Craniosacral Therapy For Menopause

Craniosacral therapy is a gentle treatment with it’s roots in osteopathy.
A gentle but powerful therapy that promotes change to the Central Nervous System, helping to improve function and well being throughout the whole body.
 
Symptoms of menopause can often leave us feeling depleted in energy, tired, anxious, overwhelmed, low in mood, and disconnected from our bodies. Craniosacral therapy regulates the nervous system and shifts the body into ‘rest and digest’ mode rather than ‘fight or flight’. This allows the body to heal, relax and restore, leaving feelings of more energy, better mood, positive thoughts, calmness and feeling better in our own skin.
 
Craniosacral is undertaken by lying down on a treatment couch, fully clothed and under a cosy blanket. It is comfortable, relaxing and nurturing. 
 
To get the most out of craniosacral therapy I would always suggest a course of 6 treatments over as many weeks.
