As we celebrate International Women’s Day this year on March 8th this year, we look at the different therapies we offer and how they can support and help Women’s health.
Craniosacral Therapy (CTS) is an non-invasive therapy which aims to realign and rebalance the body. It has numerous benefits and can be used to support a wide range of health conditions. Some examples are: Allergies, back pain, chronic fatigue, depression, digestive issues, headaches & migraines, insomnia, anxiety, amongst others.
Specifically the gentle touch of Craniosacral Therapy can help prevent and heal birth trauma. This relaxing bodywork is growing in popularity among midwives, doulas and childbirth professionals as a modality complementary to holistic maternity care. Mothers are seeking out craniosacral therapists as well, to assist themselves and their babies in achieving optimal health in the childbearing year.
The craniosacral system develops shortly after conception, when the first cell divides in the womb and forms the primal midline that becomes our spine. From that moment onward, the health of all our systems is organised around the midline—the spine. Our bones, joints and muscles should be balanced to be healthy, but like a tree that has grown twisted due to the wind, our spines and connective tissues can be affected by tension, trauma and injury throughout life—beginning with the prenatal and birth experiences.
CTS is a gentle way to relieve restrictions in the body to increase the capacity of the individual’s nervous system for health, harmony and well-being. The body naturally seeks homeostasis, and CTS facilitates this balancing.
When an individual experiences restriction or trauma, whether through a challenging birth or an injury or emotional shock to the nervous system, the body alters its priority from actualisation to survival mode. The sooner that trauma, shock and restriction are released from the body, the easier and faster the healing process.
