The CST Journey...

CranioSacral Therapy is more than just a hands-on treatment session. It is an opportunity to explore what is really going on for you beneath the hustle and bustle of everyday life. A session will give you a safe haven to reconnect with who you really are, and a chance to relax into and explore the wisdom within your own body-mind-spirit. 

Is it time to unlock old patterns? Is it time to release aches and pains and understand what is holding you back? We work from the premise that the core of your physical structure holds the knowledge of how your body can do this and bring you better flexibility, strength, balance and health. 

If you're looking to improve your health, your connection with yourself, and you are willing to release some patterns that contribute to the way you hold stress, then come and try CranioSacral Therapy.  

It can take us on a bit of a journey.... 

P.S. The picture above is me treating in the ocean in the Bahamas - not in Brighton! I probably didn't need to tell you that but in case you were wondering...

Treatments for Every Body.

CST is suitable for all ages and many different wellbeing challenges.

Children

CST is often thought of as the one for kids, especially babies. This is because it can really help the body realign after the process of 'getting here', and its gentle and light-touch approach is well received by little ones and new mums alike. 

Many parents report that newborns and young children are more settled and relaxed after sessions. CST is not prescriptive in its approach. We work by listening to what the body tissues need to do, whatever symptoms are being experienced. 

Adults

Want a healthy body, calm mind, and inspired life? It is now pretty well known that the keys to this include great nutrition, enough exercise, supportive rather than harmful habits, and as little stress as we can manage - or at least the building of resiliance to help when the stressful times appear. 

Where does CST fit in? It can help us to release stress and tensions that we have held in the body (often for many years) that may be physical, emotional or psychological, It assists us to tap into our own internal self-healing potential. 

When we are able to do this, we may also become more empowered to tackle some of the other parts of our lives that may not be serving us as well as we would like. CST puts you in charge and supports rather than directs your own healing process.  


Conditions

There are many 'Tales from the Table' that share anecdotal evidence and treatment case studies for all sorts of conditions that CST has helped with. There are many books by Dr Upledger and others that contain inspiring stories. Many people come to us after recommendations from friends who found the work helped them. We can also share our published evidence base. (see both Upledger Institute UK's site and Upledger Institute International)

Studies have been done that show the benefit of CST for migraine, lateral epicondylitis, concussion, autism, fibromyalgia and other conditions. 

Ultimitely, we don't treat conditions, we treat people. 

We aim to consider the whole body and see what it is telling us about where to work. In practice, this means that if you come with a shoulder problem it may have originated from an old knee injury or tightness in a hip.... so we may work there before addressing the actual shoulder. 

We take the view that since all the different pieces of us are connected,, and each person's life experince is unique, what any one of us may need will be different from anyone else. So we do our utmost to listen to your body tissues for guidance.

Don't take my word for it - let your body show you what it needs.
