Biodynamic CranioSacral Therapy
Craniosacral Therapy is a subtle yet powerful therapy which assists and works with the body’s own natural capacity to heal.
The Craniosacral system is comprised of the brain and spinal column as well as the fluid that bathes it. This fluid is called the Craniosacral fluid. It affects all the systems of the body – the nervous system, cardio-vascular system, immune system, muscular-skeletal system- as well as the organs, tissues and fluids. By working directly with this fluid, the whole body and all its parts are addressed.
The Craniosacral system was first discovered and described by William G Sutherland, an Osteopath in the early 1900’s who believed that the Craniosacral fluid holds the primary life force or inner spark which exists at our core; no matter how much disease or imbalance there may be, this spark remains constant. He called it the breath of life. Craniosacral Therapy acknowledges this Breath of Life as a person’s fundamental vitality which is never lost and lies at the core of our health.
As a therapist, I hold a space of deep presence and I listen, With very subtle touch (over clothes), I come into relationship with parts of the nervous system. The beauty of this approach is that the therapist doesn’t ‘do’, but just by being interested and coming into relationship to what simply ‘is’, there is space for integration and connection to the clients’ innate internal center of resource and vitality. This is enough to encourage healing.
Because Craniosacral Therapy is very gentle and non-invasive, it is especially useful for babies, pregnant woman, the elderly and those in acute and chronic pain.
I am a member of the CSTA body of accredited Craniosacral therapists, ensuring that I have undertaken appropriate training, have regular supervision and regularly pursue CPD opportunities.
