Craniosacral

What is Craniosacral Therapy?

Craniosacral Therapy is a gentle healing technique for infants, children, and adults. This light touch healing addresses the body holistically – integrating the physical, emotional and spiritual.


There are 12 cranial nerves within our body, affecting our sensory organs (eyes, ears, mouth etc) with the 10th, our Vagus Nerve, linking our brain to our internal organs (heart, lungs, stomach etc). These organs work together to tell us about our experiences and how to respond. In trauma situations (emotions, inescapable and/ or inability to communicate in the moment), the experience become stored in the body, to be processed when we feel safe again, or forgotten until we are triggered often much later in life. This trauma or chronic trauma (stress) presents as chronic or acute conditions. Somatoemotional release is an intuitive practice, whereby I guide you into your body to help you physically and or verbally release holding patterns, often showing up as limiting beliefs and chronic health concerns.


What does a Craniosacral + Somato-Emotional Release Session look like?

During our sessions, I compliment with other modalities; including; breathwork (pranayama), meditative practices, sound healing, and essential oils if you wish. I focus on the Craniosacral therapy flow, fascial patterns, holdings, misalignments, the nervous system, the organs + meridians. We work together through this symbiotic practice, as I hold space for your body to release and re-align, with intuitive insights often surfacing.


Often we will go back to birth and early years experiences, as this is where our core beliefs and constructs of the world originate. Impingements in nerves and misalignments at birth are common, and can leave lasting impacts on our physical and then emotional bodies. Through this work we can release patterns that show up mentally, emotionally, and physically that may no longer be serving our potential. Supporting new (or new again) parents and young ones is so beneficial, as we set the stage for life to thrive!


After our session, we will have a brief discussion and I share the intuitive insights that came to the surface. Often these have to do with patterns in your life that have manifested in the body. I also provide you with yoga, breathwork, myo-fascial and other tools, so you can continue to support your daily well-being.


If this is for a child, I offer the child the option to watch me do a mini-session for their parent, as this can help them understand what to expect. I always make sure to let them know they can use their voice and let me know if anything doesn't feel right to them - same for adults. This has never come up as we work in-sync, but it's core to my work to ensure everyone feels safe and that they can speak up.

Client Reviews

“I felt so much energy moving & tingling in my body during the session and Katie was bang on in finding a few areas where I could feel there were some major blocks. After the session I felt so much lighter as she worked to release them. I’d definitely recommend seeing Katie!”

~ Suzanne, Foot Guru Reflexology

“I have had chronic headaches and migraines for years and after my first session with Katie and in the weeks after, I had fewer headaches and was able to sleep better than I had in a long time (no restless legs). Katie was also able to give me some suggestions to help me relax, which have been great. She is wonderful and understanding and I definitely recommend giving it a try!”

~ Cecilia
