The Listening Space

Craniosacral Therapy

Craniosacral Therapy is a gentle way of working with the body using light touch. People sometimes ask about the name Craniosacral Therapy and think it only refers to the head. In fact, Craniosacral Therapy works with the whole person, and changes may occur in the body, mind and emotions during and after sessions.

When a Craniosacral therapist places their hands lightly on you, they are using them to listen and focus on the rhythm and movements of your body. Your body responds to this sensitive touch by relaxing and re-aligning itself. A feeling that you have been heard in the truest sense of the word is a common experience during and after a Craniosacral session.

These are some of the words and phrases that people have used to describe their experience of Craniosacral Therapy: comforting, peacefulness, a sense of relief, deep stillness and relaxation, connection, put back in one piece, feeling whole again.
