BIODYNAMIC CRANIOSACRAL THERAPY WITH EVI

Évi has been working with different massage therapies since 2003 and enjoys the subtle connection that can happen between two people through the physical touch. she believes that our body is a vehicle that allows us to recognise who we are and as such deserves good care. 

 

This very subtle technique is based on the latest scientific researches that show the importance of the fascias and the different body rhythms in our general health condition. The gentle touches allow the body systems to get back to their harmonious rhythms and our inner healing potential to flush away the energetically blockages which might create tension in the muscles or dysfunction in the different organs.

The aim of the treatment is not to interfere with this natural and organic healing process but facilitate it to happen.

The treatment brings the body into a very deep state of complete relaxation and surrender where this healing naturally takes place simply by the inherent wisdom of the human body.

 

Craniosacral therapy is good for releasing:

- muscle pain and tension

- stress and anxiety

- sleeping disorder

- headaches 

- exhaustion, chronic fatigue

- and by making sure the proper flow of body fluids strengthens the immune system and promotes general well-being

 

The treatment happens on a massage table. Come in comfortable clothes.

The session lasts 1 hour
