What is Craniosacral Therapy?
Biodynamic Craniosacral Therapy is a holistic touch therapy that focuses on settling the nervous system to cultivate greater health and well-being.
Craniosacral therapy (CST) is a type of manual therapy that employs incredibly light touch to stimulate the movement of cerebrospinal fluid within the body. CST uses gentle hold techniques to release tension in the craniosacral system, which includes the skull, spine, sacrum and cerebrospinal fluid that surrounds the brain and spinal cord. By releasing this tension, therapists can improve the flow of cerebrospinal fluid, tap into the parasympathetic nervous system, helping calm the body, reduce pain and discomfort.
How does CST work?
During a craniosacral therapy session, the therapist will assess the craniosacral system and identify any areas of tension or restriction. We then use gentle techniques to release these restrictions, which can help to improve the flow of cerebrospinal fluid and reduce pain and discomfort.
Craniosacral therapy is a safe and non-invasive form of therapy, making it an excellent choice for people of all ages and health conditions. It is particularly beneficial for people who suffer from chronic pain, headaches and migraines, TMJ disorders, sleep disorders, stress and anxiety, fibromyalgia, PTSD, as it can help to calm these symptoms and improve overall well-being.

Benefits of Craniosacral Therapy
Craniosacral therapy is a holistic therapy that is believed to offer a range of benefits. Many people have reported relief from migraines and headaches, as well as positive changes in joint mobility, posture alignment, fatigue levels, anxiety symptoms, sleeping patterns, and even digestive issues. It’s also known to help heal from medical procedures such as surgeries or dental work. Further research suggests that CST may offer other potential benefits such as improved immunity and heart rate variability.
Craniosacral therapy’s potential benefits include
Reducing pain: Craniosacral therapy is said to help alleviate pain caused by tension and restrictions in the skull and sacrum.
Improving the function of the central nervous system: By releasing tension in the skull and spine, craniosacral therapy may improve the function of the central nervous system, relieving underlying symptoms.
Relieving stress: CST may reduce stress that’s harboring itself in the body, which can help with relaxation, anxiety relief, and blood pressure.
Improving the quality of sleep: Craniosacral therapy is often used as a holistic approach to fixing sleep disorders because it deactivates the Reticular alarm system, a network in the brain that regulates sleep patterns.
Improving mobility and flexibility: Because of its benefits to the central nervous system, craniosacral therapy is said to help improve mobility and flexibility, especially that involving the spine and head.
Because it is non-invasive, results may vary from person to person depending on a variety of factors like lifestyle choices and the patient’s physical condition before treatment. As a result, we urge patients to remember that CST should always be viewed as part of a comprehensive approach to better health rather than as an end-all solution for all ailments.
While craniosacral therapy is thought to provide these benefits, it has not been scientifically proven to be effective for all conditions. Before attempting any alternative therapy, it is always advisable to consult with your healthcare professional.
What happens during the session?
This is a fully clothed session, unless incorporated with other modalities. It involves the experience of being present in your body, safely with whatever is arising. The therapist will guide you gently with hands and meditative like prompts will be given to aid this. No need to try to come in relaxed or do anything, the therapist will support your body and get in touch with the cerebral spinal flow to help your body reorganise and find its own alignment.
If that all doesn’t make sense, just know that we are trying to calm your autonomic nervous system down, which will help your mind and body settle down, allowing space for your body to heal. Many clients have reported much better, calmer sleep post session.
Please always speak up if you feel uncomfortable, we can adjust the session to suit you.
