Coronavirus Update: I am continuing to offer face to face treatment sessions to support physical and mental wellbeing. Although no longer statutory, I am continuing to use a number of safety measures to minimise risk, which include wearing a mask, wiping surfaces, providing hand gel and leaving a gap between sessions. I am happy to discuss any concerns or needs.

Craniosacral therapy is a very gentle and subtle therapy that works with
the body’s own natural healing process. Through a light contact, the
therapist “listens” or tunes in to the person’s system, feeling where there are
restrictions or imbalances and following the pattern of restriction (such as an area
of tension or trauma) until it releases and resolves itself.
Craniosacral therapy works with the whole body, helping to restore its natural
balance and integrating any changes made. As a result, it works on many levels,
benefitting not just the physical but also the mental, emotional and even spiritual
health of a person. People often hold tension or stress within their bodies without
being fully aware of it (for example, hunching up their shoulders), and a sensitive
therapist will treat not only the physical problem but also any underlying patterns
that may be contributing to it.
As craniosacral therapy is so gentle, it is suitable for all age groups from babies to the elderly, including pregnant / new mothers and people with fragile conditions.
