What is it?

Is a very gentle non invasive subtle and profound form of healing. Developed from the work of an American osteopath Dr William Sutherland in the early 1900s. He discovered intrinsic movements of the bones of the head and his further research revealed different rhythms in the body.


It senses distortions, congestion and imbalances within the body, going as far back as birth. Symptoms can be released and gradually elimination of underlying causes. CST has developed from clinical experiences, which show that health is something active and not just an absence of disease.

Treatment is usually given while lying on a comfortable couch, fully clothed. The therapist after first asking permission will make contact by placing their hands very lightly on the client’s body. The first thing you will probably notice is a sense of deep relaxation, which will generally last throughout the session. This release of tension often extends into everyday life. Sometimes the benefits are not immediately noticeable but become obvious on returning to a familiar environment. The work can often be deeply moving and exhilarating.


CST is so gentle that it is suitable and safe for everyone. It can benefit babies greatly for the many symptoms related to the birth processes. Many people find that CST helps them cope with:


Conditions such as anxiety, stress and many emotional issues.
