Dogs and cats can react to stress which can show up by change in behaviour. They may stop eating, pee or poo inappropriately in the house, be hyper active or with cats hide away under furniture and be antisocial. A change in routine, owner, losing a companion, illness or injury can have a negative effect. The body reacts by secreting too much stress hormone and it leaves the animal on chronic high alert that often shows up with behavioural changes and over reaction to situations. CST can help to relieve the stress levels by tuning into the central nervous system returning the body to balance and calm.
CST for Dogs & Cats
CranioSacral Therapy is a safe, gentle and effective therapy that works by facilitating the body’s own natural healing powers to remove or lessen the effects of stress on the whole body. It works by tuning into the physiological system known as the craniosacral system with a very light touch to the tissues. The information received from the tissues allows connection to the animal’s inner wisdom that guides and self corrects. It is a tissue based therapy using immeasurable energetic components. CST can have a profound calming and rebalancing effect. Animals love it.
All my treatments for small animals are a combination of CranioSacral Therapy and Reiki.
