Free Treatments!

Do you have a child or children who would benefit from a free CranioSacral Therapy treatment?

Are you available at 11am or 2.15pm Saturday 3 March?  (Sunday session now full, sorry).

At the Upledger Institute we teach a form of therapy called CranioSacral Therapy. It is a type of treatment with a very gentle touch that works on the whole body but specifically on the areas around the brain and spinal cord. It can be hugely beneficial for a myriad of challenges as well as general wellbeing. 

We are running this class to teach already practicing therapists more about working with children. We will be covering lots of the theory and application of the ideas, and will be keen to welcome any volunteers to work with at 11am and 2.15pm on Saturday 3rd . We also encourage families to come, so you may all get the chance to participate and receive treatments!

We would ask you to arrive 10-15 minutes early, and the sessions will last about 45 minutes. 

The venue is The Old Ship Hotel on Brighton seafront. Go to the contact us page on their website for directions. The post code is BN1 1NR. There is the Lanes car park opposite, entrance on the road to the left of the hotel, Black Lion Street. (There are others that are cheaper further away!) 

Sessions are all conducted on the clothed body, on massage tables lying or sitting or however is most comfortable! We would suggest wearing comfortable clothing and other family members are welcome.

You can find out more about CST below, as well as on the THERAPY page of the menu bar above. If you are willing to volunteer, please do let us know below, choosing the session time that would suit you best - let us know in the other info if another time would be OK too. We will get in contact with you to answer any more questions you may have and share a few more details, as well as to confirm times. We are looking for 8 kids / toddlers / babies for each session so please pass on if you know anyone else who you feel might benefit. Thank you!

What is CranioSacral Therapy?

CranioSacral therapy is a light touch therapy that is a gentle yet profound way of listening to the body. It assists the body to do what it needs to do to correct and heal itself as far as possible. The techniques we use are delicate, precise and effective, inititally simply monitoring the rhythm of the fluid that circulates through the central nervous system, then gently improving the function of the craniosacral system that surrounds the brain and spinal cord. Delicate hands-on techniques are then used to release any tensions that may be impacting the system. While many techniques are carried out from the cranium or sacrum - head and lower back - practitioners may work on other parts of the body too.  The result is a central nervous system that’s better able to function at its greatest levels of health and performance.

CST can be applied to all ages, and our intention is always to empower the client - be they a newborn, child or older family member. We work by listening to the body and following what it wants to do, rather than imposing anything we think may be appropriate. This is quite a different paradigm, in many ways, from what we are typically used to! 

Many parents report that newborns and young children are more settled and relaxed after sessions; indeed, CST is sometimes thought of as a treatment specifically for babies. Many times it can be helpful for new mums to get on the table too!
