Craniosacral Therapy is a gentle therapy where the practitioner's hands 'float' on the body. This is usually done on a treatment table, fully clothed.
You don't have to keep quiet during the treatment as feedback enhances the process. The therapist will negotiate levels of touch and help you to focus your attention on your body's subtle communication.
Although the touch is very light, there may be releases of past trauma or shock, realisations of the effects of ones actions and a reconnection to your intrinsic healthy peaceful nature.
A treatment is a gentle 'nudge' in the direction of greater health. The body usually takes up to 3 days to integrate the changes that have happened, during which time it is good to be gentle with oneself.
The treatment has a natural course dictated by the body's health and once completed clients are brought gently back into relationship with their environment.
The number of treatments you will need is dependant on the nature of your healing process. The therapist will discuss this with you, leaving the decision up to you. As your body responds there is less need for regular treatment, although clients often see the work as good for maintenance of their intrinsic health.
