What is Craniosacral therapy?
CranioSacral Therapy is a gentle, hands on technique of working with the Dura Mater, which is the thick connective tissue that lines the inside of the skull and spinal column.

SomatoEmotional Release can help the individual identify where and how suppressed emotions can be inhibiting their structures and functioning. For more information or to book an SER session, please refer to the SomatoEmotional Release page on this site.
