Craniosacral therapy is a gentle yet profound non invasive, hands-on treatment for the whole body. Performed on a massage table. The treatment is focussed on supporting the health of the whole being, especially the nervous system. This is done by focussing and supporting the health of the whole being.
Craniosacral therapists understand how an optimally functioning nervous system works. They are trained for years on how to use acute perceptional skills to perceive subtle physiological changes. They are also aware of the energetic map that underlies ones basic health and symptomolgy.
They believe that the health is never lost no matter what the condition is. They use their ability to identify the parts if the nervous system that are not functioning optimally and the awareness of the “always available health” in the body to assist the system in bringing itself back to balance. This supports greater ease and helps the body decrease symptoms.
This gentle, hands on cradling is said to release tensions deep in the body to reduce pain and dysfunction, unstick blockages and muscle contractions and improve a number of health complaints.
Using a soft gentle therapeutic touch generally no greater than 5 grams, practitioners feel the pulse of the spine and the fluid in between the cranium and sacrum. This pulsation sensation is said to be different from the heart beat. With a gentle touch, practitioners release restrictions in the soft tissue that surrounds the CNS so the fluid flows more efficiently helping the body function normal again.
Each session for adults last for 45 mins to 50 mins and for children lasts for 20 mins to 30 mins.
Biodynamic Craniosacral therapy takes a whole body approach to healing and the connections of the mind, body and spirit are deeply acknowledged. It is an effective form of treatment for a wide range of illness helping create the optimal conditions of health, encouraging vitality and facilitating a sense of well being. It is suitable for people of all ages including babies, children and the elderly. It is also effective in chronic conditions.
The emphasis in Biodynamic Craniosacral Therapy is to help resolve the trapped forces that underlie goon patterns of disease and fragmentations in both body and mind. This involves the practitioners “ listening through the hands” to the body’s subtle rhythms and any patterns of inertia or congestion.Through the development of subtle palpatory skills the practitioner can read through the story of the body, identify places where issues are held and then follow the natural priorities for healing as directed by the patients own physiology.
The intention of treatment is to facilitate the expression of Breadth Of Life and also enhances the body’s own self healing and self regulating capabilities.
This is done in a non invasive way as the practitioner subtly and gently encourages the conditions that allow for reemergence of primary respiration motion. Further more, the practitioner’s deep and clear quality of presence can become a reflective mirror for the patient and an invaluable cue for their potential for change.
