Craniosacral Therapy is an extremely gentle and effective 'hands-on' treatment. The touch is extremely light and non-invasive, encouraging a very deep state of relaxation. This deep state of relaxation helps trigger the body's own self-healing mechanisms, relieving symptoms at the deepest level. The client is usually lying on the couch on their back but they can also lie on their side or be treated in a chair. In a treatment, I will lightly cradle your head (cranium) or place my hands at the base of your spine (sacrum) or on the shoulders or ankles.
Craniosacral Therapy is safe and beneficial for people of all ages and states of health. Indeed, it is often appropriate when other
therapies may be unsafe, such as during pregnancy, or after an operation, accident, or injury. It can offer great benefit to those going through chemotherapy or radiotherapy.
I qualified in 1997 from The College of Craniosacral Therapy, the most established college in Europe, and have been a Registered Craniosacral Therapist since then. My area of interest and expertise is in working with muscular-skeletal problems such as neck and back pain or sciatica. In addition, I have a lot of experience in supporting those with chronic pain or stress-related symptoms as well as those recovering from surgery, chemotherapy or radiotherapy. I do not usually work with babies or very young children but am happy to support mothers through pregnancy.
I am extremely experienced in working with the following conditions:
Back pain, sciatica
Muscular aches and pains
Depression and anxiety
Stress-related symptoms, insomnia
TMJ or jaw problems
And because Craniosacral Therapy promotes such a deep state of relaxation, it can also be just a treat rather than a treatment. There are Craniosacral Therapists in many spas here Britain (Cedar Falls, Champneys) as well as in the United States and Australia.
A Craniosacral Therapy session last 50 minutes.
