A therapy that was developed through Osteopathy.
Craniosacral Therapy is a gentle touch therapy developed through the work of Osteopathic physician Dr William Garner Sutherland. Craniosacral Therapy works on the principle of inherent health, that no matter the situation there is potential for the body to heal itself from both physical and emotional pain, stress and trauma. Our nervous system is in constant assessment, making intricate changes within our bodies keeping us as healthy and safe as we can be at that very moment in time.
When we are not able to deal with challenging life events resourcefully, they can become imprinted into the nervous system causing points of inertia. Our defence army come out in force to protect us. These ‘blockages’ prevent the optimal communication between the central nervous system and the brain’s ability to assess, regulate and generate appropriate responses. This gives potential for ill health and physical and emotional dysfunction. It affects the efficiency and functioning within our minds and the systems, tissues, fascia, organs, and fluids.
Craniosacral Therapy helps you to find, restore and reconnect to your SELF by assisting the down regulation of your nervous system. We may not know our self, we may have parted ways many years ago, but it’s definitely there. The firm voice of our self, commands the attention and instructs the army to stand down. In returning to the self we can quieten the noise and return to stillness. From the safety and the stillness of the present emerges the embodiments of our past experiences. With the support of the therapist it’s like having your hand held, supportively and cautiously returning to our SELF, discovering the burdens and protective mechanisms that we’ve long held consciously and unconsciously in the body.
