Craniosacral Therapy

With a trained pair of hands and a listening heart, craniosacral therapy can be one of the most healing spaces we can enter.  With our attention, the craniosacral wave can be felt as a rhythm and a field. I use light touch on the body and focused attention to listen to the body, and in doing so the mind and soul are soothed. When the body is given a chance to slow down then effective change can occur that lessens uncomfortable symptoms.  The term “craniosacral” describes the landscape of the body consisting of the multiple bones of the cranium, brain, membranes, the spine, sacrum, and the nervous system. The movement, or lack of movement, in this system has physical, mental, emotional, and spiritual impacts on our lives.  When there are blockages or restrictions in the natural rhythm, sometimes called the “Breath of Life”, the system will alert us with uncomfortable symptoms: pain, tension, anxiety, or mental suffering. A trained craniosacral therapist “listens” to the body with a keen sense of where the stuck places exist in the bones and tissues and gently guides them to a release, returning the system to a freer flow. This generally improves our outlook on life and helps us move through with greater ease.

I love to work with people in this way, for it is slow, gentle and quiet, very much like meditation! – Megan Sewell
