The first treatment usually starts by your therapist taking a brief medical history to get a general picture of your health and to establish where any unresolved problems may have originated. You will then be asked to lie on a therapy table, unless this proves difficult for you, where you will be treated sitting in a chair.
There is no need to undress, but it is advisable to wear light, loose-fitting clothing so that you are comfortable. You will probably be asked to remove your shoes, and a belt if you are wearing one.
Your therapist will probably start at your feet, and gradually work up your body with their hands gently monitoring your craniosacral motion to locate areas of tension, and check for freedom in the cranial bones. They will then proceed to work with whatever area of tension is most prevalent. Most treatments will last forty-five to fifty minutes.
