Craniosacral Therapy has a subtle and profound healing system in which practitioners assist the body's natural capacity for self-repair. Gentle manipulation of the bones in the skull improves the functionality of the whole body. If you continuously find that you're feeling unmotivated and experience tiredness, your craniosacral system may be restricted.
The work is very gentle and non-invasive. Subtle suggestions are introduced through the practitioners' hands. Craniosacral practitioners listen to the subtle rhythms and pulsations of the craniosacral system. Craniosacral therapy does not, per see, heal the patient itself rather it facilitates encourages, and thereby elicits the body's own innate healing mechanisms to act accordingly.
During your treatment, the first thing you'll probably notice is a sense of deep relaxation, which generally lasts throughout the session with subsequent treatments. This release of tension often extends into everyday life.
The number of sessions is based upon how your body reacts to treatment as well as how many areas you are looking to have help with. Something chronic sometimes can take much longer than an acute issue. The frequency and duration of sessions will be discussed with your therapst.
What each person experiences are completely individual. If you are coming in with a lot of stress and that is the focus of the appointment, generally after the appointment you will feel very calm and relaxed. The goal of each appointment is to work towards a better quality of life.
A couple of important things that you should not do before a Craniosacral Therapy session are consuming alcohol or drugs. Generally, the effectiveness of the treatment takes about 24 to 48 hours to work through your body so it is important to be very gentle with yourself and try to not do anything too strenuous.
