Craniosacral therapy is a gentle yet profound form of therapy based on osteopathic principles. By working on deep energetical levels, it allows the nervous system to self-correct and settle which allows for a profound relaxation of the whole body-mind complex. Over time tensions melt, old traumas and restrictions dissolve and a sense of new peace and vitality can be perceived in the body.
During the session therapist uses light touch on body which is usually relaxing for the recipient. It can often help with resolution of pain and building one’s vitality. It is particularly useful for:
- Nervous tension and stress
- Headaches and migraines
- Exhaustion/lethargy and insomnia
- Back/neck pain
- Post traumatic shock/Emotional stress
- Physical or emotional trauma
Craniosacral therapy developed from the work of an American osteopath, Dr William Sutherland in the early 1900s. He discovered intrinsic movements of the bones in the head and also different subtle rhythms in the body. He demonstrated that these movements are linked with mental and emotional health and that restriction of these movements corresponds to a reduction of the natural capacity to self-heal.Because of its gentle nature, the craniosacral sessions are suitable for people of all ages, from new borns to elderly.
“The treatment was fantastic – I felt very cared for and understood by Pawel, and immediately experienced benefits, that accumulated over time. The craniosacral sessions felt more powerful than others I’ve had and Pawel’s vast experience of different therapies, and his ability to tune in to what you need, meant he was able to bring me the benefits of several treatment modalities tailored to my needs. Amazing.”

” I have been taking my newborn son to see Pawel because he started suffering from colic when he was 5 weeks old. We tried everything, over-the-counter remedies, cycling his legs, making changes in my diet and so forth, but the only thing that has made a visible and substantial difference are Pawel’s cranio-sacral sessions. My son is so much better now, crying a little during the day compared to the long hours of crying before, and being uncomfortable for less days during the week. During our sessions Pawel has also helped me see in my son sides of his character that I had not noticed before, and getting to know and understand him better. We are still not out of the tunnel, but it is really comforting to know that I can count on Pawel to help us and make a difference in my son’s life”
