H0W CAN CRANIOSACRAL THERAPY HELP ME? Some clients who have experienced Craniosacral Therapy, have said that it has been helpful in the following conditions: Alleviates or Releases Physical Pain - Reduced Stress Levels - Supported Emotional Issues - Re-establishing Energy Levels - Supports General Well being - Deeper Levels of Relaxation. This treatment can also give a comfortable feeling of expansion and softening throughout the body while its aims to promotes a healthy functioning within the body's own natural processes.
WHAT HAPPENS IN A CRANIOSACRAL THERAPY SESSION? Craniosacral Therapy session takes place with you lying on a couch fully clothed and care is taken that each touch is comfortable to your particular needs. The therapist will either sits or stands and makes light contacts to various places on the body, (mainly cranium or sacrum). The Craniosacral Therapy session is a safe and quiet space where you and your body can relax and response to the gentle touch used by a therapist. The Craniosacral therapists will begin by 'listen' to the body and where it wants to be acknowledged. The body will guide the therapist often intuitively its needs and to the 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 the body.
