Craniosacral Therapy Singapore

CranioSacral Therapy (often abbreviated to "CST") very subtly manages and treats important mechanics and physiology in our body.

What it does is that it corrects direct damage and trauma that our body had received from events such as

  • birth trauma
  • trauma from car accidents
  • trauma from sports injury
  • and other traumatic incidences

CranioSacral Therapy is a very gentle touch of the CranioSacral rhythm. The CranioSacral rhythm is created by a hydraulic fluid system called the CerebroSpinal Fluid (CSF) that is produced inside our brains and is shared/spread throughout your

  • head (brain and skull)
  • face and
  • spinal cord

- with experience, training and palpation, you can feel this rhythm pulse all over the body. For any normal healthy individuals, the Craniosacral rhythm is “healthy, constant and strong", but for individuals who are under stress and trauma, this very pulse becomes “unhealthy” and go into arrhythmic poor circulation that results in

  • physical,
  • emotional and
  • organic disturbances

CranioSacral Therapy is a very gentle therapeutic treatment that works by applying gentle pressure to the

  1. the bones of your skull
  2. your spinal cord and
  3. other areas of the body

to provide you relief from pain to misalignment and arrthyms.

emotional healing

Emotionally/emotional level,  CranioSacral Therapy may produce a feeling of relief and “lightening.”

To illustrate, if a person had experienced or undergone certain circumstances and/or situations that had/is still causing emotions such anxieties, uncertainties, anger, frustrations, deep burdens, fear etc – these emotions are not something that can "just" disappear by itself. 

Oftentimes and unfortunately, they tend to stick and linger and "stored " inside us, and at times may lead to manifest physiologically, causing discomfort, pain, diseases and a general sense of being unwell or malaise/unhealthy. When our senior CST combine modalities of CranioSacral corrections as well as your somatosensory history, we guide you through a release we work called SomatoEmotional Release.

SomatoEmotional Release

SomatoEmotional Release is an advanced level and form of CranioSacral Therapy, and often patients remark that they "receive" insights and understandings how their emotions and belief systems can be stored in your spinal cord, muscles and tissues…deep inside.

What our senior craniosacral therapists do is to help guide you to find those stored emotions and untreated belief systems and gently guide you to release those negative emotional disturbances through a gentle and relaxing way, leaving behind non-residual damages and strain, enhancing your health and wellbeing.

How are Cranio-Sacral Therapy and SomatoEmotional Release applied?

Craniosacral therapy sessions are done one-to-one with patients/clients fully clothed and usually lying face up on a medical bed. The craniosacral therapy practitioner will apply specific gentle pressure (less than a niquel force) through your

  • skull
  • face/facial bones
  • body
  • spinal cord

- speficically to provoke, stimulate and promote the discovery of healing pain points and crises where you may experience somatoemotional release.

Craniosacral therapy sessions are therapeutic facilitated healing process, and during this treatment process you may experience physical and emotional signs such as heat, vibration, pulsation, tingling etc. As you read this, you may observe that our focus is to provide relief from pains and emotional doubts by guiding you through a series of combined, different sessions.
