general enquiriesIs CST for everyone?
Clients of all ages work with CST – from tiny babies to retired and elderly people.

Are there any contraindications?
Because CST works with the body’s own energy, there are few circumstances when it is contradicated. However it cannot be stressed enough that in the case of serious illness you must advise your GP and check with him or her if CST is compatible with the treatment you are already having.

Obviously if you are feeling unwell (eg. a fever or infectious disease) or have had recent surgery, then a treatment should be postponed until you recover. I would also recommend that you do not have CST with another complementary treatment on the same day. The effects would be counterproductive!


How should I prepare?
Avoid eating for at least an hour before the treatment. Heavy meals are best avoided both before or after, as is alcohol.

What do I need to wear?
You remain fully clothed through the treatment. For maximum comfort you should opt for loose comfortable clothing. Ensure that it is warm as your metabolic rate will slow down as you relax, which can lead to feeling cold.

How long will it take?
The first treatment will take around an hour and a half to allow for a discussion of your case. Allow an hour for subsequent sessions. You will be asked to fill in a consultation form prior to the first appointment which will used as a basis to discuss what you would like from your craniosacral session(s). This will ask for details about your medical history (including information where available of your birth story, dental surgery and accidents) as well as current conditions. All impacts to the body-mind physical, mental and emotional can leave an impression on our systems.
