Charges for appointments are £75 (an hour and a half) for the first treatment and £60 per hour for follow-on treatments

Biodynamic Craniosacral Therapy (CST) promotes physical, psychological and emotional well-being. Throughout our lives, factors such as accidents, injuries, stresses and emotional problems can affect the expression of the fluid rhythms within the body.  As a result of these factors and over time, areas can become stuck or blocked.  CST recognises the blocked-up energy, with the practitioner enabling it to be released allowing healing to naturally occur.

 

The practitioner, using light touch, can palpate the subtle rhythmic movements, a natural self-healing force called potency.  This motion is centred around the cerebrospinal fluid that bathes our spinal cord and brain. CST enables the body to self-regulate and come into balance. It is a powerful yet gentle form of treatment.

  • WHAT HAPPENS DURING A SESSION?
    At your first session, a full case history is taken in order to get to know you. Treatments generally take place whilst lying on a couch and you are fully clothed. The session often starts with gentle touch at the feet and then move around the body using different hand holds. It may be necessary for the practitioner to stay in one place for several minutes to allow the system to settle and let go of whatever it is holding. You will be told what is happening throughout and will be encouraged to ‘listen’ to your own body in order to fully understand its needs.
  • WHAT DOES IT FEEL LIKE?
    Usually, the client has a deep sense of relaxation and may get the sensation they are floating. They may feel different types of releasing such as heat, tingling, fuzzing, stretching sensation, rippling water sensations, cold or occasionally an emotional release.

Emotional or physical blockages can be deeply manifested in the physiology of the body so this therapy is particularly suitable for releasing trauma.

"CST has really been the key to getting so much better much more quickly. For the first time in years, I feel sort of attached to my body, and that my body is alive."
