Is a therapy to liberate the body and the mind of the negative effects of traumas of the past.
We store our life experiences in our bodies. Because Craniosacral Therapy techniques are gentle but powerful, the effects go deep without stimulating the body’s defences and can easily unlock the residue of trauma stored in the tissues. This unlocking and facilitated resolution process is called Emotional Release. It is an integral part of Craniosacral Therapy. Emotional Release uses dialoguing and therapeutic imagery along with other verbal, energetic and physical support techniques to initiate change. These techniques promote the discovery and gentle release of the restrictions that contribute to pain and dysfunction.
Emotions rise to the surface, but emotional release is not necessarily a painful, cathartic event. It can be a friendly negotiation between you and your various parts. When we cling to our once-helpful coping mechanisms after they cease to be useful, they remerge as sources of pain and restriction. The therapist is the facilitator and mediator as they help guide you toward resolution. After receiving this process-oriented type of bodywork, people report greater clarity, peacefulness and insight, along with positive change in their physical symptoms.Osteopathy is a science with possibilities as great as the magnitude of the heavens. It is a science dealing with the natural forces of the body. We work as osteopaths with the traditional principle in mind that the tendency in the patient’s body is always toward the normal. There is much to discover in the science of osteopathy by working with the forces within that manifest the healing processes. These forces within the patient are greater than any blind force that can safely be brought to bear from without
