Craniosacraal Therapie FAQ

Frequently Asked Questions

How often should I have a session?

For most people, a treatment plan would look something like this:​

 - 6 sessions once a week (or twice week if the problem is acute)

 - 4 sessions every other week

 - 3 sessions once a month (or longer as maintenance).

How long is therapy session?

Individual sessions are 60 minutes long (45 minutes for children). The duration of treatment depends on your needs, financial situation, and goals. This is something that we can address during our first session.

What should I wear to a session?

You'll remain fully clothed during the treatment, so wear comfortable clothing to your appointment.

What will I experience after a session?

Just as each individual experiences CST sessions differently, the results can be diverse as well. You may leave in such a relaxed state that you feel like sleeping for hours. Or you may leave full of boundless energy. You may feel a decrease in pain or an increase in function immediately after the session, or the effects may develop gradually over the next few days.

Are there any conditions that shouldn’t be addressed with craniosacral therapy?

There are a few situations in which CST is not recommended. They include any condition in which slight variations in intracranial pressure would cause instability, such as acute aneurysm, recent skull fracture, and cerebral hemorrhage or other severe bleeding disorder. If you have any questions about whether these situations apply to you, seek the advice of your physician before receiving a CST session.

Are your sessions covered by insurance?

Although Craniosacral Therapy is a recognized profession by most current healthinsurance providers and there are many therapists in the Netherlands who are connected to a professional healthcare association, I have made the conscious choice not to be part of an association myself. It would demand of me a great amount of time and money for accreditation and administrative reporting which would take prescious time away from my clients and my personal life. In addition, this would mean that I would have to pass on part of these costs to my clients, which does not feel like a win/win for anybody.
