CranioSacral Therapy and SomatoEmotional Release

Page 1 of 5

CranioSacral Therapy and SomatoEmotional Release are hands-on techniques that use the rhythmic flow of Cerebral Spinal Fluid encompassing the membranes within the cranium, brain and spinal cord for assessment and treatment.

The fluid movement is felt under light touch on any part of the body. By using the CranioSacral Rhythm as a guide, physical and emotional restrictions are identified. Once a restriction is discovered, subtle hands-on techniques are used to aid the patient in facilitating the release of the restriction.

Since these techniques are non-invasive, they are extremely effective in aiding the youngest, most delicate systems of infants, children, and adults alike.

Craniosacral therapy is a subtle and profound healing form which assists the body's natural capacity for self-repair.

In a typical craniosacral session, you will usually lie (or sometimes sit) fully-clothed on a treatment couch. The therapist will make contact by placing the hands lightly on your body and tuning in to what is happening by "listening" with their hands. Contact is made carefully so that you will feel at ease with what is happening.

The first thing you will probably notice is a sense of deep relaxation, which will generally last throughout the session. With subsequent treatments this release of tension often extends into everyday life. The work can address physical aches and pains, acute and chronic disease, emotional or psychological disturbances, or simply help to develop well-being, health and vitality.


CST Session

Craniosacral Therapy is so gentle that it is suitable for babies, children, and the elderly, as well as adults and people in fragile or acutely painful conditions. Treatment can aid almost any condition, raising vitality and improving the body's capacity for self-repair.

Sometimes the benefits are not immediately noticeable but become obvious on returning to a familiar environment. The work can involve resolution of past events and is often profoundly relaxing, deeply moving and exhilarating.
