craniosacral therapy 1“Heart has 4 words in it: Ear, Hear, Heat, and Art. The “Heart of Listening” requires us to have not only an ear, but to hear with our whole beings; it is energy work, and the heat in a healer’s hands is a potent form of energy. Working with real, whole human beings is a hot blooded endeavor that is, above all things else, an art.”
Hugh Milne

Craniosacral Therapy is a gentle, hands-on healing modality that works with subtle rhythms and energies in the body to support the healing of illnesses, injuries, and traumas.

The craniosacral system includes the brain, the cerebrospinal fluid, the system of membranes inside the cranium, all 22 cranial bones, the spine, pelvis and sacrum.

By using precise and gentle contacts, sensitive fingers and present attention, the movement and energetics of the bones are followed and longstanding patterns of tension and stored trauma are unwound. Sometimes, by touching just the right place in just the right way, a visionary can help the client understand what troubles them, and what they need to reclaim their equanimity, and their place in life. Such work can also help the client access and release their healing potential.

Sessions are approximately 1.5 hours long, with 1 hour of hands-on time. You receive this work fully clothed, lying face up on a massage table. Contacts may be made anywhere from the head to the feet, with each contact lasting from several minutes to 15 minutes or more.
