Many clients do not know what Craniosacral Therapy is. Traditionally, it does focus more on the head and neck, this is what most people are aware of. However, what makes Craniosacral Therapy a very different experience than you are used to is that it mainly makes use of pressure that is no heavier than a nickel. This is quite unique. And actually, a typical session can include the entire body. Your therapist is assessing the pulsation of your cerebrospinal fluid within your cerebrospinal cortex and gently coaxing it back into a healthy state. This pulsation can be felt and affected all over the body. We call it the Craniosacral Rhythm. You may or may not be able to feel this yourself. Don’t fret, it takes everyone time and training to be able to feel it. Additionally, Craniosacral Therapy is used to adjust the bones of skull. Contrary to popular belief, the bones of the skull do not completely fuse with age. They remain just slightly, ever so slightly pliable. Enough that a skilled therapist can methodically move and stimulate these bones to promote a healthy movement of fluids within the skull and beyond.
Craniosacral therapy is used to treat all kinds of conditions, ranging from Allergies and Anxiety to PTSD, Bipolar Disorder, Sleep Apnea, and TMJ. Receiving this therapy tends to put you in a trance. It is like a deep intense meditation, or like listening to an ASMR soundtrack. To have someone put their hands on you with such intense sensitivity, is a truly powerful experience.
Crainosacral Therapy is done with clothes on. You can even keep your shoes on if you like. The best clothes would be like what you would wear to a yoga class: Allowing for modesty, flexibility, and comfort during freedom of movement. This also allows your therapist to more easily do a full body assessment. Please remove all watches and jewelry before the session starts. We generally recommend coming in for bodywork every 4 weeks for everyone. Your specific situation may be different, so talk with your therapist about a good treatment plan for you.
