A gentle, yet potent way of working with your body. Supporting its innate ability to balance, restore, and heal itself. To reduce your stress and build your vitality.
The Cranio-sacral Therapy approach is a gentle, yet potent way of working with the body, that utilises light touch. It supports your body’s innate ability to balance, restore, and heal itself while helping to reduce stress and build vitality.
This approach underpins all the work our BlossomingMe therapists do, both with the cranio-sacral/massage therapist and with the cranial-osteopath.
Cranio-sacral therapy, also known as craniosacral therapy or CST, as well as cranial osteopathy, or OCF (osteopathy in the cranial field) both recognise the body has an inherent wisdom and self-healing capacity. This enables our therapists to connect safely and deeply with your body. Sensing, feeling, and listening to your body’s natural rhythms and subtle movements. Then responding as needed, to support your body’s ability to find its own optimal state of balance and wellbeing.
Whilst this style of treatment is called Cranio-Sacral therapy, and often does involve working with the bones and membranes of the skull, spine, and sacrum. Balancing them, to improve the flow of cerebrospinal fluid, that surrounds and protects the brain and spinal cord. However, this does not mean we are limited to treating just the spine, from head to sacrum. This holistic, non-invasive approach can be applied throughout the body, enabling us to gently treat your whole body.
These gentle holding techniques, subtle movements and manipulations, in CranioSacral therapies, can support your body to address restrictions and imbalances throughout. This can promote balance, and relaxation, and facilitate your body’s natural healing processes. Enhancing the health and function of your whole body and improving your overall wellbeing and vitality.
Benefits of CranioSacral Therapies:
The gentle, non-invasive nature of Craniosacral Therapy, allows us to work with your body, with minimal force and gentle pressure. Indeed, you may find this style of treatment very relaxing. This can make it an excellent option for people who:
- Are young and strong
- Are more fragile, like newborns, babies, pregnant women or the elderly
- Are in severe pain
- Dislike forceful manipulation, stretching, or massage.
- Have not yet found the results they are looking for, with stronger, more forceful therapy styles,
One of the key benefits of Cranio-sacral therapies is their ability to settle the nervous system and reduce stress. Using the gentle touch and holding positions, therapists can help calm and regulate your nervous system. Activating your parasympathetic nervous system, often referred to as the rest-and-digest part of the nervous system, which can help relieve tension from your body and promote relaxation. This decreased level of stress in your body can foster a state of deep relaxation, enabling its healing and restoration, and clearing of your pain and discomfort.
Craniosacral therapies enable our BlossomingMe therapists, to balance your body in a holistic manner. Addressing strains in your body, both close to the region of your pain, as well as those further away. These strains can cause your body to hold tension, and it is often this held tension, that can cause a great deal of pain for you. When your body is in balance again, it no longer needs to hold the tension. And as the tension is released from your body, it can also clear your pain.
Finally, by releasing restrictions and imbalances in your body, settling your nervous system, and supporting the optimal flow of cerebrospinal fluid throughout your body, craniosacral therapy can help boost your body’s resilience and natural healing processes, as well as your overall vitality.
