Craniosacral Therapy at Exeter's Heart
Alison welcomes clients for deeply relaxing treatments of Craniosacral Therapy in Exeter at a tranquil location, in the heart of the city. Craniosacral Therapy is a profoundly relaxing and powerful, yet gentle technique that can allow the body better access to the natural miracle of the human body's own healing mechanisms. Newcomers to the therapy often find that it takes them to a more relaxed, calm place than they thought was possible, that they are able to have a break from their mind and other symptoms; and feel deeply supported, emotionally and physically.
"Healing is a matter of time but it is also sometimes a matter of opportunity" Hippocrates
Craniosacral Therapy was developed by Osteopath William Sutherland to work with the whole person and the body's own self-regulatory and self-healing systems. Trauma (physical and emotional) and modern life (with all it's stresses); often triggers fight or flight responses; or defensive strategies that can be hard to let go of and can leave us in a partially activated state even when an event is over. The profound relaxation of Craniosacral Therapy allows areas of the body to come out of these activated states (partially using the parasympathetic nervous system, at it's designated task). As the systems in the body are able to flow more freely, the body’s own healing processes are able to work more effectively with gentle support from the practitioner.
In this way all sorts of different traumas, however long held, can have an opportunity to heal themselves whether felt in body, mind or spirit and we can become more present to ourselves.
