Have you ever had your abdomen massaged? Most people will say no and very often many of us would be quite reluctant to have this part of our bodies touched and seen. That has always surprised me. What most of us do not know though is how beneficial this kind of therapy can help on so many levels.
More and more I try to introduce people to that wonderful therapy called Craniosacral therapy. What is it? Before anything more is written, let’s say it is just magical!
Craniosacral therapy is a gentle, non-invasive therapy that has its roots in the early 1900s in the osteopathic field. It has evolved over the years into different forms. It could be divided as a more structural approach, which is considered the biomechanics method, or/and as a biodynamic system, which would be more considered spiritual or energetic approach (which is how I use it).
What it does is detect the subtle imbalances in the basic rhythm of the body by listening deeply and awakening to the sacred presence of body intelligence. The practitioner places his or her hands at different places of the body, listen and help the body release the blockages. The light listening touch of CST (Craniosacral therapy) awakens your body to a deeper awareness and recognition of where tension is held and how to release it safely.
It can treat many conditions from high levels of stress, jaw tension, headaches, insomnia, babies with colic, neck, back issues and much more. In general people who have been treated with it will report a better sense of well-being, feel more balanced, sometimes sleep for the first time in years after just few minutes, and results are often much more profound than they expected.
It can be a treatment as itself or can be combined with a massage, or other therapy.
Until I see you next, stay warm and well.
