Craniosacral Therapy

 

 

Craniosacral Therapy is a hands-on, safe and gentle alternative therapy that has a similar philosophy and approach to that of osteopathy- in fact, it is a modality that was created by an osteopath in the 1930s. The focus is on how well your body is working as a whole system. Where movement of parts or systems in the body is restricted or blocked, there is pain, discomfort and inhibited wellness. Craniosacral Therapy is a hands-on, safe and gentle alternative therapy that has a similar philosophy and approach to that of osteopathy- in fact, it is a modality that was created by an osteopath in the 1930s. The focus is on how well your body is moving as part of a whole; when there is disconnect, there is pain, discomfort and inhibited wellness. 

 

One of the key outcomes of Craniosacral Therapy is the regulation of the central nervous system. This is achieved by removing restrictions in the membranes around the brain and spinal cord to increase the flow of cerebrospinal fluid (CSF).

CSF has a vital role- it cushions and protects the brain and spine, and it allows the central nervous system to function optimally.  Increasing the flow of CSF creates many benefits to physical and mental wellbeing.
