For Dancers

Craniosacral therapy can be a rich resource for your dance movement practice by supporting you into a deeper relationship with your embodied awareness and felt-sense of your body, fostering a subtle dialogue between your conscious processes and decision making mind, and the felt, nuanced and changing nature of your body in present time, you could call it the inner dance of your body.


Craniosacral therapy can support you into a deeper relationship with your core potential as a felt experience that you can become more familiar with and draw on as a resource, and may impact widely into your perception of yourself and what your limits are. This may have far reaching implications for both studio based practice and performance related activity.


During injury rehabiliation Craniosacral therapy can provide relief from symptoms whilst addressing the wider causes that underlie the injury, and may be complimentary to other treatment avenues such as physiotherapy and remedial work that you may be following. It can support you in preparation for surgery and post operative rehabilitation by optimizing the body's available resources, as well as opening up possibilities for adjusting the 'how' of doing movement through movement happening with awareness.


Craniosacral therapy is harmonious with well known bodywork modalities such as Yoga, Chi Gung and Tai Chi, Feldenkris, Contact Improvisation and Body Mind Centering, and may be a complimentary additon to your practice .
