Craniosacral Therapy to support Trauma release

Our natural response to physical knocks or emotional stress is for our body to contract. So, when a life experience overwhelms us the body often begins to restrict movement in a form of holding or contraction that we may not even notice.  It does this so that we can maintain some kind of balance, allowing us to continue to function on a day to day basis. As the body stores and holds trauma our functioning becomes more and more restricted and over time this can give rise to a variety of health related problems.

Craniosacral Therapy can help the body to begin resolving these types of imbalance by supporting the body to heal itself, eventually freeing up the energy that was being used to hold the contracted or traumatised area. When the forces holding or binding up the problem area begin to resolve and the restricted area begins to release, we begin our movement towards health.

Craniosacral therapy can be extremely helpful in supporting the integration process after Holotropic Breathwork sessions.
