Cranio-Sacral therapy is a gentle and profound touch-based therapy founded in osteopathy. It recognises that body, mind and feelings are interwoven and so engages with the physical, mental and emotional aspects of our being.
Whilst the Cranio-Sacral system consists of the bones of the cranium (head) and sacrum (tailbone), the membranous system and cerebrospinal fluid, the treatment considers the whole person in relation to their environment and to everything they have experienced in life so far. The therapist tunes into natural forces within the body to enable the system to express and release restrictions. Underlying 'vitality' which is fundamental to our health, development and wellbeing is strengthened.
By listening to our body, we can bring awareness and new perspective, enabling and empowering us to overcome and accept past or present challenges whilst building resilience and internal resources.
Cranio-Sacral therapists are not trained to diagnose and if you are concerned about any health issue, please seek advice from your GP.
