Craniosacral therapy was developed by Dr John Upledger, an osteopathic physician. It is a form of bodywork, a gentle subtle hands on therapy. CST helps to release tensions deep in the body to relieve pain and dysfunction improving whole body function. It supports your body's innate ability to balance, restore and heal itself. The craniosacral system consists of the cranium, spine and sacrum which are connected by a continuous membrane of connective tissue deep inside the body called the dura matar. The dura matar also encloses the brain and central nervous system. Treatment takes place on a massage table fully clothed. Patients may feel a deep sense of relaxation during a session, some heat or tingling. Everybody is different so the effects afterwards may also differ. You may feel a sense of calmness, energised or mild discomfort which is temporary as the body is adjusting to the changes, this is also part of the healing process.
Iridology is the study of the iris, the coloured part if the eye. Patterns, colours and other characteristics of the iris gives us information about a persons health. These observations are matched to the iris chart which divides the iris into zones that correspond to specific parts of the body. It also gives us information about our constitutional type which can help identify our potential strengths and weaknesses which in turn can help in preventing disease.
