35A Fore Street
Hello and welcome. I offer Psychotherapy and Craniosacral Therapy.
Craniosacral Therapy is a hands-on therapy which assists the body’s natural capacity for self-repair. You will usually lie on a treatment table fully clothed while the therapist’s hands make a light contact. This gentle approach does not use manipulation. The therapist listens, via the hands, to what is going on in your body, and identifies and helps to relieve pain or tension held there. You may feel a deep sense of relaxation and become aware of heat, tingling, pulsations or other sensations. Craniosacral therapy is client-led.
Your body will set the pace of work, so you will remain comfortable, in control and able to integrate the changes that occur. Since it is your body (rather than your mind) that sets the priorities, you may find that the reason you came for treatment is not what changes first. Some people find that it can take a few sessions to get used to what they are feeling. For these reasons, you may need to consider having a series of treatments to gain the full benefit of Craniosacral Therapy and its cumulative effects.
Craniosacral Therapy is suitable for people of all ages, from babies to the elderly.
