Craniosacral therapy (CST)

Craniosacral Therapy (CST) is a gentle yet profound non-invasive, hands-on treatment for the whole body. With its subtle therapeutic approach, the body has an opportunity to realign and heal. There are natural movements and rhythms within the body which are orchestrated by organising forces, however for a variety of reasons these forces get compromised creating inertia, fragmentation, blocks and lack of flow in our systems, experienced as dis-eases by us. A skilled practitioner will be able to sense the disrupting movements in the body and invite it to start a process where corrections can take place. CST involves gentle techniques that involves deep presence and conversational skills that engage these organising forces in the body,

Much more than a mechanical approach with techniques, it is a therapeutic approach which relies on the therapist’s depth of presence to their client’s unfolding somatic expressions and rhythms. The therapeutic relationship between client and therapist is of major importance in facilitating and supporting the natural impulse of the body which constantly seeks health and balance. In this deep listening to what unfolds during a session the client’s body starts a process of correction towards a more coherent body/mind imprint which is inherent in all living beings. A feeling that you have been heard in the truest sense of the word is a common experience during and after a Craniosacral session.

It is performed on a comfortable massage table, the client is fully clothed. The treatment is focused on supporting the health of the whole being, and it is extremely calming for the nervous system. Its focus is on the existing health which is inherent on our bodies hence a type of therapy that can help any type of discomfort or dis-ease. Because it is so gentle and deeply relaxing it is the ideal therapy for babies, children, pregnant women and post-surgery patients.

This process may be short, may take a few visits, or it may take several months. The symptoms you are experiencing start to ease off and eventually tend to disappear.
