CRANIOSACRAL THERAPY - listening hands

The craniosacral concept reflects the current revolution in the understanding of our mind and body as a connected, self regulatory system, within the systems of our environment. 

              Craniosacral Therapy significantly alters lives

Craniosacral Therapy (CST) recognises PRIMARY RESPIRATION, a polyrhythmic inhalation – exhalation cycle, as the driving force of growth and recuperation.  The expression of this pulse is reflected in our whole system. Sutherland, the father of CST,  first recognised this tidal fluctuation, and called it the BREATH OF LIFE.

A Craniosacral therapist is trained to recognise the clues that reflect health and healing, and hold with safety. 

We adapt, moment by moment, to our dynamic world and  unfold  in co-operation with the environment.  This process, which follows universal organising principles, results in a functional form.  In Biodyanmic Craniosacral therapy, we observe unfolding relationships, and the principles can be utilised to great effect.

Craniosacral Therapy allows the nervous system to 'reset'.  Deep stillness and autonomic nervous system regulation has generalised health benefits which can assist in many of the modern chronic complaints, including irritable bowel syndrome, depression, anxiety or chronic fatique.  The list is long!

Babies  with symptoms such as colic,  feeding issues,  sleeplessness, often resolve with craniosacral holding.  Mothers can also benefit from sessions.

Children battling to reach milestones, having tantrums, with sensory deficit disorder or learning difficulties or separation anxiety are found to change. 

Craniosacral therapy and Dentistry could, in the future, become good friends.   The temporomandibular joint needs to be aligned for an even bite. 

... and how do we manage the anxieties of modern living:  Relax ? Whats that ?  

Our bodies are organised around the forces of nature
