Heal Your Body The Natural Way
30 MINS - £25.00
60 MINS - £35.00 (INC. REFLEXOLOGY)
Auricular acupuncture is a complete acupuncture system whereby specific points on the ear are stimulated to treat or relieve symptoms of many modern diseases, disorders and emotional blockages.
The first acupuncture practitioners were highly skilled at making accurate diagnosis through detailed observation of their patients. They learned that the ear can be mapped with energy channels observing that the flow of energy (chi) along these channels could become blocked or overactive which could eventually result in disease. By stimulating these points, the free flow of energy could be restored, allowing the body to re-establish its natural balance.
Acupuncture can be used for many conditions including:
* Stress relief
* Poor sleep patterns
* Pain management
* Improving the immune system
* Reducing inflammation
* Stimulating the internal organs
* Back pain
* Supporting the body through IVF
Auricular acupuncture needles are very fine, less than the width of a hair, and most people find the treatment both relaxing and calming. All needles used are sterile and packed individually, they are for single use only and disposed of safely afterwards.

BIODYNAMIC CRANIOSACRAL THERAPY
60 MINS - £35.00
Many practitioners consider Biodynamic Craniosacral Therapy to be the leading edge in the modern practice of the Craniosacral Therapy approaches. This therapy is a gentle yet profound non-invasive, hands-on treatment for the whole body. Performed on a warmed massage bed under our optional cozy throw, the client remains fully clothed and the touch is generally light and still. The treatment is focused on supporting the health of the whole person through the central nervous system. This is the system that dictates all the body’s functions constantly sending, and receiving information.
Biodynamic Craniosacral Therapists understand how an optimally functioning healthy nervous system performs. Practitioners are trained to palpate the cerebral spinal fluid to facilitate subtle changes both on a physical and emotional level which can release trauma held at deep cellular level through encouraging the atomic nervous system to move from the sympathetic (fight or flight) to the parasympathetic (rest and digest) stage to allow the body to release physical and emotional blockages. Practitioners also are aware of the energetic map that underlies one‘s basic health and symptomology believing that health is never lost no matter what the ailment. Through their knowledge of the system they use the ability to identify the parts of the nervous system that are not functioning optimally and assist the system in bringing itself back into balance. This supports greater ease and helps the body decrease symptoms.
What are the benefits of Biodynamic Craniosacral Therapy?
Due to the gentle non-invasive nature of BCST there are few contraindications for treatment. Everyone can benefit including newborns, elders, the frail and those who are ill. The improvement after a session may be subtle or dramatic. BCST encourages health in the brain and nervous system which has been known to be effective in assisting the prevention of chronic conditions.
In Addition, BCST can be useful in addressing injuries, including those to the bones and tissues. BCST is also an effective modality for exploring and resolving issues of the past including prenatal and birth trauma. Early trauma can create an unconscious belief system that is not relevant in the adult. BCST allows the acknowledgement of out moded beliefs and shifting to real or appropriate beliefs.
How many of us have experienced a head or tailbone injury, accidents, minor or major surgeries and dental work? Life experiences can create emotional trauma, physical strains and anaesthesia residues. The biodynamic approach strengthens the whole system, creating a safe environment where the body can gain a new perspective and a healthy resolution of issues.
Is Biodynamic Craniosacral Therapy safe for children?
Children respond well to BCST because it is gentle, non-invasive and effective in ways they can intuitively recognise. Even small children quickly get used to the work as they develop trust in their practitioner. Pre-verbal children may direct the practitioner’s hands to areas of discomfort. All minors and vulnerable adults must be accompanied by an adult for insurance purposes.
Is Biodynamic Craniosacral Therapy safe during pregnancy?
BCST is not only safe but recommended during pregnancy as it calms the nervous system of both mother and child. It strengthens emotional bonding which has the potential of being short-circuited due to pre-natal and birth stresses and trauma. The Biodynamic approach can contact the Primal Midline of the infant’s delicate nervous system — the midline that holds our Originality, the state of perfection that enables us to be less affected by negative influences from our genetics. Although the growing unborn baby is highly conscious, s/he does not know the difference between mother’s thoughts and feelings and its own, so when a mother's system is soothed and balanced during pregnancy, the baby benefits as well. BCST has also been found to help with fertility issues.
Are there manipulations involved?
Biodynamic Craniosacral Therapy is distinguished by its minimal reliance on manipulations of any kind. If the various Craniosacral methods could be characterised and compared based on this criterion, the Biodynamic style would be placed at the non-manipulative or yin end of the spectrum. In the Biodynamic approach the healing process comes from within the client, not from the outside by the practitioner, and the hand contacts are based on listening and following/reflecting the client’s process rather than pushing or manipulating the client towards an ideal state.
How can I benefit from Biodynamic Craniosacral Therapy?
The therapy may surprise you with benefits you hadn’t known were possible, including resolution of symptoms that you had no idea were related to the cranial system or to each other. You may feel lighter, with a sense of more spaciousness within yourself. You may notice more ease in relationships or ability to focus. You may stand straighter or breathe more easily and deeply. Pains may decrease and emotional boundaries may be easier to maintain. It is likely that you will feel deeply relaxed and centred. As each person is unique, it is impossible to say exactly what benefit you will feel, or how long it will take you to feel it but from my experience as a practitioner clients have reported seeing colours, felt like they were floating, daydreaming and reported a feeling of release and being in a deeply calm and relaxed state.
Biodynamic Craniosacral Therapy can be a stand alone therapy and also works well with other complementary health therapies such as reflexology, massage and acupunture.
