What is Craniosacral therapy?

Craniosacral therapy is a gentle touch therapy that taps into our embryological blueprint for health. The blueprint is initiated at conception and is with us all our life. Its home is the fluids and it is always available.

Biodynamic Craniosacral Therapy (BCST), Self Regulating Therapy and Pre and Peri-natal training   are effective therapies that help resolve early trauma, and the more easily recognized effects of injuries such as concussions, motor vehicle accidents and sports mishaps.
