"Visionary Craniosacral Work is a style of energetic, hands-on therapy a subtle form of bodywork that works with the deepest tissues in the body. The focus is on the 22 cranial bones, spine and sacrum; as well as the brain, cerebrospinal fluid, and surrounding membranes. My touch is very light, engaging your own body"s rhythms for healing. Nothing I do or nothing you take heals your body your body heals itself when supported appropriately. VCSW can be that support to allow your body to do what it needs to do.
The benefits of supporting you mentally and emotionally extend out to affect the rest of the spiderweb of your being supporting your digestive and immune systems, and increasing your metabolic health. Your blood sugar, blood pressure, digestive tract, and mood all work better when your nervous system is nourished.
What happens during a Visionary Craniosacral Work session?
Treatments are typically done with you lying face up on my treatment table, while fully clothed. I hold my hands in various spots to assess your craniosacral rhythm, feeling for restrictions. Letting your tissues guide me, I hold awareness and wait until I feel or see signs of release (softening of the area, deep breath, stillness of eye movement, stomach gurgling, etc.).
When I place my hands on different areas of your body (head, neck, upper chest, upper back, low back, feet, etc.) I can sense into your "field", your craniosacral rhythm; your fluid wave; your body"s internal flow. The Milne Institute refers to the ability to do this as the "heart of listening." Each hold may be held 5, 10, or 15 minutes or longer, if your body needs time to open and integrate the experience.
Creating change in your body is not always comfortable. Re-experiencing or remembering aspects of an original injury or trauma is a sign that your body is integrating what may have been unresolved and stuck in your tissues; but these sessions are a safe space for your experiences. After your session and over the next few days, you may notice fluctuations in your symptoms, sleep, or emotions as your body continues to process changes."
