What is Craniosacral Therapy

Craniosacral therapy, ( CST), stems from Cranial Osteopathy and works on the craniosacral system – the fluids and membranes that surround the brain and spinal cord as well as the entire nervous system. It is a hands on whole person approach to wellness that can successfully treat muscular pain, shock, fatigue, stress, anxiety and depression as well as colic and reflux in babies. Craniosacral therapy is ideal for all stages of life including pregnancy. Treatments can be used as a health maintenance programme or to benefit acute conditions. ( For a list please click here).

Dr William Garner Sutherland (B.1873) one of the early Osteopaths who discovered the Craniosacral rhythms within the body wrote,

“ within the cerebrospinal fluid there is an invisible element that I refer to as the Breath of Life….. is it really necessary to know what makes the fluid move? Visualize a potency, an intelligent potency, that is more intelligent than your own human mentality.”

Whether online or in person, clients speak of a rekindling of their innate spark; of renewed purpose, vitality and joy.
