There aren’t many words to truly describe the experience of receiving Cranial Sacral Therapy. Unlike vigorous yoga or deep tissue massage, the approach is subtle, yet energetically deep. It is esoteric. Clients are fully clothed and lay on a comfortable massage table. By intuitively channeling energy through their hands, therapists tap into the rhythm of the fluid that flows around the central nervous system.
During a session, the client is taken into deep relaxation and may enter a “hypnogognic” state. This is the stony feeling we get when entering a lucid dream. In this place of deep relaxation, tension and past trauma in the brain and body will start to unwind. A cranial sacral session usually lasts from one to two hours. In a nutshell, it allows “chi” (flow of energy in the body) to move more freely.
Cranial Sacral Therapy helps to relieve:
- Migraines and Headaches
- TMJ related to teeth grinding and clenching
- Stress and anxiety
- Brain and spinal cord injuries
- Post-traumatic stress
