Craniosacral therapy is a gentle, non-invasive, hands-on healing modality that focuses on the wave-like rhythmic pulse of the cerebrospinal fluid which is palpable throughout the body.
In the session, the client lies quietly, fully clothed, while the practitioner makes light contact at selected points around the head, torso, knees, and feet.
The practitioner notes what he or she perceives at selected points on the body and in the craniosacral system which consists of the membranes and cerebrospinal fluid that surround and protect the brain and spinal cord.
The goal of craniosacral therapy is to help get rid of restrictions in this system to improve the functioning of the central nervous system and promote physical and emotional healing.
It’s about initiating a healing process which can release the deeply held patterns of disease
– both physical and psychological – which accumulate throughout life as a result of injury, illness or mental attitude, leading to ill-health, lack of energy and holding on to negative standpoints.
