Are your headaches leaving you incapacitated?
Three reasons why you should find a Craniosacral Therapist to help your headaches feel better:
- Craniosacral Therapy uses a very light touch. The intention of the hands is to listen quietly. The benefit in this is that we therapists follow the craniosacral rhythm and the tissue’s own inherent wisdom to show us what needs to happen for release. The only place that the client feels deeper pressure is in the subocciptal area, right where the spine and head meet. And that usually feels pretty great. Headaches disappear when this part of the neck relaxes.
- While Craniosacral Therapy works with the brain and the spine as the primary focus, the listening leads the therapist to all the places in the body that are also contributing to stress patterns. In Actuality, Craniosacral Therapy is a whole body treatment that helps the client to feel totally integrated and complete. Often headaches dissolve, but this is often because of the opening and reconnection between the head and the thoracic inlet. More blood and fluid flow between the head and the body which facilitates better circulation.
- Craniosacral Therapy addresses SomatoEmotional Release too. For therapists that have trained in this, it is a very supportive tool that helps clients to have a conversation with the unconscious and conscious. Deeply set patterns in the body can often released when the stressful emotions arise and have space to be felt. Sometimes our stories from the past are held in the tissues. Freeing ourselves into the present can be very healing.
If you are suffering from frequent headaches, and associated pain- look for a gentle approach that actually helps.
Craniosacral Therapy looks to bringing more balance throughout the whole cranium. But it is also brings more awareness to the whole. Bringing a deep sense of peace and relief to those who live with headaches.
