WHAT IS CRANIOSACRAL THERAPY?
Craniosacral Therapy is a non-manipulative treatment, which stems from Cranial Osteopathy. It is a practice that considers the entire person as a connected whole, physically, emotionally and energetically.
Using light hand contacts areas of tension, blockages and imbalance, within the body can be observed. By assisting the body's natural healing mechanisms, relaxation, release and further healing are promoted.
During a session, I take a case history and clients can lie or sit, fully clothed. Contacts are made with the skull and the base of the spine, but may move to other areas relevant to the treatment. Every practitioner is different in their approach to treatments, and I encorporate sounds and tones during the sessions.
