Biodynamic Craniosacral Therapy is a gentle, hands-on way of working with the body, which originated as Cranial Osteopathy. The therapy supports the body’s inbuilt abilities to reduce stress (emotional and physical) and to self-heal. It is a globally recognised practice, with such a light touch that it is suitable for all ages – including the elderly, newborn babies and pregnant women, and the elderly. Anyone may have a session during pregnancy, and parents may bring their babies for problems after difficult or perhaps traumatic births. Sessions help release fear and tension from the tissues and help the baby settle and the parent to relax.
Contrary to the title ‘craniosacral therapy’ sessions don’t only include work on the sacrum and head, sessions are likely to include other hand positions e.g. back, neck, abdomen, and on limbs.
Effects may be felt body-wide, as well as mentally, emotionally, and potentially spiritually as everything comes more into balance and harmony, helping return us to wellness. Craniosacral therapy can help the body to use its own healing and restorative mechanisms, to reduce tensions in a supported and comfortable way, hopefully also reducing stress and increasing your energy.
Just like when we see a counselor, we would hope to feel really ‘heard’, and this therapy is similar in that the practitioner really ‘listens’ to your body, with their light touch and encourages your body to listen to itself and to change itself from an underlying state of dis-ease to wellness.
During or after a session you may feel calm and energised, with increased clarity of mind and a feeling of well-being.

Lake loves Cranialsacral therapy – a very gentle intuitive form of treatment, which is suitable for all ages- from newborn babies to the very elderly.
Working with small fluctuations of movement within the body, from the gentle expansion and contraction of all the tissues, the practitioner can pick up subtle imbalances in the musculoskeletal system and provide treatment.
