Rachit: – it was a part of my alternative healing therapy combined with other conventional treatments. I was recommended to treat my central nervous system, immune system, pain, stress lumbar mobility and muscle fatigue. For me the treatment worked as I was not expecting a significant difference yet was receptive to it. I had a couple of sessions which resulted in improved pain intensity, balanced blood pressure, lowered back pain and relaxed my muscle fatigue.

Craniosacral therapy is a gentle yet powerful therapy that supports the body’s innate ability to heal and recover from illness, injury and disease. It evolved from the medical science of osteopathy in the late 1940s. The fundamental principles of craniosacral therapy were developed, practiced and taught by eminent American osteopaths such as Dr William Garner Sutherland, Dr Rollin E Becker and Dr James Jealous.

No external force is used by the craniosacral practitioner. The life force within the patient’s body is harnessed to initiate and carry out healing processes within the body. There are no adverse effects as the patient’s body intelligence dictates the process, not the practitioner. In its present-day form, where the healing process is generated by the body’s innate intelligence and not by external force or physical manipulation, it is known as biodynamic craniosacral therapy.

Craniosacral therapy works to alleviate a wide range of conditions, including many seemingly intractable conditions like autoimmune diseases, degenerative diseases, chronic diseases and diseases caused by cellular mutation. It helps support recovery from sensory disorders, systemic disorders including metabolic disorders like diabetes, endocrine disturbances, neurological conditions, musculoskeletal issues like slip discs and joint issues and birth trauma, developmental and pediatric issues. It supports healthy functioning of the central nervous system including the brain and the nerves. It brings clarity of thought, relief from anxiety, fatigue and pain and deep rest and relaxation.

The patient lies down on the treatment table in a comfortable and supported manner. The practitioner uses a still light touch to listen to the patient’s system and to support the healing process initiated by the body intelligence. This is generally perceived by the patient as a gentle, restful and resourcing experience.
