In a Craniosacral Therapy session you will lie, fully clothed, on a treatment table while the therapist makes light contact with their hands and listens to what is going on in your body.

You may become aware of heat, tingling, pulsations or other sensations and you are likely to feel a deep sense of relaxation.

The resulting changes can help in reducing stress, and increasing well-being.


The Craniosacral Therapy Association of the UK (CSTA) provides a professional foundation for the practice of craniosacral therapy.

Members of the Craniosacral Therapy Association (registered as RCST) only practise craniosacral therapy after graduating from an accredited training school or college and are bound by the Association’s Code of Ethics.

Much of the Craniosacral Therapy Association’s work is focused on maintaining high standards of education and competency.

Colleges report to the Council annually and are subject to three-yearly inspection to ensure that they continue to provide high quality training.

Members have at least one year in supervision and undertake continuing professional development to enhance their practice.

As craniosacral therapy is becoming more well-known, an important focus for the Association is to increase understanding of craniosacral therapy among the public, media, government and health professionals.

The Craniosacral Therapy Association provides members with extensive support, including practitioner referral and information about post-graduate courses.
