Craniosacral Therapy Can Help!​

LISTENING TO THE BODY AND RESPECT HOW IT FEELS IS A POWERFUL ACT OF SELF LOVE

Craniosacral Therapy In Practice:

Craniosacral therapy is a gentle hands on treatment that based in the stillness of the presence moment and the skill to listen both to the client and their body systems. A trained and experience craniosacral therapist has developed their sense of touch to the degree that they can perceive patterns of injury, stress, trauma or grief held within the physical body. These patterns are the unresolved body memories of past events, such as mental and emotional stress, abuse, abandonment, birth traumas, surgery, falls and injuries. Body memory can be felt by the therapist as tension, tightness, compression, stiffness, contraction, pulling, twisting, lifelessness, withdrawal or absence. Any such adverse alterations or disturbances within the body can interfere with the craniosacral system and impact on the expression of health. If left untreated symptoms may progress, causing a physical or mental health disorder in the future. By being present to unresolved patterns and using the listening, gentle touch the craniosacral therapist reminds the client’s body, what it is holding on too. This often naturally catalyses the processing, release and integration of what has happened and aids the transition into healing and recovery. As the body and mind become free of any limitations imposed by the events and conditioning of the past, the client may then experience an improvement in their condition, by becoming more looser physically and feeling more in balanced mentally and emotionally and confident to engage back into their life.

What Happens In A Craniosacral Therapy Session?

Craniosacral Therapy session takes place with you lying on a couch fully clothed. Care is taken that each touch is comfortable to your particular needs. I will either sits or stands and makes light contacts to various places on your body, (mainly cranium or sacrum). I will begin with this light gentle touch on your shoulders while 'listening” to your body and to where it wants to be acknowledged. The body will guide me often intuitively its needs and to the level of contact. There is no protocol to be followed or a complete set of contact holds, nor is there a time limit placed on a specific hold. It could be that the whole session is around the sacrum as this is what the body requires! The body's intelligence will decide the order to resolve the problem held within the body. Think of a knotted ball of wool, your intelligence knows which 'knot' to deal with and knows which order to move through to get to the ones in the centre without knotting up more 'knots' in the process. This is the same as the intelligence within your body.

Any Contra-Indication?

There are certain individuals who should not use Craniosacral therapy, these include a history of recent traumatic head injuries which may include cranio-bleed or skull-fractures, severe bleeding disorders, cranial diagnosed aneurysm. Depending on your symptoms you may be asked at your first session whether you have consulted your GP or you may be recommended to do so before treatment can take place. 

Payment Method:

Payment by cash, cheque or bank transfer. I presently do not have the facility to accept payment by debit or credit cards. Each appointment is to be paid for after treatment.

Craniosacral Therapy After Treatment:

With alternative and complementary medicine there is occasionally a period of adjustment, after the treatment when minor discomfort may occur as a result of the healing processes being activated. It is generally short lived and usually seen as a sign of positive natural re-balancing of the body and its systems. A Craniosacral Therapy treatment is a very relaxing therapy and has none of the side effects that come with medications! Craniosacral Therapy does not seek to replace conventional medicine but can work successfully alongside it. 

What Training Did I undertake to become a Craniosacral Therapist?

My craniosacral therapy training was to study in Anatomy, Physiology, Pathology and Disease before being excepted onto a two year's vocational training on Craniosacral Therapy. Following the completion of the course, I now have to continue to adhere to the ethics and integrity of the Craniosacral Therapy Association (CSTA) and obtain full professional insurance before working with the public. The CSTA requirements are to undergo yearly continuous professional development (CPD) and hold a First Aid Certificate. I am a full member of the association which entitles me to use RCST behind my name, (Registered Craniosacral Therapist).

If I Have Flu Or An Contagious Disease Should I Have Treatment?

"No". As a kindness to me please wait until you are feeling better and not contagious before scheduling a session.

How Many Session Would I Require.

Craniosacral Therapy is tailored to a client's particular needs and state of health. The number of sessions required may vary from person to person. In general, acute conditions often respond well in just a few session however, more chronic issues may need a series of sessions to gain the full benefit. Depending on what health condition you require treatment for, it is advisable to have a couple of sessions to explore whether Craniosacral Therapy is right for you.


How Long Will The Session Last?

The adult's session will last for approximately one hour, 45 minutes treatment and a short consultation at the beginning to discuss any concerns you may have and at the end of the session to discuss anything you may have experienced during the treatment.
