I'm forever thinking up new ways to make craniosacral therapy more accessible and understandable so today I've created a simple A to Z!
A is for ANXIETY More and more clients are coming with the symptoms of anxiety and panic attacks for treatment
B is for BALANCE Our bodies know how to self repair; Craniosacral treatment allows the space for this to happen
C is for CSF The Craniosacral Fluid that bathes our brains and spinal cord is magic, just magic!
D is for DIAPHRAGMS These transition points in the body tend to hold stress and tension and respond well to CST
E is for EXHAUSTION We push ourselves to the limit, CST allows the body time to build its resources again
F is for FLOW Think of the great River of Life flowing through our bodies; this is what we therapists tune into
G is for GENTLENESS Something that is personally very important to me: allowing a gentle unfolding of health again
H is for HARMONY CST allows the orchestra of our mind, body and spirit to play at optimum strength.
I is for INHERENT TREATMENT PLAN Each client's body shows the way to health and healing. Each is different.
J is for JOY Some clients experience the spaciousness that CST brings as bubbles of joy within!
K is for KNOWING The father of CST, Dr Sutherland had 'Be Still and Know' inscribed on his grave
L is for LISTENING The key to a good craniosacral treatment is the deep listening that offers healing to clients
M is for MIDLINE An important part of the work, our tree trunk, is what everything else orients around
N is for NERVOUS SYSTEM Usually in our world this is in hyperdrive; CST allows the rest and digest part to thrive
O is for OCCIPUT So many cranial nerves come through this key part of our bodies; it's a hold most practioners use
P is for PACING Allowing a client to know the safety of containment and the freedom of space at their own pace
Q is for QUALITY OF LIFE In my experience, CST allows all the entrenched patterns of inertia to move and be released
R is for RHYTHMIC IMPULSES This is the expression of the Breath of Life that we palpate in a client through gentle touch
S is for STILLNESS This is where the healing really happens and is profound and an honour to be with
T is for TIDES The three tides (CRI, Mid-Tide and Long Tide) are the ocean of knowledge within that we tune into
U is for UNDERSTANDING In a CST session, both the mind and the body can come to a place of understanding
V is for VITALITY Building resources enables us to have more energy for life itself
W is for WELLBEING The focus of any healing modality: reminding the body of pure and utter wellbeing
X is for EXISTENCE I can cheat!
Y is for YOU Every single session allows you to be present, to remember your original matrix blueprint of health
Z is for ZEAL and ZEST Craniosacral therapy can rejuvenate you - just check out some of the testimonials!
