Craniosacral Therapy is a subtle and powerful system of healing that can be used to both restore and maintain good health. The term 'Craniosacral' corresponds to the areas focused on - the head, spinal column and the sacrum, located at the base of the spine, including the associated membranes, connective tissue and nervous system, which all make up the craniosacral system. Based on the findings of an American doctor, William Sutherland, in the early 1900s, and further developed in the 1970s by John Upledger, an American osteopath, this therapy focuses on the relationship between subtle rhythmic movements in the membranes of the head and vertebral column, and the state of our physical, mental or emotional health. In a healthy person, normal, regular movements can be observed in the craniosacral areas, but if there is a restriction or absence of these movements, it can indicate a reduction in the body's self healing abilities or dysfunction elsewhere in the body. It has been found to be beneficial for a whole spectrum of conditions including: headaches and migraine, neck and back pain, jaw and bite problems, brain or spinal injury, stress, tension and trauma, joint mobility, immune disorders, chronic tiredness, learning disabilities and many more. In fact, it can be used to treat practically any condition, mental, physical or emotional, and even in a healthy person can help to increase energy levels, boost the immune system and assist in managing day to day stress more effectively. A Craniosacral Therapy session involves the client usually lying down, or sometimes sitting, fully clothed on a therapy bed. The therapist will then use a light touch to make contact with the head and body, and will effectively use their hands to 'sense' where there are any restrictions in movement, which may be creating problems elsewhere in the system. A deep feeling of relaxation is often experienced throughout the session. As this treatment is very gentle and non invasive, it is regarded as one of the safest therapies and can be experienced by anyone, from babies to the elderly or very frail. Craniosacral Therapists will normally undergo training for at least two years, have an understanding of psychotherapeutic techniques, and work within a professional code of practice.
