"I was having severe migraines up to twice a week. In the sessions I felt very relaxed. My headaches reduced to twice in 8 weeks and were not so severe. I'm thrilled. I have recommended Craniosacral to others My husband has been having sessions with James for neck pain."

Pamela Joyce – Riverhead

"I had regular severe migraines for the past 5 years on a monthly basis. After the first session with James they became less intense, and by the 3rd session they stopped – I have not had any migraines for what would now be over 3 months! I am really impressed & glad to have a natural relief."

"I have always had neck issues, it’s where I hold tension and stress. Before I went to see James, it was getting to an unbearable point.. ..It has been a month and a half since my last session, and I can happily say my neck is pain free! I can exercise without causing havoc to my neck area, and sleep without my shoulder or neck pain waking me up."

Frequently Asked Questions

What is Craniosacral Therapy?

Craniosacral Therapy is a soft tissue treatment that works to release trauma & contraction patterns in the body – often the cause of pain. The practitioner uses very light contact to work with the craniosacral system – the inherent tissue movements of the body

What can I expect from a treatment?

  • Discussion on the reasons for the visit and & some medical history
  • Client sitting or lying fully clothed on a treatment table
  • Practitioner working with light contact on relevant areas of the body promoting restriction & contraction patterns in the tissue to release
  • Clients often report a number of sensations, such as tingling, heat and small internal movements as the body adjusts

How many sessions will I need?

The time it takes for change depends on the individual. People differ in how quickly they are able to release trauma, and what is going on internally to cause symptoms.  Feedback will be given after each session and advice on a provisional course of treatment so you have a choice on how to continue your treatment plan.

Can I have CST treatments whilst having other therapies?

Absolutely. Craniosacral therapy will not interfere with other therapies or medication. Continue to have other treatments as you feel necessary. The only thing to be aware of is how much your body can handle, and for this reason we recommend spacing treatments out over the week.
