CRANIOSACRAL THERAPY AND RECOVERY FROM SURGERY AND ANAESTHETIC
In the News!
In my Craniosacral Therapy practice, I often meet clients preparing and recovering from surgery. For 12 years, I also practiced as a Craniosacral Therapist in a hospital in Brighton where I worked alongside medically trained colleagues supporting patients post-surgery. While most people recover well, some experience a range of sensations and feelings that can be disorienting and distressing if left unresolved. Here are some common experiences I’ve encountered and a description of how I support recovery from surgery and anaesthetic with Craniosacral Therapy.
It's Christmas! Will you enjoy it or merely survive it?
We are happy to share that Viva Lewes, a guide to what’s what in Lewes, has chosen to dedicate a 2 page spread to The Open Door and the Clinic Manager, Will Wheen!
So Look After Your Feet!
ALEXANDER TECHNIQUE MIGHT JUST MAKE THE DIFFERENCE
Christmas is supposed to be a happy time, but many find it stressful. You’re expected to buy presents and special foods, to attend and host social gatherings while still doing your job, and to spend time with relatives you may not like very much. Ironically enough, those who do not experience these demands may feel neglected, useless, and lonely.
We probably can’t change the things that cause us stress, but we CAN alter our response to these stressors. You may have heard this before and that’s because it’s true! Your family members will know exactly how to ‘push your buttons’ to provoke a reaction. Do you have to follow the same old routine in response, or could you pause – for just a moment – and consider taking an alternative path?
Craniosacral Therapy Awareness Week
20% OFF REFLEXOLOGY AND FOOT MASSAGE THROUGHOUT NOVEMBER
Our feet get a lot of wear and tear and seldom get much TLC for all their hard work. So this offer applies to any new client to The Open Door who books in November for either a Reflexology treatment or a Foot Massage treatment. When booking, let the receptionist know if you suffer with a specific foot problem such as plantar fasciitis (pain under the sole of the foot when weight-bearing), or pain elsewhere in the feet, numbness or tingling in the feet, or any other concerns about your feet that a GP, podiatrist or chiropodist has not been able to help you with. Sometimes complementary therapies can help where other treatments haven’t proved successful. Many of our practitioners offer a free 15 minute consultation to assess whether they may be able to help with your specific problem. So what have you got to lose! Walk your feet down Church Twitten and call in for a chat. Those may be the best steps you’ll take for a long time.
20% DISCOUNTS ON ALL CRANIOSACRAL THERAPY TREATMENTS 15 - 26 Oct
Craniosacral Therapy is a hands-on therapy with gentle, sustained contact through the client’s clothing. Cranial work offers a way of being held that encourages feelings of safety and comfort so that physical tension, emotions and psychological states can be clarified and processed.

Maybe you haven’t ever sat on a seafront bench under a greying sky, looking blankly into the distance and having the sort of thoughts that the person in this picture may be having. But most of us, at some point in our lives, will find that we can identify quite closely with whatever might be going on for him even if we do it while sitting at the kitchen table or at our desk at work.
We've been distributing flyers around Lewes this week to let people know about our 20% discount offer on all massages for new clients to the clinic. The offer runs until the end of August so why not give yourself or a friend a treat and book in with one of our practitioners. The clinic is in such a quiet location you can listen to the birds singing outside while having your treatment. What could be more therapeutic!
