What is Craniosacral Therapy?

Craniosacral Therapy evolved from the work of Osteopath William Garner Sutherland (1873-1954). A student of Andrew Taylor Still, the founder of Osteopathy, Sutherland’s work is practised by many osteopaths who refer to it as Cranial Osteopathy. 

Biodynamic Craniosacral Therapy is a gentle but profound healing modality that assists and supports the body’s inherent capacity for self-repair and regeneration. It takes a patient-centred approach that appreciates the body as a whole and intelligent system of function. 

Your body is quietly seeking perfect health at every moment. If the body has had to cope with illness, injury, shock or long-term stress, then its capacity for self-healing can become compromised.

Craniosacral Therapy can help the whole person to recover a sense of vitality and flow, allowing the body to subtly do what it needs to do at it's own pace, in order to re-organise and re-balance towards its original state of health.

What can it help with?

What is unique about Craniosacral Therapy is its ability to work with the source of symptoms on every level, whether mental, physical or emotional, and can therefore address a wide variety of conditions.

It can assist with conditions such as chronic or acute physical pain (including back pain), stress and anxiety, insomnia and chronic fatigue. It can also help to resolve feelings of disconnection, 'stuckness' or overwhelm.

Craniosacral Therapy can be used on an on-going basis to support overall health and wellbeing, helping to develop a sense of vitality, grounding and resilience throughout life's challenges.

NB. Craniosacral Therapy is not intended as primary healthcare but to work alongside and in co-operation with the relationship you have with your GP.
