Biodynamic Craniosacral Therapy

Craniosacral therapy is a subtle and profound healing form which assists the body’s natural capacity for self­ repair. In a typical craniosacral session, you will lie fully­ clothed on a treatment couch. The therapist will make contact by placing their hands lightly on your body and tune in to what is happening by ‘listening’ with their hands. Although the contact is light, the effects can be profound and long lasting. Practitioners are trained to place their hands gently on specific areas of the body, listening to the rhythmic flow of the living system – the central nervous system, bones, fluids and tissues.

Craniosacral therapy is so gentle that it is suitable for babies, children, and the elderly, as well as anyone in fragile or acutely painful conditions. Treatment can aid many conditions, raising vitality and improving the body’s capacity for self­ repair.

 
 

Polarity Therapy

Polarity therapy is a natural health care system based upon the universal principles of energy: attraction, repulsion, and neutrality. The interrelation of these principles forms the basis for every aspect of life, including our experience of health, wellness and disease. As part of the larger field of energy medicine, Polarity Therapy complements the other therapies used.

Babies & Small Children

These gentle therapies are very suitable for working with children. Biodynamic Craniosacral Therapy is especially suitable for babies and small children who have experienced birth trauma. The compressive and stressful forces of the birth process may create dysfunction in the fragile system of the newly born that can be simply resolved by this very gentle, non­invasive therapy.

 
 

Qualified APS Practitioner

APS or Accelerated Pattern Shift is a healing modality that utilises Kinesiological Muscle Testing to access information in the body/mind that is creating upset or conflict in a particular part of someone’s life.

Based on the adage ‘What you believe is what you get’, a session hones in on a specific issue, and identifies the unconscious negative belief's that form the pattern or way of thinking, which are producing the upset. The belief/s are then changed so that the desired outcome can be achieved.
