with an hour of gentle craniosacral therapy.
Release emotional stress & physical strain
A GENTLER WAY TO A MORE BALANCED LIFE
What craniosacral therapy can do for you:
Through light touch techniques craniosacral therapy identifies sources of tension linked to impaired functioning of your craniosacral system**. These sources of tension, which often contain emotional stress as well as physical strain, are gently released during treatment to leave you feeling calmer and more relaxed as well as relieving certain symptoms and returning your body to a natural, more balanced state.
*Your craniosacral system comprises of the membranes and fluid that surround, protect and nourish your brain and spinal cord.

Your treatment will involve relaxing on a treatment couch (lying or sitting as necessary) whilst fully clothed. Gentle light-touch techniques will be applied and may be in one particular area of concern or in different locations, which can be from your head to your feet. What you can be certain of is that the contact used to apply the craniosacral techniques is light and non-invasive.
At the beginning details of your medical history will also be discussed with you, to be aware of any medication you may be taking, any accidents or operations you may have had as well as other relevant information such as diet and exercise history.
