Cranio Sacral Therapy Cranio Sacral Therapy is a form of healing developed by osteopaths over one hundred years ago.They detected a rhythmic motion; an ebb and flow of cerebrospinal fluid bathing the brain and spinal cord which in turn affects the membranes and connective tissue encasing the bodies’ vital organs, nerves and muscles.. One of the key functions of CST is to release restrictions in the membranes around the brain and spinal cord, increasing the flow of cerebrospinal fluid and allowing the central nervous system to function optimally.
Physical injuries and emotional traumas can cause body tissue to contract; tension can be stored in the body in this way, restricting the natural functions of the bodily systems, giving rise to problems over time, either physical, emotional or psychological.Through engaging with individuals, CST therapists are trained to ‘listen’ to the subtle physiology of the body at a deep tissue level and help facilitate the body to release the patterns of these contractions to attain better health.
A treatment session lasts one hour and involves lying on a treatment table, fully clothed whilst the therapist lays their hands on your body. You may feel a deep sense of relaxation and may become aware of sensations such as tingling, heat and pulsations. The treatment is very gentle and involves no manipulation the release of tension extends into everyday life.Cranio Sacral Therapy – 60 minutes
