Craniosacral therapy is a gentle, non-invasive, hands-on treatment that promotes a deep level of rebalancing. The craniosacral therapist identifies where restrictions or blocks are causing pain, discomfort or stress; using a simple and relaxing technique, tension is released and the body is encouraged to move to a higher level of balance. 

As we’re all aware, there is an interconnection between our emotions and our physical health – psychological stresses are often reflected in the body. Craniosacral therapy offers a way to listen to, understand, and relax the stresses that we carry. It is also an effective way to address the results of accidents, particularly those involving trauma, whiplash or shock.

Any conditions involving the nervous system – including headaches, migraine, labyrinthitis, neck pain and shoulder pain – also respond well to craniosacral therapy. By working directly with the source of the imbalance, rather than simply with the symptoms, recovery takes place from the inside out.

Inside all of us, there is a still, relaxed point. However, it is often difficult to access. Craniosacral therapy reconnects us to this place of peace and quiet within, and enables us to remember how we can feel. If you’re also interested in mindfulness, meditation or similar practices, you’ll find craniosacral therapy a great fit.

Our craniosacral therapist, Philip Humphreys, has been in practice for fifteen years. After looking for a way to deal with the pain that he suffered in the aftermath of several accidents, he came across craniosacral therapy, which proved to be life-changing. He trained in India and Devon, and now also teaches craniosacral therapy and mindfulness meditation.

Philip is a registered member of the Craniosacral Society and the NHS Directory of Complementary and Alternative Practitioners.

Craniosacral therapy treatment is so gentle that it is suitable for everyone, including babies and young children or those with acute or chronic pain.
