What is Craniosacral Therapy?
CranioSacral therapy is a very gentle, hands-on therapy that works with the body’s own craniosacral rhythm, assisting the body to rebalance itself in a subtle way. As the craniosacral system affects the function of the entire body, working with and rebalancing the craniosacral system can have a profound effect on problems anywhere in the body, leading to significant improvements in health and behaviour in both animals and humans. When combined with Caroline’s ability as an Animal Communicator, the effects of a CranioSacral therapy session can be even more pronounced as she is able to tune in to your animal at a very deep level and to know exactly how and where to work with your animal for the best results.
The cranial rhythm (the rhythm of the cranial waves) is said to cycle between 8-14 cycles per minute and can be palpated anywhere on the body. The cranial rhythm is different from that of the heartbeat and the breathing rate.
When an injury or trauma occurs, it gets ‘stuck’ in the tissue of the animal and is stored in the cell memory of the tissue until released. A Craniosacral practitioner is taught to sense any restrictions in the Craniosacral system. By palpating the cranial wave on different areas of the animal, a practitioner can tell where there is healthy movement or lack of movement. This is similar to an acupuncturist palpating the flow of energy through meridian pathways. The practitioner or healer learns specific hands-on techniques to palpate the cranial wave anywhere on the animal’s body, thus assisting the body to correct itself. The body has an incredible self-healing mechanism. CST can also be useful in the prevention of problems in young, growing animals.
All animals can benefit, though with some the improvement may be more dramatic than with others. Because Craniosacral Therapy (CST) builds health in the brain and nervous system, it is excellent for prevention of chronic conditions. CST also addresses injuries, even ones that occurred long ago.
I have found Craniosacral Therapy helpful for the following health and behavioural problems:
- Blocked tear ducts
- Emotional problems
- Facial nerve paralysis
- Head injuries
- Head shaking
- Hip Dysplasia
- Irritable bowel syndrome
- Post stroke
- Pre and post surgery
- Post dental work
- Spinal injuries
- Trauma (including car accidents)
- TMJ Dysfunction
How do I book a CST for my animal?
Simply call Caroline on 0427 563 239 during business hours to organise an appointment. CST is $90 per animal, and usually takes around an hour.

Caroline will be able to give you an exact quote when making your appointment as travel costs vary depending on location.
Please note that if you do need to re-schedule an appointment 24 hours notice is required or a cancellation fee will be charged.
