Craniosacral Therapy

How is Craniosacral Therapy performed?

Craniosacral Therapy is a gentle, non-invasive manipulative technique. Seldom does the therapist apply pressure in excess of five grams or the equivalent weight of a British 20p piece. Examination is done by testing for movement in various parts of the system. Often, when testing is completed, the restriction has been removed & the system is able to self-correct.

Trained therapists are able to palpate the motion of the craniosacral system via the bones of the scull, sacrum & coccyx because they attach to the membranes which actually enclose the cerebrospinal fluid.

How does Craniosacral Therapy help you?

Craniosacral Therapy offers a very respectful approach of encouraging the body to realign by the use of gentle manipulation of the bones of the skull.

It has been well proven to be a helpful & effective treatment for a surprisingly wide range of conditions.

Some more common difficulties that Craniosacral Therapy may help are chronic pain, reduced mobility – (stiff joints), low energy, headaches & migraines, jaw (temporomandibular Joint) problems, neuralgia (including trigeminal), learning difficulties such as dyslexia & dyscalclia, menstrual & menopausal problems & clumsiness. In newborns, infants & children colic, hyperactivity, feeding & sleeping problems, & faulty development are often helped by Craniosacral Therapy. Routine evaluation of newborns often reveals & permits the easy release of subtle dysfunction later in life. This applies not only where birth has been difficult, but also with “normal” deliveries.

What is involved?

An initial consultation involves taking a medical history as well as a full case history, to assess the treatment required. This won’t commit you to a lengthy & expensive course of treatment – it won’t commit you to anything.
