What to Expect from Your Session


Craniosacral Therapy

Biodynamic Craniosacral Therapy™ is a gentle, yet profound, non-invasive, hands-on treatment for the whole body. Performed on a massage table, the client is fully clothed and the touch is light and still. Treatment focuses on the nervous system and supports the health of the whole being. 


What a session is like

We'll begin with a brief health history and will take time to connect about your current physical and emotional state before any physical contact is made. I will guide you through this process so that you are relaxed and comfortable before we start. You will begin seated in a chair and will remain fully clothed throughout the session. Next, you will transition to a massage table, supported comfortably by a Biomat®., which uses a combination of fabrics and amethyst stones to generate far infrared rays. This provides warmth and relaxation, benefitting muscles on the surface as well as cells and tissues in the deepest parts of the body. The warm, stimulating waves temporarily increase circulation. This deep tissue heating relaxes the muscles and tissues surrounding the joints, relieving pain and discomfort.

Craniosacral Therapy (CST) involves a very light, gentle touch. We may begin at your feet, at your head (cranium), or on your sacrum (the triangular bone at the bottom of the spine). From there, the rest of the body will be addressed as needed.

During the session, you may:

  • Relax so deeply you fall asleep
  • Enter a meditative-type 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

A session generally lasts 60 minutes. During that time, I will gently and quietly hold parts of your body, listening to its subtle rhythms and tracking changes in your system.

You will experience profound change. While a single session can have noticeable effects, it often takes multiple sessions to achieve lasting results. Like most things in life, I find that consistency over time yields the greatest benefit.


benefits

Because CST is gentle and non-invasive, it is suitable for people of all ages, including infants, children, and the elderly. It can be effective in acute and chronic cases and is useful in addressing past trauma and injury. CST is excellent as a preventative therapy, facilitating the resolution of imbalances within a person's system of which they may not be consciously aware. This type of therapy is proven to complement other treatment modalities, including physical therapy, chiropractic, acupuncture, post-surgical rehab, and dental work.

Conditions that respond well to CST are:

Auto accidents, surgery, anesthesia, falls, head injuries,

dental work, physical or emotional abuse, PTSD,

birth, pre-conception, pre-natal, post-natal, medical interventions,

problems of aging, stiffness, dryness, memory loss, anxiety, depression, dyslexia,
