Craniosacral Therapy assists the body's natural ability to heal using gentle manual techniques, offering relief from pain and stress. This is a therapy that is suitable for a wide range of pain symptoms.
Craniosacral Therapy is a respectful treatment which improves overall wellbeing.
We all have things happen to us in life that can cause dysfunction in our bodies. A trip up a step, a sporting injury or a car accident. Our bodies compensate for this but may develop tension patterns which cause symptoms from stiffness to pain. This is also the case with emotional stresses, causing headache, neck stiffness and a whole range of other symptoms from tiredness to anxiety. Craniosacral Therapy helps bring the body back into balance so you can get on and live your life fully.
We need to listen to our bodies as they know what changes are necessary to keep them healthy. Our bodies speak to us most of the time, but we aren't very good at listening to them. Eventually we pay the price.
Sometimes our assumptions about ourselves and our lives cause strain on the body. Craniosacral Therapy and Somato Emotional Release help identify these assumptions using incisive questions to free them. Touch with quality attention creates an environment for communication between the mind and body to facilitate healing.
When Emma is undertaking a Patient Treatment, she will take a full case history, listening with care, to allow the creation of a plan of treatment specifically for the patient.
During treatment, the patient will lie fully clothed on a treatment couch, or if this is not comfy on their side or sitting.
Emma places her hands gently on the patient's body to locate areas of reduced tissue motion and uses manual techniques to release these areas. Patients may notice a change immediately or gradually. Most people find the treatment relaxing. Afterwards patients may feel energised, tired, or no different to normal. It's a very individual thing.
Sometimes during a treatment memories surrounding a past injury or shock may be recalled. This is Somato Emotional Release. It helps patients to reconnect with what they are feeling in their body and return to optimal health. Emma will work with the patient using visualisation and dialogue to explore what is coming up in a respectful way. When we are stressed we become tense and trapped in our thoughts and anxieties which causes pain and discomfort. Working in this client-centred way is very effective to facilitate personal growth and promote wellbeing.
