Cranio-sacral therapy is a very gentle holding technique using light touch that can achieve relaxation and release. The body is gently held for a few minutes at a time, and touch can be applied to the head, but also to other parts of the body. It’s a cradling technique and is used to ‘listen’ to the body and support it through releases. Cranio-sacral therapy aids your body’s ability to balance, restore and heal itself and, because it is very gentle, it is suitable for everybody, including babies.
During a consultation I will take a full medical history, including lifestyle and family history. I will also do a physical examination to assess movement and the structure of the client. This may include examination of breathing, blood pressure, nervous system, skin etc.
A companion can be brought along to the session if desired.
The first consultation, examination and treatment can take up to an hour, subsequent treatments will usually be half an hour. After treatment advice about activity will be given if necessary.
