CRANIOSACRAL THERAPY - listening hands
The concepts embodies in Craniosacral Therapy practise is reflective of the current revolution in exploring our mind and body as a connected, self regulatory system, contained within, and influenced by its environment.
Craniosacral Therapy significantly alters lives
Craniosacral Therapy (CST) recognises PRIMARY RESPIRATION, as the driving force of growth and recuperation. Expressed through the fluid system, and modified by biodynamic influences, this inhalation – exhalation cyclical pulse is reflected in our whole system in a polyrhythmic fashion. Dr Sills, the father of CST, first identified this tidal fluctuation, and called it the BREATH OF LIFE.
A Craniosacral therapist is trained to recognise the clues that reflect health and healing. They will have palpation skills which reflect safety and facilitate natural forces to allow healing to take place.
