Why would you go see a Craniosacral Therapist?
The best answer that I can think of is that you want to feel good again. If you are feeling stressed, if your body is in pain, or if you have been in a terrible accident, Craniosacral Therapy can help. I have treated people who have experienced great results who have come in with anxiety, Traumatic Brain Injury & Concussions, car accidents, TMJ, back & neck pain, just to name a few conditions. The major reason that I have success helping people as a Craniosacral Therapist is because I use a method that is so gentle, that the body welcomes the touch. I don’t have to force my work through layers of fascia. Rather, my hands listen to what the body already knows I trust that it can unwind painful patterns by using craniosacral techniques that are supportive and precise. I believe we want to heal, and that having a compassionate presence helps move that process through naturally. It feels to me like I hold a flexible yet centered point for my clients to re-organize around. It works for me as a therapist, and it works for them as clients.
I have been practicing bodywork for 20 years, and Craniosacral Therapy since 2003. During this time, I have studied and worked with advanced Craniosacral Therapy techniques, SomatoEmotional Release, and emphasized brain and spine related work in my work practice. What I have witnessed at times, is nothing short of a miracle. In 10 sessions, I have seen clients who have come in with fogginess, depression and pain get up and resume extraordinary lives. Now I don’t guarantee this, but it is possible. The people who have shown me the most success are those who are committed to their healing practice, those who are open to change, and those who can quietly take in the work, and express deeper thoughts, feelings and sensations as they show up during the session. This is because we are each whole. And when the mind, body & spirit connecting get tangled up, they need to be sorted out to tap back into the whole essence of the individual. When we connect to the deeper essence of life, great things can happen.
I don’t know that any one therapist is a Master in their own right. It is the client that has the power to heal. What you want to find in a Craniosacral Therapist is someone who has faith that your own “Inner Wisdom” who can show you the way back to health and wellbeing. As a Craniosacral Therapist, it is my job to use this model and all the techniques that I have learned to help you self-correct any dysfunctional patterns that show up. As you let go, the healing has begun.
I trust the Central Nervous System to communicate all of it’s know how as we set the stage for deep release, better balance, more vitality, and emotional clearing if necessary.
