What happens in a craniosacral therapy session

During a session you remain fully clothed for the entire session whilst lying on a treatment table. The craniosacral therapist makes a light contact with their hands often at the head, spine or pelvis, in order to tune in and listen to how the forces that organise patterns of health and tension are expressed in the body.


As this process takes place over the session you may become aware of various sensations arising such as the expression of heat, pulsations, tingling, feeling more balanced, deep settling and profound relaxation. Each individual’s experience of craniosacral therapy is unique and you may experience other sensations. Sometimes we may not feel very much at all at first, but as we come back into deeper relationship with ourselves we begin to re-experience our living dynamism again.


As session work evolves over a series of treatments, deeper layers of health and a profound re-connection to our most fundamental resources can be accessed and experienced.


Blankets, bolsters and cushions can be used to help you to be comfortable and at ease. If lying is not possible for you sessions can be conducted with you sitting in a chair.
