Cranio Sacral Therapy by Kate Allardyce
Craniosacral therapy is a gentle yet powerful hands-on therapy that has its origins in osteopathy. It is a whole body approach that works with the body’s natural ability to find health and optimum balance. It works with the subtle rhythmic movements that are expressed by all tissues and living cells that are fundamental to life – known as the ‘Breath of Life’ or craniosacral motion.
The treatment works to help the body release stresses and tensions and past traumas, which remain trapped in the body and restrict healthy body function and movement. The receiver can access a deep state of relaxation and inner stillness that can bring profound recovery and build strength and inner resources to tackle the stresses of life.
Craniosacral therapy is effective for a wide range of conditions and is suitable for babies, children, during pregnancy, elderly people or people with fragile and painful conditions.
During a session patients lie on a couch fully clothed and the practitioner makes light contact on the body – usually on the head,
shoulders, sacrum (bottom of spine) or feet but anywhere on the body can be contacted. The practitioner ‘listens’ with their hands to what is happening in the body and encourages gentle opening and movement where there are areas of restriction. It is a very subtle experience yet deeply dynamic at a micro-movement level. Some sensations may be felt, such as tingling, subtle movements, heat or cold, or a deep sense of stillness, expansion or relaxation.
