Life is fast and the pace is getting faster - just watch a youngster on a computer and you'll start to see how much things have changed even in the last decade.
One of the downsides of the 24/7 availability of work emails and pressures is that most of us never fully relax and charge our batteries - or as we say in the craniosacral world, resource ourselves. The value of resourcing is so very important to our wellbeing, physically, mentally and emotionally. For when we are in a deeply relaxed state, the body has its best opportunity to repair itself and to let go of tension and stress.
The abundance of road rage, short tempers and increased time off work due to stress all point to the fact that many people do not reach this deeply relaxed state. This is where craniosacral therapy can help.
Here other Craniosacral Therapists give their own views of CST and its possible outcomes:
'It is a gentle but effective way of dealing successfully with many ailments, by overhauling the Nervous System and ensuring that the fractional motions of bones, body tissues, fluids and fascia are healthy and enjoying interior freedom of movement.'
'Craniosacral Therapy helps people to feel calm in a similar way to what may be experienced during some forms of meditation.'
'Think about the therapist as a facilitator who, by placing his/her hands on the head or sacrum or feet is listening to the rhythm within the body and through this contact enables the body to release tensions, calm its chaos and finally to reach a point of absolute silence where both client and therapist are in unison. It is in this silence that the body “does its work”. In this gentle space where mind and body are “held” safely by the therapist who is also focusing on the movement apparent inside the body, a deep sense of relief is often experienced.'
'In our understanding as Craniosacral Therapists there is an “Inherent Treatment Plan”. This is an inherent capacity to return toward health or at least the optimum level of health that is available at the time. Whatever the condition there is the possibility of transformation where there is support and understanding coupled with this empathic and compassionate contact’
