CranioSacral Therapy arose out of the practice of Osteopathy. Osteopathy is the manual adjustment of the cranial bones, vertebrae and sacrum as well as the fascia connecting these structures.
By working with the cranial bones, the meninges, the central nervous system and the cerebrospinal fluid, osteopaths interact with the entire person - body, mind, soul - to treat dysfunction and improve health.
CranioSacral Therapy can be used to help a variety of conditions, including headaches, migraines, chronic neck and back pain, tension and stress disorders, fibromyalgia, TMJD, and many others.
So, what does a CranioSacral Therapy session look and feel like?
At the beginning of your session, I talk to you about what issues you're experiencing, past treatments and goals of the session.
CranioSacral Therapy is performed clothed. After you're comfortably settled on the treatment table, I'll stand aside for a few minutes. This allows me to become quiet and present enough to detect the subtle craniosacral wave. During the treatment, you may experience "unwinding" - a feeling of your head, arm, or other body part moving unconsciously. This is perfectly normal and should be allowed to happen freely as it's part of how the body releases old patterns. Each session will be unique. If, at any point, you feel uncomfortable, be sure to let me know so the session can be adjusted.
Once the session has ended, it's important to take your time re-integrating to the present. Try to avoid touching your head for 24 hours after a session and drink plenty of water. Take note of dreams - these can be messages from your subconscious.
