Craniosacral Therapy improves the flow of the Cerebral Spinal fluid which bathes the brain and the spinal chord. The natural, unhindered flow of this fluid underpins and function and health of all cells and tissues of the body...and brain. We know that when the craniosacral system is optimal, then the body through our connective tissue is brought back into balance. Fascia is the connective tissue throughout the body, linking from head to foot - literally it stops us from falling apart!
Often parts of the fascia gets stuck, stiff, hard or tight and this acts as a block, preventing the flow of energy, cell-to-cell communication, nutrients and blood - all necessary for the body to heal itself.
There are many causes of this, including accidents, shock and trauma. Over time there is a cumulative effect on the body, creating difficult physiological disease and buried emotional issues, which negatively affects the quality of our life.
Without using any outside force e.g. massage or manipulation, this therapy aids the release and resolves tension patterns, viz "stuckness". This in turn allows the body to return to its own natural flows. Without any paths of resistance for us to adapt around - a new easier organisation releases energy available and a permanent healing event has occurred.
Our role is quite different to many other complementary therapists (assess-fix-reassess model), because; Craniosacral therapists ' listen' to your body and trust in its intelligence for finding balance (homeostasis) and correct itself. Listening alone, in a safe environment is often all that it needed to unlock whatever the root problem was that was causing your symptoms. Occasionally, we may augment and facilitates your intrinsic rhythms that lead to profound healing.
Our framework is unlike the medical model, (used by NHS). Craniosacral therapy works with your wholeness body-mind-emotions-mental-spiritual as a whole "being-ness" and is orientation to your health.
Craniosacral Therapy could be very benefical for you!

What to expect during a treatment session
The session will begin with sitting together and having a brief discussion. (If it is the first session, we would go through your case history, also)
This part is important part of the treatment experience to help you 'arrive' and orient to how you are feeling.
We would talk also things that give you a sense of 'okayness' or things that bring some happiness into your life. We track this to a felt sense in the body, known as "resources".
You would be invited to remove your shoes - and lay down on a comfortable couch, on your back. I would offer you a 'cosy' blanket for comfort.
I then would stand at the side and after a few words and moments, go towards the feet. After more 'settling' there at your feet, I may move to a number of possible hand holds, especially the cranium and sacrum.
People experience different things during their sessions; examples include their fascia moving around on its own, muscles letting go of tension, heat or cold sensations, emotions coming up and twitching movements. There is not a lot talking, but of course if you would like to share your emerging experiences as they are happening in your body, great! Sometimes, I might suggest a breath to help you access the feelings in your body...or re orient to the present moment. This is especially likely for those of you that find yourself are "in your head" a lot!
Each session can often provide very different yet powerful, gentle experiences that your mind/body needed. Overtime, with regular session healing goes 'deeper' as we are able to integrate and access more resources. Typical developments of healing include;
The treatment room is spacious, light and airy. Candles.
Egyptian cotton couch coverings - very clean and changed freqently!
Water and toilet facilities will be available throughout. Foot stool for those a bit shorter. Extra pillows and blankets are also available.
