Craniosacral Therapy helps unlock what is happening in the body. It treats body disorder, pain and dysfunction by a gentle touch that encourages the body to release restrictions and re-balance with its own energy rather than by imposed, forceful, interventionist techniques. It encourages the person to be more connected with their body.
Craniosacral Therapy recognises the importance of the body functioning as a whole, all systems and structures being integrated and interrelating with each other. Dysfunction in any system will produce compensatory responses throughout the whole body.
Craniosacral Therapy is actually not about treating conditions, but rather helping the person in whom symptoms have arisen regain connection with their inner health.
Treatment is suitable for acute or chronic conditions and can be used in babies, children or older people. There are very few contra indications to the use of Craniosacral Therapy, so it may be used as a therapeutic choice in most situations. It is particularly useful in longstanding and complex pain situations and where there has been poor response to conventional techniques.
