What to expect from a Craniosacral session:
You will be fully clothed, lying on a massage table in a supported and comfortable way. Craniosacral Therapy involves a very light, gentle touch often applied to the feet or shoulders to start and then to wherever the inherent treatment plan of the body takes us. Some common places to touch are the cranium, sacrum (triangle bone at the base of the spine) and the spine. Sometimes it takes some negotiation to get the touch just right so you can deeply relax. I will guide you in this process which, in itself, can be very healing. I may ask you from time to time what you are experiencing, and will help you to stay present with whatever your experience is. You are welcome to follow your comfort ability, asking questions, relating your experiences or dwelling in stillness and silence. At the end of the session I will take some time to check in about how you are doing. This is a great opportunity to find words for your experience and reflect on how differently you feel after your session. The effects can also be felt even after you leave your session.
During the session, you may:
Relax so deeply that you fall asleep
Enter a quiet meditation-like state
Feel as if you are dreaming while awake
Experience memories or insights while on the table
Enjoy a pleasant sense of warmth, softening, widening or floating
At times, you may experience other kinds of sensations, as energy that has been held in the body is released. If this occurs, just stay present with your breath and bodily sensations and allow this energy to discharge. The session quite often involves a process of letting go of patterns that inhibit your health and vitality.
At the end of the session, you may:
Feel relaxed, but also energized
Find yourself breathing more fully and deeply
Stand straighter and taller
Feel more comfortable in your body
You may feel a new sense of peace and ease as you leave the office to return, renewed, to your life.
