CRANIOSACRAL AND MYOFASCIAL THERAPY

 

 

WHAT IS CRANIOSACRAL AND MYOFASCIAL THERAPY AND DYNAMIC BODY BALANCING?

CranioSacral and Myofascial Therapy uses gentle hands-on body work to release tensions deep in the body; relieving pain and dysfunction and improving whole-body health, wellness, and function.

Using gentle holding techniques, practitioners release restrictions in the craniosacral system and the myofascia that surround the central nervous system. (The craniosacral system is the fluid and membranes that surround and nourish the brain and spinal cord. The myofascia is the muscles and fascia.) If balance is restored within these systems, then there is balance in the muscles, which will balance the bones, and will free up the flow of nerves, blood, and energy channels. If one area is out of balance, then all areas of the body are out of balance. A balance in the craniosacral system and myofascia is the key to balance within the physical body. It’s that simple!

Dynamic Body Balance blends craniosacral and myofascial therapies plus biofield therapies and movement to balance the body fully.

HOW DOES CRANIOSACRAL THERAPY WORK?

Craniosacral and Myofascial Therapy enhance the body’s ability to self-correct through balancing and normalizing the environment around the brain and spinal cord.

When our body endures injury or the everyday stresses and strains from the demands we place upon it, whether physical, emotional, or chemical, the fascia and craniosacral system may become tight and restricted  which then restrict the flow of blood, nerves and energy within that muscle or organ. Long-term restrictions may result in thick fibrous areas within the fascia that will cause dysfunction and eventually dis-ease within the systems of the body. This causes an unhealthy central nervous system and since every other system interacts with it, the results are an unhealthy, unbalanced body.

Fortunately, these restrictions can be corrected and balanced using gentle holding techniques. The practitioner uses this interactive touch to evaluate the craniosacral system by gently placing her hands on the body or head to feel the rhythm of the craniosacral system and test for ease of motion. She will then release any restrictions in the tissues and cranial bones, restoring physical, emotional, and energy balance.

WHAT TO EXPECT AT A SESSION

CST sessions are in a quiet, private setting. The client is fully clothed and treated while relaxing on a padded table, seated on a chair or standing. Children may bring a favorite blanket or toy that brings them comfort/security. Parents remain with the child throughout the session and are encouraged to participate in therapy as directed. Reactions to CST are individual to each client, typically  a sense of relaxation and calmness as their fascia unwind. Children may fall asleep or move around the room. 

Each session is uniquely tailored to the client’s individual needs and those needs may be resolved in just one session or it may take several. 

WHAT TO EXPECT AFTER A SESSION

Reactions to CST are individual to each client. The next day, you may feel relaxed, refreshed, tired or energized. Children may sleep more. Some people experience “clearing” symptoms such as frequent urination, bowel movements, vomit, slight headache, or mucus, as toxins leave the body. Symptoms may also take the form of an emotional release. These symptoms are usually temporary.  Drink plenty of water to help flush toxins out. Also, relax and allow your body to re-set. Honor what your body is telling you. Feel free to contact us if you have any questions about any clearing reactions.
