How Can A Craniosacral Therapy Treatment Help Me?
Some clients who have experienced Craniosacral Therapy, have said that it has been helpful in the following conditions:
WHAT HAPPENS IN A CRANIOSACRAL THERAPY SESSION?
The Craniosacral Therapy session takes place with you lying on a couch fully clothed and care is taken that each touch is comfortable throughout the session. The therapist either sits or stands and makes light contacts to various places on the body, (mainly cranium or sacrum). If you are unable to lie down a treatment can be given in a chair.
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. Craniosacral Therapy does not seek to replace conventional medicine but can work successfully alongside it. 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.
