Cranio Sacral Therapy is a very gentle and profound form of bodywork. In CST the practitioner uses caring, respectful touch to listen carefully to the body, enabling it to release tension and pain, both physical and emotional.
During a cranio-sacral treatment you remain fully clothed, and you lie down or sit in a comfortable position, supported with pillows and warm under a blanket, if needed. Hinny will make gentle contact with your body, on top of clothing and blankets, always checking in with you about each new hand position to make sure that you feel as relaxed as possible. During the session you can talk as much or as little as you wish, and the treatment can still be effective even if you fall asleep.
Because it is so gentle, CST is suitable for people of all ages, from newborns to the very eldery, and everyone in between.
Treatments last for an hour, though they may be shorter for young children and infants. During that time you will have a chat about how you’re doing, Hinny will take a case-history, and then the hands-on treatment will begin.
Cranial treatment can help provide relief from many conditions, including colic, chronic muscle tension, headaches, anxiety, depression, asthma, vaginismus, torticollis, reflux, back pain, shoulder pain, neck pain, hip pain, tight jaw, teeth grinding, chronic pain after dentistry, long term effects of surgery, stress and overwhelm, dissociation, pelvic floor issues, joint pain, glue ear, chronic congestion, digestive problems, disrupted sleep, chronic fatigue, and many, many more.
Following a cranio-sacral treatment, people often report feeling more relaxed, calmer, happier, lighter, more comfortable, and more like themselves, and with a noticeable reduction in symptoms.
Treatments cost £50, or £40 if you’re unwaged or struggling. Hinny would always rather see you in clinic than not, so if money is a problem them get in touch. Payment can be by cash or card at the start of the session, or by BACS. You’ll receive details when you book.
On Mondays and Thursdays, between 10am and 12 noon, Hinny works out of a clinic just off the Cowley Road in East Oxford. At other times she may also be available for home visits.
How many treatments you need will be unique to you, and, though Hinny may sometimes make recommendations, it will always be your choice how many you book and how regularly.
