During the course of our lives our bodies become patterned, shaped and conditioned according to how we are able to deal with previous and current stresses or traumas. If these experiences are overwhelming, they become locked in the body, creating pains, aches and illnesses - until such a time as we are able to access resources that allow them to be processed and released.
Due to the accumulation of events like physical injuries, emotional and psychological stresses, birth traumas and toxicity, tissues can become imprinted with the memory of unresolved experiences.
The intention of treatment is to facilitate the release of these stored tensions deep in the Central Nervous System so that every other system in the body can self-correct. This is done in a gentle way.
The movement of the spinal fluid within and around the nervous system creates a vital body rhythm, equally important to health and well-being as the heartbeat and the breath.
For a treatment, you will lie fully clothed on the massage bed and the practitioner will mainly hold the head (cranium) and lower back (sacrum). It is a very gentle contact, so that you will feel at ease and most probably notice a sense of deep relaxation.
Cranio-sacral Therapy is suitable and safe for people of all ages including babies, children and the elderly, and can be effective in acute or chronic cases.
