Welcome to CranioSacral Therapy with Jill Aldis
Upledger Craniosacral Therapy (UCST) has its origins in Osteopathy. It is a gentle, non invasive healthcare approach that acts through the central nervous system to assist the body’s natural ability to heal itself. It causes no discomfort nor does it have any risks or adverse side effects. It is for this reason that it is particularly suitable for the treatment of babies, children, and the elderly.
It is used to detect and correct imbalances in the Craniosacral system, assisting your body’s natural ability to heal itself.
This system is comprised of the membranes and cerebrospinal fluid that surround and protect the brain and spinal cord, extending from the skull down to the sacrum (tail bone).
The Craniosacral system directly impacts on the central nervous system therefore any imbalances can cause sensory, motor or neurological problems.
How Craniosacral Therapy is Performed
Treatment is a very gentle and non invasive manipulative technique. Seldom will pressure in excess of 5grms (the weight of a 20p piece) be used.
The examination is performed by testing movement of the Craniosacral rhythm in various parts of the body, such as the skull, pelvis, sacrum and abdomen, to assess where restrictions may occur.
You will probably notice a sense of deep relaxation which will generally last throughout the session. In many cases treatment may resolve emotional issues.
During a treatment you may recall memories surrounding past shock, trauma or injury, this is known as Somato Emotional Release it explores the links between the trauma held in the tissue and the emotion attached to that event, which can play a major role in inhibiting good physical health.

Most births happily have no complications, however in some cases problems can occur and babies have to be helped into the world quickly, by forceps delivery, ventouse extraction
or caesarean section, necessary procedures to save their lives.
