  • What can I expect from a Craniosacral Therapy session?
    During a session, with your consent I will use light touch on your body, this could be on your head, feet, sacrum, chest and back. You may become aware of heat, tingling, pulsations or other sensations and you are likely to feel a deep sense of relaxation. We may also work with Somatic Experiencing to bring your awareness to holding and activation in your nervous system. Often, with subsequent treatments, clients find that they are much more able to access a state of stillness and calm whenever they need to and in everyday life.
  • What is Craniosacral Therapy?
    Craniosacral Therapy is a subtle yet profound hands-on technique, that developed from osteopathy and indigenous bodywork techniques. It supports the body’s natural tendency to find health and optimum balance by using soft touch to relieve the body of restrictions in the tissues. By supporting the body to release tension and find greater alignment to health, Craniosacral Therapy supports the body to relax and regulate. With this regulation, effects of stress and emotional overwhelm are reduced and the body has more capacity to heal. In addition to physical benefits, many individuals find that craniosacral therapy also has a positive impact on their emotional and mental well-being.
  • What are the benefits of regular Craniosacral Therapy?
    Regular Craniosacral Therapy can support your nervous system to find regulation meaning that you will be able to shift out of states such 'fight or flight' or 'shutdown' with more ease. It also helps to build connection to your body and self as a sense of safety becomes more available. With this connection to safety and inner resources, your capacity for emotions, feelings, sensations can increase reducing feelings and the effects of overwhelm. On a more physical level it as the body is able to access a more balanced state its healing capacities increase, helping the body to shift to a healthier state of balance and homeostasis. This can support inflammatio, the immune system and symptoms of stress.
