Working with your body

In response to physical knocks and traumas or emotional stress, the body’s tissues contract.  Sometimes when shock is severe, the tissues stay contracted.  Any stresses, strains, tensions or traumas which have been stored in this way can restrict the body’s functioning and can give rise to problems, even years later.  The effects can be both physical (pain ie back/neck pain, migraine, digestive disorders etc) and emotional (anxiety and depression).  Craniosacral Therapy is a way to engage with this history using a gentle “hands on” touch.  There is no forceful manipulation of tissues, rather a tuning in to the deeper rhythmic motions.  Practitioners work mindfully with the whole of a person’s system.  Listening to the health available and working with an individual’s own self-healing ability.  We can tune in from anywhere in the body - not just the head or sacrum.
