Reboot with Craniosacral Therapy
While deep-tissue massage is a sure way to relaxation, Craniosacral Therapy (CST) is a technique that offers an opportunity for the nervous system to reboot.
The craniosacral rhythm is similar to other systems in the body. It has a unique signature, just as one’s heartbeat and breath.
Most of us take our functioning immune system for granted. Unless we are experiencing extreme stress, we can be confident that our body is rejuvenating adequately. A big contributor to a healthy immune system is a properly functioning craniosacral system. Our cerebrospinal fluid (CSF) travels through the dural tube surrounding the spinal cord from the base of our spine to the top of our head.
As a Craniosacral Therapist, I am able to listen to this rhythm with my hands and through subtle, precise movement and attention, I am able to detect the inefficiencies and encourage the body to recalibrate.This technique encourages the CS rhythm to go still for a brief period (stillpoint), similar to turning off your electronic equipment to reboot. Because the spinal fluid is key in the health of the nervous system, CST offers deep relaxation for the client. CST is effective for sudden trauma such as whiplash and concussions as well as chronic conditions caused by learning disabilities, epileptic seizures, Parkinson’s disease or MS to name a few.
If you are only familiar with my deep tissue massage, consider incorporating 30 minutes of CST into your current sessions, or if you prefer, you could extend your regular session to 90 minutes. An hour CST session is also an option to experience the subtle yet powerful benefits of this technique.
