What is Craniosacral Therapy?

Craniosacral therapy is a gentle body therapy using a light touch. It is a powerful yet subtle treatment that is suitable for people all ages, from infants to adults to the elderly.

A craniosacral treatment is a deeply relaxing experience, which provides you with a much needed ‘reboot’ from a modern stressful lifestyle.

Craniosacral therapy balances your central nervous system by lightly optimising the flow of fluid that surrounds your brain and spinal cord. This flow is affected by stress that causes tension in your nervous system, which then causes pain and discomfort in your body. Craniosacral therapy is able to release this by addressing the root cause.

Tensions can either be physical or emotional. Your body has the ability to store emotions and life events, which unknown to us, are often the cause of many conditions and symptoms like pain. This could be unresolved emotional trauma or an accident you never fully recovered from. Craniosacral therapy uses a technique called Somato-Emotional Release to untie those inner knots that often lead to everyday pain and discomfort.

Craniosacral therapy strengthens your immune system and helps you build a natural resistance to disease. It supports both your physical and mental wellbeing.

Craniosacral therapy is ideal for pregnant women that face physical and emotional challenges during pregnancy. It has even helped war veterans recover from post traumatic stress as well as NFL football players suffering from concussion.

Craniosacral therapy has been successfully used to treat a wide range of medical conditions. To name a few common ones:

  • Migraines & Headaches
  • Chronic Neck & Back Pain
  • Scoliosis
  • Stress & Tension-Related Problems
  • Chronic Fatigue

Viktoria Bliss was trained in CranioSacral Therapy by the best practitioners in Europe and the USA in the methods of the founder, Dr. John Upledger.

She has a master’s degree in pedagogy combined with psychology and leverages this background to give effective treatments for physical, mental and emotional wellbeing. In addition to typical health issues such as migraines and chronic pain, she specialises in challenging psychosomatic conditions that are often the root cause of many health problems.

Viktoria has been practising successfully since 2010 when she joined Bliss Clinic in Finland. Prior to that she has worked with children in primary schools.

In 2007 Viktoria left Austria and began a multi-year round the world trip to do aid work in developing countries and to study sustainable agriculture. During this time she fell in love with New Zealand and is why she lives in Auckland today.

Viktoria is passionate about healthy local food and practises mindfulness meditation.

What to expect from your first treatment?

Your first session is a consultation where we confidentially talk about your medical history and current conditions. It is vital to fully understand your unique situation. Afterwards you will receive a treatment for the remainder of the session, which is performed fully clothed. It’s recommended to dress comfortably.

As everyone is unique and responds differently to the therapy, the number of treatments necessary to recover and maintain health is different from person to person. Working together, we will find out what is most suitable for you and your situation.

Initial consultations are 90 mins and treatments thereafter are 60 mins. Please enquire for prices.
