Craniosacral Therapy

What is it?

The treatment of the articular, neurological & muscular connection between the cranium (skull) and the sacrum (tailbone). Through gentle manipulation of the bones in the skull, spinal column & sacrum it aims to relieve tension and restore harmony within the central nervous system.

The body’s central nervous system is where all of our nerves originate, it includes the brain and spinal cord. In a number of conditions, it is relevant to focus on this connection & mobilise or ease any possible blockages. This restores the normal “flow” of cerebrospinal fluid. This form of craniosacral therapy is based on a sound knowledge of the body’s anatomy & physiology.
