Following on from last week's blog about what to expect in a session, here are some pictures of common holds during a craniosacral therapy session.

Contrary to popular belief, you can see that craniosacral therapists do not just work at your head! It is a whole body therapy and a practitioner will move to the areas that are shown by your body as priorities. This could either be a place of stagnation to help with energy flow, or conversely an area of health, to allow this to expand throughout the rest of the body.
Mindful touch provides potent ground for the mind, body and heart to make its own adjustments at its own pace. No two sessions are alike which is what makes this work so rewarding!
Craniosacral sessions are available with Ri in Bristol, Cirencester and Cherington.
