What tells us we are alive is a fundamental life force, a fluid potency that underlies our very existence. This life force maintains our optimum health and generates subtle rhythmic motion which is expressed by every cell. All living organisms express this motion.
The cerebrospinal fluid which bathes the central nervous system, exhibits this motion as a tide-like inhalation and exhalation, while bone, organs and other structures of the body follow their own particular patterns of movement within this.
In a healthy body this fundamental life force is expressed fluently but if health is compromised, on any level, this balanced rhythm will be disturbed and inevitably affect the overall vitality of your system.
Through deep presence and relational touch the craniosacral therapist is trained to attune to these subtle rhythms and identify stress, trauma, illness and shock states. The therapist works with these patterns and fluid motions supporting your body’s natural propensity to find health and equilibrium.
Words tend to limit the ubiquitous nature of craniosacral therapy, the most comprehensive understanding of the work is to experience it. Many long term clients have regular sessions because they understand and appreciate the invaluable health benefits for mind and body of letting go, dropping into para-sympathetic, resting in stillness and deeply relaxing.
A non-invasive, holistic approach to health, craniosacral therapy is suitable to all ages from the newborn to the elderly.
