Craniosacral Therapy is a gentle yet powerful form of bodywork that effects one physically, emotionally, mentally and spiritually. Physically it enhances the function of the central nervous system and the musculoskeletal system and returns balance and mobility to the entire body. Emotionally it establishes one’s ability to flow freely with full emotional expression. Mentally it promotes mental clarity and flexibility, and Spiritually it assists in uncovering, discovering and espressing the essence of who you are.

What can I expect to experience during a craniosacral session?
After a thorough consultation, you will be asked to lie on your back on a massage table. You should wear comfortable clothing that is easy to move in (preferrably not jeans). The practitioner will, through a series of light touches, access and evaluate your craniosacral system. You may experience a sense of relaxation that continues to deepen throughout the session. Gentle releases will occur, either physically or emotionally or both. Throughout the session you will experience the wonderful sense of safety, reassurance and nurturance that the extreme focus of the practitioner provides. Great attention is paid to the creation of a safe and Sacred environment for the work.
Sessions can last between 1 and 2 hours, the average session lasting 90 minutes. You can expect to experience a sense of completion at the close of each session.
