What is Craniosacral Therapy?
Craniosacral Therapy (CST) is a powerful yet subtle bodywork that functions directly on the central nervous system. Following the craniosacral rhythm (CSR) provides direct communication with the CNS that allows us a unique relationship with the client’s needs. It assists relief and resolution of physical and emotional trauma. It also provides immediate and lasting relief from stress. Furthermore it helps us contemplate life from a place of detached compassion and wellbeing that offers insight, perspective and acceptance.
Initially we adjust the bones of the skull, spine, hips and associated tissues to restore correct function, nutritional supply and detoxification of the central nervous system. Furthermore CST locates and releases trauma energy that has become stuck in the tissues causing ongoing problems. It also provides a deeply relaxed state in which things from the past often surface and resolve themselves effortlessly. Dialoguing is sometimes used to help the client gain a clearer connection with what is trying to arise from their subconscious.
Above all Craniosacral Therapy is a gentle form of bodywork, a silent psychotherapy. Many clients say it is like being in a beautiful waking dream that resets them and leaves them feeling balanced and integrated. Even the few who claim to feel nothing exhibit deep sighs of relaxation and leave notably more relaxed and positive.
