What is Crano-Sacral Therapy?
Crano-Sacral Therapy is a gentle hands-on therapy. It focuses on the primary system of the brain and spinal cord. These are surrounded and supported by fascial membranes and contain cerebro-spinal fluid (CSF) which keeps them safeguarded and nourished. It is likened to a tadpole and its tail.
Trauma and injury to the body cause restrictions in the system decreasing the wellbeing of an area or the whole body. The therapist facilitates the release of these restrictions, thereby enhancing the normal healthy functioning of the body. In a sense the therapist provides support for the body while the body heals itself.
What We Offer
This hands-on therapy as a healing art, aims to be as unobtrusive as possible when used to evaluate and treat. The patient remains fully clothed for CST. Sessions usually take an hour or, as in many cases it can be integrated with other treatment techniques.
The therapy can help in a myriad of ways. The fascial system runs throughout the whole body in layers, wrapping around each organ, each cell down to the DNA, like a layer of cling film or lamina. It is all connected as one piece like a tree with lots of branches. Essentially, the body is compensating since birth for various physical and emotional experiences and these may be stored anywhere in the body.
As the therapy focuses on the fascia, it can reach all parts and treat the whole body, releasing restrictions that have led to and held the compensatory patterns of dysfunction.CST, by accessing this fascia, is able to address the root cause of a dysfunction and not just the symptoms, in a sense working from the inside out.
