CranioSacral Therapy (CST) - a gentle hands-on method of evaluating and enhancing the function of the craniosacral system, this physiological system helps protect and assist the delicate tissues of our nervous system; such as the brain, spinal cord and fine nerve fibres. It is comprised of the bones of the head, spine, face and mouth as well as the fascia and more delicate membranes and fluids contained within.
Children of all ages, inc. infants benefit from this essential therapy. CST has a good reputation for its effectiveness in helping children with special needs, all along the spectrum of autism and learning disabilities, including ADD, ADHD, dyslexia and dyscalculia, respond well to it, as CST can lay the groundwork for improved neurological functioning. An intense gifted child with psychomotor overexcitability, who displays extreme energy and activity levels can also benefit from the treatment, as psychomotor overexcitabilities are caused by a heightened energy in the neuromuscular system. CranioSacral Therapy also works with emotions and relieves the symptoms of stress or tension.
Treatment is very easy to receive - you lie fully clothed on a treatment table while the therapist makes a light contact with their hands. Try thinking of a vase on a table with a tablecloth on it. If you closed your eyes and pulled a corner of the tablecloth, you’d have a good idea of where the vase was, even if you couldn’t see it. The therapist isn’t going to be pulling you, but you get the idea. Because they’re sensing what’s going on in your whole body, the contact can be anywhere - it may be at your head or under your back, it may be at your feet, they may move around or stay in one place. Each therapist has their own approach. During a session you may become aware of heat, tingling, pulsations or other sensations in your body, and often a deep sense of relaxation. Imagine an ice cube. It started off as soft, easy- flowing water but it was put in a rather stressful situation in a freezer, and now it looks and feels quite different. If you put it on your hand though, it doesn’t take long before it starts to warm, soften and melt. It returns completely to its original state.
We have a built in capacity to recover from overwhelming experiences, what CST does is harness and encourage the body’s ability to do just that.
Due to its gentleness and effectiveness, many people include CranioSacral Therapy as a component in their personal wellness programs. Please, get in touch and book your treatment!
