Keywords: Connective Tissue

Cranio-sacral Therapy is a natural, gentle yet very powerful treatment which can be beneficial for minor ailments through to persistent chronic health problems and is safe for both adults and babies /children. Using a very light touch the practitioner can diagnose and treat, encouraging the body to aid its own natural healing process. The client remains fully clothed and most people find it a very pleasant and relaxing experience. Sensations felt can include tingling or gentle pulsations or, most importantly, a profound sense of relaxation. The practitioner works with the gentle motion of fluids, which surround the brain (inside the cranium) and the spine (which ends at the sacrum). These fluids (mainly the cerebrospinal fluid) have an effect on the whole body. CST works on many different levels within the body and can therefore influence different bodily structures such as the immune system, musculo-skeletal system, organs and connective tissue and the fluids and energy systems of the body. It can help with:

  • Migraines
  • Asthma, Sinusitis, Bronchitis
  • Whiplash injuries
  • Dental problems
  • Back, neck & shoulder pain
  • Hay fever, ear infections & Tonsillitis
  • Tension, anxiety & insomnia
  • Fatigue
  • Period pain & infertility
  • Behaviour disorders
  • Compression of the skull at birth
  • Problems during and after pregnancy
  • Colic, hyperactivity & poor sleep in babies
  • Hyperactivity, autism, epilepsy
  • Dyslexia

CST is an effective therapy as it treats the cause of the problem not just the symptoms. Because it is helping the body heal from its own resources, it tends to have dramatic effects on the presenting symptoms as well as helping the body function better as a whole.
