Craniosacral therapy is a powerful yet gentle healing modality that works with the central nervous system and connective tissue that covers the muscles and organs of the body. Using a light touch—generally no more than the weight of a nickel—the practitioner monitors the rhythm of the craniosacral system to detect restrictions and imbalances. Manual techniques are used to release problem areas and relieve stress on the central nervous system. The body’s immune system is strengthened and the treatment is deeply relaxing and restorative. It alleviates a range of illnesses, pain and dysfunction that include: migraines, headaches, TMJD, chronic neck and back pain, chronic fatigue, learning disabilities, traumatic brain and spinal cord injuries, post-traumatic stress disorder, orthopedic problems and motor-coordination impairments.
A treatment session is performed with a person fully clothed and resting on a massage table. The results of a session are a body and mind that are able to return to a greater level of function with ease and fluidity. Craniosacral therapy works beautifully in conjunction with other healing modalities.
Sometimes after a physical condition is remedied by Craniosacral therapy or another healing modality, a person continues to be disturbed by the injury. Even though physical tissue is healing or has healed, an emotional component may still be held within the body at the site of original injury or pain. Research conducted in the late 1970’s supports the theory that emotions are stored in the body, and, sometimes, if left untreated, can cause dysfunction again. In SomatoEmotional Release, the therapist guides a person through what is often a challenging acknowledgement of long pent-up emotions or memories. The problem does not have to be analyzed for release to occur. Relief felt during the release of the emotional component has been described by clients as similar to the end of carrying a heavy burden that was hindering their ability to enjoy life fully.
SomatoEmotional Release is usually performed in conjunction with Craniosacral techniques and with the client fully clothed and resting on a massage table. Care is taken to create a safe, confidential and supportive environment for each session.
