CranioSacral Therapy is safe and suitable for many conditions - from bad backs to helping resolve trauma

Because of its gentle approach CranioSacral Therapy is safe and suitable for people of all ages and also for those in fragile or painful conditions.

People come for CranioSacral Therapy for many different reasons. Sometimes they have particular physical problems such as headaches, joint problems or bad backs or they may have a long standing illness or emotional difficulties, others simply find that it supports them in their lives by helping to reduce stress and bringing greater energy, clarity and well-being.

The way it uses the bodies’ natural healing intelligence can be very helpful for Immune related illness  and conditions with unknown or poorly understood causes including  Chronic Fatigue/ ME and Fibromyalgia.

CranioSacral Therapy always aims to treat the whole person rather than any specific condition but, in the experience of therapists, may aid people with a wide variety of conditions by raising vitality and enabling the body’s own self-healing process.

It can also work well as a complement to psychotherapy and counselling where support is needed in processing trauma or emotional issues.
