Why is CranioSacral Therapy so important?
CranioSacral Therapy is a light-touch manual therapy that can create dramatic improvements in your life! It releases tension deep in the body to relieve pain and dysfunction and improve your whole body health & performance.
Every day you endure stresses and strains and your body absorbs them. But your body can only handle so much tension before the tissues begin to tighten and potentially affect the brain and spinal cord. Unfortunately, this can compromise the function of the central nervous system and the performance of nearly every other system in your body.
CranioSacral Therapy releases those tensions to allow the entire body to relax and self-correct. Using a gentle touch I evaluate your internal environment. Then I use distinctive light-touch techniques to release any restrictions I find. By freeing the central nervous system to perform at its best, CST naturally eliminates pain and stress, strengthens your resistance to disease, and enhances your health and well-being.
How was CranioSacral Therapy developed?
CranioSacral Therapy was developed by Dr. John E. Upledger, an osteopath physician featured in TIME magazine as one of America’s next wave of innovators. From 1975-1983, Dr. Upledger was a professor of biomechanics at the College of Osteopathic Medicine at Michigan State University. While he was there he led a team of anatomists, physiologists, biophysicists and bioengineers who performed and published the clinical research that formed the basis for the approach he named CranioSacral Therapy.
In 1985, Dr. Upledger founded the Upledger Institute to teach people worldwide about the value of this effective approach. Nearly 1000,000 therapists have since been trained in CST.
What is SomatoEmotional Release?
SomatoEmotional Release is a therapeutic process that uses and expands on the principles of CranioSacral Therapy to help rid the mind & body of the residual effects of trauma. The goal of an SER session is a comfortable holistic mind-body approach to dissipate the residual effects of past trauma and negative emotional experiences from the mind, body, and spirit and to gain insight as to how that held trauma is influencing their physical and emotional health.
The healing process is a journey! It takes us deeper into ourselves, sometimes discovering old patterns or injuries that we thought were no longer affecting us. While we cannot change the past, we CAN change the emotional charge and energetic hold the past continues to have on us; how it affects our actions and interpretations of how the world works, enabling us to renegotiate the meaning & release the held energy of the trauma. This inner work approach assists and empowers us to use the trauma as a catalyst, and as a transformative experience. Healing old emotional & physical traumas is a beautiful and necessary experience!
