Hello, I'm Kirsty
I am here to support you with Craniosacral Therapy as a certified practitioner of CSTA in Bristol and Exeter.
CST has been so important for me on my journey, supporting me into relationship with my health, my body and a stillness that I didn't know was there.
I have been in awe again and again with what can happen when the intelligence of the body is given the space, compassion and support to come forward, creating the potential for more health, ease and connection.
"I was taken away by how gentle the therapy was, but how much shifted within my body during Kirsty's session. I could feel my physical body undergoing subtle changes to bring itself back to peace. My body knew what it needed, Kirsty gave it the space listen and facilitated the freedom within myself to let the changes take place. I'd recommend Kirsty to everyone she is a calming, open and gifted practitioner." - Rosie
Tell me about Craniosacral Therapy
Craniosacral Therapy evolved out of osteopathy but engages with timeless knowledge and understanding that originated with indigenous and ancient civilisations. It is a gentle hands-on technique that uses light touch and presence to engage with the different layers of our bodies; the physical, the emotional and the energetic in particular engaging with the movement of the cerebrospinal fluid which is in and around the central nervous system.
During a session you could experience the easing of physical tightness and discomfort, connecting to emotions, peace, deep relaxation, clarity and sense of grounding. By relieving tension in the central nervous system and the rest of the body, CST promotes a feeling of well-being by easing pain and boosting health and immunity.
What can CST do for me?
Nervous System Regulation
In today's society constant stimulation and pressures can mean many of us live with a highly activated nervous system. This can manifest as difficulty sleeping, IBS, high blood pressure and emotional stress. Craniosacral Therapy supports the autonomic nervous system to regulate and find balance.
It's so easy to spend all day in our head with thoughts that just seem to go round and round. CST helps to settle your mind and support you to drop into your body. Also by giving time to connect with your body and the more subtle processes that are taking places, CST can help restore a more embodied sense of being and a more cohesive relationship between the body and mind.
Throughout life, we accumulate areas of physical and emotional tension which over time can cause dis-ease in the body, CST supports the body to release this tension, realign and find balance
