Craniosacral Therapy is a pleasant therapy to receive. During the treatment I hold various parts of your body using a light, gentle touch. I will usually hold positions on your head and spine. However I may also hold other places such as the shoulders or legs. Although the focus is mainly on the head and spine, the treatment can, surprisingly, have an effect almost anywhere in the body.
What to expect in a treatment
Your appointment lasts for 1 hour.
First of all a case history is taken. Then the treatment is carried out with you lying comfortably on a treatment table. There is no need to remove any clothing for a craniosacral therapy treatment.
I usually begin by assessing the patient by holding various positions on their body. Using a gentle touch I can feel where there are restrictions and where there are abnormal “energy” patterns present. The treatment is then carried by holding the body in places that I feel need attention. I will stay quietly holding each position and while I am doing this I can sense any responses or changes taking place within the tissues or structures under my hands.
You may experience a pleasant feeling of relaxation as the session progresses. You may also be able to feel subtle changes and readjustments within your body.
At the end of the session most people feel pleasantly at ease. The full effect of the treatment is not always immediate and you may notice changes still occurring for up to two days afterwards as your body adjusts.

“I found my body responded very well and was able to do the healing and repair that it needed. I would very much recommend a treatment with Neil”.
MD (Hennock, Devon)
“Neil is a caring person who makes you feel relaxed. Once I began to believe that his work could help and I opened my mind to this therapy I was amazed at its effects. I felt so much better after each session.”
