Imagine deep inner peace made possible by tuning into your own "internal ocean current" ebbing and flowing... and returning you home to yourself...
Craniosacral is a special form of bodywork, developed by osteopathic physicians, which is both gentle and powerful. Clients rest clothed on a massage table. The touch is very light, seldom using more than 5 grams of pressure (the weight of a nickel) and sometimes less. Very quickly, clients drop into a deep state of relaxation.
Many of the health conditions which can contraindicate other forms of massage can actually benefit from Craniosacral. It has successfully been used to treat such diverse conditions as headaches, TMJ dysfunction, chronic middle ear infections, vertigo, depression, back pain, joint immobility, neck pain, sinus congestion, migraines, learning disabilities, and trauma.
CST works with the wisdom of the body to heal itself. The craniosacral system consists of the membranes and fluid surrounding the brain and the spinal cord. The ebb and flow (filling and draining) of cerebrospinal fluid through the system creates a unique rhythm (6-12 complete cycles per minute) which can be felt anywhere on the body.
The bodywork was fascinating; feeling at times like her hands were still and I was moving! Entirely unexpected and profoundly relaxing. I feel pleasantly grounded and "in" my body. Very nice. Pockets of leftover emotion seem to be stored in muscle and membranes; like body memory. Intriguing to merely think about, flat out breathtaking when it's happening to you in real time. Thank you Karen!!!
