended period of time and say that, as well as noticing improvement in their physical or emotional symptoms, they feel that they have more awareness of their own needs and strengths, and their quality of life has improved.
Craniosacral Therapy is not intended as primary healthcare but to work alongside the relationship you have with your doctor.
