Craniosacral therapy works with the energy currents, fascia and other soft tissues, as well as various fluid circulations within the body. A lot of the treatment focuses on the tissues surrounding our skull (cranium), pelvis (sacrum) and spine. This is our “core”, and it houses our most vital organs and important structures, such as our central nervous system, brain, heart and the gut.
Imbalances within these areas can cause complex physical and mental health issues, and equally, resolving these blockages can result in positive a flow-on effect on many other seemingly unrelated areas of our wellbeing.
During the treatment, which happens through clothing, the therapist tunes into the fluidic rhythms within the body. By observing their quality, symmetry and tone, possible imbalances or causes of physical or emotional un-ease, can be located and treated.
The techniques often feel light and gentle but they can create powerful shifts within the physical body and the subconscious mind. A client may experience various physical sensations during treatment; heat, tingling and twitching are common responses as the tissues start to unwind. Emotional reactions such as tears, giggles and memories popping up are also normal and welcomed.
Craniosacral therapy is often used to treat complaints such as headaches, migraines, jaw and tooth problems, back pain, stress and hormone related as well as chronic pain conditions, insomnia, anxiety etc.
Receiving regular treatments is also a wonderful way to maintain health and vitality and stay balanced. Many people also use CST as part of their spiritual practice as the treatments often induce a deep meditative state which in turn allows insights and inner guidance to surface.
