Craniosacral Therapy

Craniosacral Therapy (CST) is a gentle yet powerful treatment that offers an opportunity for the body to recognise and release deeply held areas of tension and contraction that the body has absorbed through life’s knocks and shocks, stresses and strains.

Often these patterns of contraction become so embedded we become unconscious of them yet we keep getting repetitive aches, discomfort and unease physically, emotionally and in our general well-being.

Craniosacral Therapy uses light touch to listen to the bodies stories and the subtle movement of the tissues from cerebral spinal fluid through the membranes and fascia down to the bones.

As the whole body/mind system is held by the practitioner in a safe and comfortable manner, you are in control at all times. The body is invited to relax into a sense of primary flow and connect with underlying forces of health. This allows the whole body/mind system an opportunity to release, restore and integrate into healthy function.

Who is it for?

Craniosacral therapy is suitable for people of all ages from babies through to the elderly. Some of the conditions it can help in the relief of include:

  • Stress related conditions such as anxiety, insomnia and exhaustion
  • Recovery from accidents, injuries and general aches and pains
  • Physical trauma
  • Post traumatic stress disorder
  • Hormonal imbalances
  • Digestive problems
  • And many more….

What happens during a session?

After an initial health questionnaire to asses your requirements you would lie or occasionally sit on a treatment couch always fully clothed and i would hold the body with a gentle contact. At times during the session we may talk about the what is happening during the treatment but also a session may not involve any talking until the end.

Appointments last approximately 1hr. Follow up sessions are dependant on the individual and the condition being treated.

“I have been having regular craniosacral therapy with Deborah for a few months and the sessions have totally transformed my relationship with myself and my ability to come back to a quiet and centred place. Deborah is a gifted therapist, she is a compassionate and sensitive listener and I feel has always worked intuitively with wherever I am at on the day. I would highly recommend her to anyone.”
