calming an overactive nervous system
What is Craniosacral?
Craniosacral is a gentle hands on method of evaluating and enhancing your nervous system’s natural capacity for self repair. While lying fully clothed on a massage table, the practitioner will gently apply manual pressure to your head, spine and limbs to tune in and “listen” to what is happening in your body. This light pressure acts as a mirror for the body and allows gentle releases to occur. Most people experience a sense of deep relaxation which extends into everyday life. Craniosacral Healing can help your over-active nervous system re-set itself, so you can experience greater rest, peace, and wholeness. Craniosacral therapy is so gentle that it is suitable for babies, children and the elderly.
I was in a car accident a few years ago and have been struggling with pain and borderline Fibromyalgia. I found Craniosacral Therapy very gentle and relaxing compared to all the other therapies I’ve experienced. After many massage sessions and chiropractic adjustments, this seemed the natural and gentle addition to my further healing and recovery…which seemed to plateau. I could feel my body relax and shift during the sessions. The sessions were very gentle and non invasive, leaving me relaxed in body and in mind. The fact that I could lie on my sacrum/tailbone for the length of the session, not needing to get up, was a relief. After the sessions I was able to sit and lie on my sacrum/tailbone for longer periods with less pain. It also helped my dominant hand function better and my headaches have become fewer. It was a relief to find a gentle therapy that didn’t leave me tensing up during treatments
