Craniosacral therapy is a gentle way of working with the body using light touch.
I work by making a light contact with the (clothed) body, always negotiated and client-led, and ‘listening’ with my hands for changes in the natural flow of fluids and vibrancy which may indicate areas impacted by trauma or disease. I assist in establishing stillness within the body, a state of balance from which the forces contained there can resolve, restoring harmony and vitality. Clients often report a sense of deep relaxation during treatment, sometimes describing a blissful experience. The body is able to settle and respond to my trained touch with its own healing intentions because I begin by establishing a sense of safety and well-being. Resourcing in this way is the starting point for healing. Listening to the body with my hands also enables the body to begin to listen to itself, where internal communication has been compromised or broken down. I support the nervous system to adjust such that natural homeostasis is restored.
