CranioSacral Therapy

CranioSacral Therapy is a subtle yet powerful tool that can help many different chronic and acute symptoms.

 

During a typical session, clients remained clothed and lie comfortably on the massage table. Your practitioner will apply extremely light pressure to the feet, along the spine, and at the skull, plus any additional places in need of attention and balancing. Your job as a client is to relax, find quiet stillness, and release.

While CranioSacral Therapy originated to address a wide variety of traumas and dysfunctions of the brain, cranium, and nervous system, it has evolved into a gentle and powerful hands-on approach for working at the intersection of body, mind, and spirit. Do not mistake “subtle” for “superficial.” CranioSacral Therapy and its effects can be profound, even life-altering.

Symptoms and conditions that can be relieved from CranioSacral Therapy include (but are definitely not limited to):

  • body tension
  • headaches
  • insomnia
  • stress/anxiety
  • fibromyalgia
  • chronic fatigue
  • eye and ear impairments
  • vertigo
  • sinus issues
  • TMJ pain
  • neck pain
  • sphenobasilar joint issues
  • emotional imbalances
  • right/left brain balance issues
  • personality changes
  • depression
  • …and SO much more!

 

During the session, many clients report feeling extremely relaxed, and not quite asleep but not fully awake. Some experience visual imagery, some auditory information, and yet others mention physical sensations. Everyone’s sessions are unique, and the body releases what it’s ready to let go of. Many times, the most relief can come when we let our minds turn “off” and get out of the way so our bodies can heal with their natural wisdom.

CranioSacral Therapy utilizes light touch to access the pulse of the cerebrospinal fluid, allowing the practitioner to feel imbalances, discrepancies, and irregularities. With awareness and continued light touch, the practitioner is able to assist the craniosacral pulse to re-balance, helping restore the client’s optimal health.

Sessions may include:

Essential Oils

Essential oils can aid the release of tension, and provide a variety of health benefits. Clients are given a few choices and asked to follow their intuition when selecting the oil to be used. Only therapeutic grade oils are used.

Singing Bowls

The soundtrack to your session is a blend of Tibetan singing bowls, gongs, and didgeridoo. The ancient sounds of these vessels are grounding, opening, mystical, and can activate & balance chakra centers in the body.

Palo Santo and/or Sweetgrass

Palo Santo and Sweetgrass can both be used for their cleansing and clearing benefits.
