Integrative CranioSacral Balancing
Craniosacral therapy is a gentle, non-invasive, hands-on healing modality that focuses on the wave-like rhythmic pulse that goes through the entire body. This therapy stems from osteopathy, which is an approach that emphasizes the role of the musculoskeletal system in health and disease.
In a typical 1-1.5 hour session, the client lies quietly, fully clothed, while the practitioner makes light contact at selected points around the body. This light contact consists of gentle finger pressure, with no bone manipulation or forceful thrusts such as those used in chiropractic work, bone-setting, or osteopathy.
The goal of craniosacral therapy is to help release restrictions in the system to restore balance and improve the functioning of the central nervous system.
Using the craniosacral system, emotional trauma can be accessed directly through the body. With Integrative Craniosacral Balancing, we are using the body as our gateway to access and address underlying root-cause issues, which are typically erroneously assumed to be occurring in the mind. Many clients will say they have gone to a variety of talk therapies for years and still suffer. As science has shown, "the issues are in the tissues." Until we address the underlying stored and stuck energy, an individual can never heal and truly thrive. Talking about the trauma or feelings, is not enough.
In a craniosacral session, as we unwind the tissues of the body, the rhythm of the cerebrospinal fluid will stop along the way to indicate a significant area where trauma is being held. A somato-emotional release takes place, such that on a cellular level, we are breaking old and unhealthy patterns within the mind-body-spirit system and creating new patterns that support health and wellness.
Clients almost always report feeling relaxed while in a session. Clients may experience memories, or begin to release emotions, or drift off to a peaceful sleep. We may dialogue to explore what is ready to be released and how we may let it go. Most clients experience a profound sense of peace after a session.
