"Always think of the universe as one living organism, with a single substance and a single soul; and observe how all things are submitted to the single perceptivity of this one whole, all are moved by its single impulse and all play their part in the causation of every event that happens. Remark the intricacy of the skein, the complexity of the web."
- Marcus Aurelius, 'Meditations'
During your first appointment, we will discuss some medical history, your overall health at the moment, a little bit about what is currently going on in your life and what you are hoping the therapy can help you with.
The session happens fully clothed on a treatment table and I will make gentle, non-invasive contact on different areas of your body with an attentive and non-judgmental presence.
The tide-like motions of the craniosacral system can be felt throughout the whole body and are our deepest expression of health. Craniosacral Therapists use their hands and senses to listen to these subtle rhythmic motions and to where there might be places of 'stuckness' or stasis.
The session unfolds in dialogue with you and your experience. Through this, the healing process is supported, guided by your body's own profound intelligence.
Many people find CST deeply relaxing and calming. People can also experience more intense or challenging sensations or emotions during a session. This is completely normal and can happen as areas that have been holding on begin to change and release. Many find that it helps them to recover a sense of vitality, energy or ease in their life.
CST allows the process of change and healing to take place by meeting your body at its own pace and this pace is unique to every individual, so treatment may require several sessions.
Once the session is completed, changes can occur over several days.
