What is Craniosacral Therapy?
CranioSacral therapy is a gentle, hands-on therapy that corrects imbalances in the body centred on the skull, vertebral column, sacrum and cerebrospinal fluid.
How does Craniosacral Therapy Work?
The CranioSacral System refers to the fluid (cerebrospinal fluid) and compartments found in and around the brain, the spinal cord, as well as to the bones that either directly or indirectly interacts with this system. This system moves the cerebrospinal fluid within and around the central nervous system producing a vital body rhythm, equally important to health and well-being as the beating of the heart or the breath. CranioSacral therapy uses light touch to evaluate the ease and motion of the fluid. Using this information, treatment involves very gently mobilising and releasing the body using specialised techniques where ever there are restrictions found.
Because CranioSacral Therapy works directly on the nervous system & musculoskeletal system the benefits of this therapy are numerous. CranioSacral Therapy helps to boost general well-being, reduce stress, improve quality of sleep, increase energy and enhance the functioning of all the body’s organs via the nervous system.

What to Expect at a Consult?
CranioSacral therapy is performed on a massage table with the client fully clothed. The practitioner will touch the client lightly on different places on or around the head, neck, back, hips, legs or arms. The client may or may not feel anything as the practitioner evaluates and corrects the cranial rhythm and restrictions. Often clients are deeply relaxed. This form of therapy is safe for all ages. Sessions typically last for 60 minutes and may be incorporated with other types of body work (massage, acupressure, osteopathy) and/or energy work, depending on your needs.
I was in the midst of a personal crisis, or what I believed was a personal crisis, I turned to Daniel for help, and was introduced to MiCBT... MiCBT taught me how to deal with negative thoughts, in a positive way, without medication. MiCBT is now in practice every day of my life, I owe a lot to its teacher, and its design.
Our business would not be the same, the magic you wield and the results you have made with us are truly incredible. You have an amazing ability to get to the core of a situation and gently but firmly guide us to resolve and heal this.
I am no longer on painkillers and I haven't had to go to the hospital. The pain is something in my past. The pain relief wasn't immediate but I had waited 15 years so for me it was immediate. I noticed a decrease in pain straight away and it continued to lessen as time went on.
Exactly what I wanted, I blissed out and relaxed, what a great way to start the weekend. I loved the dim lighting, soothing music, warm towels and warm massage table... brilliant practitioner and friendly, professional atmosphere.
I have been hive free for over three months and I am able to reintroduce the foods that were causing problems as well as continuing on important supplements and vitamins that promote a good immune system and nutrients. I have not felt this good in a very long time. I am completely back to the confident and happy person that I have always been.
After my treatment I felt like my whole body was moving and supporting itself to move more naturally.
As my naturopath, confidant, and mentor, Daniel has guided me to explore all of life's possibilities and strive for freedom. For his unconditional support and encouragement, I will remain eternally thankful.
I feel the best I have felt in years. I have more energy and my mood and concentration have improved considerably. Not to mention getting my cycle back which I hadn't had for a couple of years.
