  • Emotional release (SomatoEmotional Release™)

is a full-body hands-on treatment which frees up soft tissue, and realigns the structural component of the body. The therapy involves gentle tractioning and unwinding to assist the body to re-align to its optimal position. It is based on osteopathy. It is a very safe modality and this makes it ideal for all age-groups - from newborn babies to aged clients. Bodies in general have had enough stress and pain already, so respond well to a treatment that is not invasive with physical force. Many dysfunctions respond to CranioSacral Therapy.
A light-touch, whole-body treatment technique developed by John E. Upledger, DO, OMM; works with the body's craniosacral system to support and nourish the central nervous system - improving overall health and well-being. A complementary method of hands-on bodywork; works with the natural and unique rhythms of the different body systems to pinpoint and address problem sources. Helps to alleviate the aches, pains and strains of life; improves coping mechanisms to allow for better management of stress Improves the body's ability to self-care; can produce profound, positive changes.

SOMATO-EMOTIONAL RELEASE™ In addition to the structural realigning and soft tissue release, there is an adjunct to CranioSacral Therapy called SomatoEmotional Release ™, which clients may choose to have in their treatment. This addresses the body/mind - the totality of who we are. It is holistic healing of the body, and is a technique which addresses the emotional health of the client, in conjunction with the hands-on treatment. Because underlying most physical symptoms there is emotional pain, this is a key area to address. Many clients find stress levels are much reduced following a treatment, or a series of treatments.

CRANIOSACRAL THERAPY for NEWBORNS and CHILDREN CranioSacral therapy is of enormous benefit for newborn babies. Many newborn ailments such as colic, problems related to feeding, trauma from a difficult birth, stress, not sleeping etc. respond well to a treatment. Birth is not a gentle process, and some very subtle re-aligning after birth, and de-stressing, is beneficial for the baby - and the mother! Babies are normally much calmer after a session, and many uncomfortable symptoms clear. Mothers also benefit from a session during pregnancy, and also after a birth. Infants and children of all ages respond well to CranioSacral Therapy.

GENERAL You don't have to be unwell or injured to get benefit from a CranioSacral session! A realigning of the body and a loosening up of the tissue is always beneficial, and leaves the recipient feeling much better, less stressed, and frequently sleeping better. Having a session on a regular basis is a good preventative measure and keeps your body operating at a more optimum level.
