Why Craniosacral Therapy?

Health is never lost. The Craniosacral Therapist will orient towards the innate healing ability of your own system. It is a gentle hands-on healing modality that releases tensions in the central nervous system. It is non-invasive and safe for everyone from babies to the elderly. The therapy takes a whole-person approach to healing, and the inter-connections of mind, body and spirit are deeply acknowledged. It’s a therapy that requires no talking. Instead the therapist “listens” to the quality of the craniosacral rhythm. It’s a therapy that requires no talking. Instead the therapist “listens” to the quality of the craniosacral rhythm

The Real Benefits
Any physical or emotional stress or trauma we experience may be held within the body. Unless this is released the tension may restrict the body’s functioning and give rise to problems over time. These problems could be physical (such as digestive issues, neck pain, migraines, headaches, hormonal imbalances) or emotional (anxiety, sleeping disorders, overwhelm, depression).

Craniosacral Therapists are trained to sense where stress and tension may be stored in the body and gently provide an opportunity for the body to release the patterning and return to an easier way of functioning. Some of the benefits of Craniosacral Therapy may include an overall sense of energy, vitality and connection to self.

It is also beneficial after accidents and operations, falls or trauma as well as acutely painful conditions. By working with the central nervous system, it is highly beneficial for anxiety, sleeplessness, ADHD, overwhelm, depression, auto-immune disorders, fatigue and shock. By orienting to the body’s innate intelligence and ability to self heal, Craniosacral Therapy may aid people with any condition and is welcome at any time.

The Philosophy Behind The Practice

Craniosacral Therapy has its roots in osteopathy and supports the body’s natural healing process to find its way back to its natural state of balance. The Craniosacral system is made up of the bones of the cranium and spine, the brain and the spinal cord, their surrounding fluids and membranes, and the nerves that emanate therefrom. 

The philosophy behind this practice is that there are subtle and tiny rhythmic movements of the cranial bones, sacrum and other tissues and fluids, membranes, cerebrospinal fluid and the overall nervous system. These seemingly unfelt, rhythmic and involuntary movements are essential for health. The aim of the therapist is to promote their natural motion by accessing deep stillness

What to expect in a session:
Craniosacral Therapy is a form of light-touch body work that enhances your body’s natural healing processes.

The work is deeply moving. Sessions are generally 60 minutes. In a typical Craniosacral session, you will usually lie (or sometimes sit) fully-clothed on a treatment bed. The therapist will make contact by placing their hands lightly on your body.

The first thing you will probably notice is a sense of deep relaxation, which will generally last throughout the session. This release of tension often extends into everyday life. 

To fully benefit from Craniosacral therapy, you may need more than one or two sessions. You and your practitioner will decide on how many sessions will be best for you. Some people respond well after 5 – 7 sessions, others find that Craniosacral Therapy becomes an on-going valuable resource that supports both their health and well-being.

Meet Pamela Kinsella
I am a qualified 
Craniosacral Therapist (BCST), trained Biodynamically through

South Africa. My intention is to provide a safe space, where healing can take place for the highest good of the person.

 I do that by meeting each person with loving kindness and compassion, a non-judgemental presence and developing a therapeutic relationship in which my clients feel safe, seen, heard and held.  Sessions are held in Stillness where the Breath of Life and the inherent treatment plan can unfold. I feel deeply honored to walk along the healing journey with you, to work with the intelligence of your system.

My own healing journey has included this and other modalities. I have found great healing from my own traumas, big and small, with the help of this modality and great therapists. My mission now is to offer my experience and wisdom gained to help others find healing.

What Clients Are Saying

Cranio helped me during my studies, I suffered from anxiety and had a problem with clenching my jaw. After a few sessions my mood, my emotions and body had such a change, it’s really hard to put it into words.”

“I love having Cranio sessions with Pam as I feel a lot less anxiety and stress about school and I’m able to sleep better with no bad dreams”

“A session with Pam, receiving Cranio really calms my whole system, I feel like I have had a whole nights sleep for just 45 minutes. I feel at peace and my mind is still. It is a real treat for both my daughter and I”

Cranio is definitely what worked for my anxiety. I am a natural health nutritionist as didn’t want to take medication for it. Cranio not only made me feel better, it now helps me keep balanced. It’s a leveler and I feel so good for weeks after. I can highly recommend it for anyone.”
