I recently attended Level 2 of the CranioSacral Therapy training with the Upledger Institute in Minneapolis, MN. This was one of the most inspiring seminars I have ever taken. John Upledger is the founder of CranioSacral therapy. He states “CranioSacral Therapy is based on the discovery of the concrete physiological facts, processes and techniques…yet, its effectiveness depends on much more than the master of anatomical and physiological information and the ability to perform its technical procedures. We believe that every symptom, pain or complaint deserves an investigation to determine whether or not it is the voice of a deeper problem or simply something such as a freak accident, an infection, etc. Initially CranioSacral Therapy employs a soft, gentle use of the hands to facilitate the self-correction of the craniosacral system. This touch is concurrently used to convey to the Inner Physician (of the client) the love, trust and sincere dedication of the therapist. This energy is offered without conditions or strings attached in order to facilitate the deepest possible healing.”
My work with my clients who are receiving CranioSacral therapy has been very encouraging and rewarding. Migraine headaches, fibromyalgia, eating disorders, emotional disorders and simply pain states have been helped by this very gentle therapy. I feel so blessed to have been trained and to continue to see the wonderful results that my clients experience. Let me know if you want to know more and I will be happy to provide more information when I see you.
“There is virtually no limit to the kinds of problems CranioSacral Therapy might help to alleviate. CranioSacral therapy always improves fluid movement in all systems throughout the body. By doing this it enhances many functions: the provision of nutrients to the the cells; the removal of toxins and waste products from the tissues; the circulation of immune cells, thereby increasing the body’s natural defenses against disease-producing bacteria and viruses; the delivery of fresh blood to organs and tissues; and the movement of cerebrospinal fluid.”
