Craniosacral Therapy

Craniosacral Therapy

Craniosacral Therapy - Toronto

All systems of our body are interconnected and have innate self-correcting capabilities.

Craniosacral Therapy is a light touch approach to working with your body to release tension and increase fluid flow at the deep level of your nervous system.

Craniosacral Therapy is performed fully clothed on a massage table, as your therapist I gently connect with areas of your body that cause you physical or emotional pain and “hold” the area so you don’t have to. Working at this level, you are able to relax and connect with your innate healing abilities and inner wisdom.

You are able to let go of, and understand long held pain patterns, in so doing your energy and optimism increases as the pain decreases.

Myofascial Release

Myofascial Release is one of the techniques we use to release emotional or physical trauma in the body. Restrictions in connective tissue can occur by emotional trauma (i.e. being in an abusive relationship), physical trauma (i.e. car accident), inflammatory responses, and/or surgical procedures.

Myofascial tissue release is a technique that helps to free connective tissue from restrictions held in the body that have been caused by some form of trauma. As a result, the treatments will facilitate the healing of the connective tissue and relieve symptoms as headaches, migraines, joint and muscle pains, sciatica, etc. On a psychological level, the release of constriction and pain may also alleviate symptoms of depression, fatigue and anxiety.

SomatoEmotional Release (SER)

SomatoEmotional Release (SER) is an aspect of CranioSacral Therapy. It is what happens in a session when an energetic pathway is opened allowing trapped emotions to flow out of your body.

Working with your whole being, especially at the site of the trauma, I am trained to deeply facilitate the release of the stuck emotions. I work with you to find the source of your pain and transform it.

What does this mean for you?

  • Reduced pain
  • Less stress and more relaxation
  • Better sleep
  • More energy
  • Clearer thinking and a sense of control in your life decisions
  • More body awareness and sense of what you need

What are Somatic body-work sessions like?

Depending on your needs, appointments run either 60 or 90 minutes. Before the session begins, we discuss how you are feeling and set an intention for your healing time. In sessions, people often feel their body and mind dropping into a deeply relaxed state. Soft lighting in the treatment room supports a calm atmosphere for healing. People experience relaxation, release of muscle tension and pain, insights, and a sense of lightness and peace.

I consider you to be the expert on yourself. In any session, I answer any questions you may have about what is occurring or what to expect after the treatment. You may want to wait to see how your sense of well-being improves before rescheduling any appointments. In general, people feel a difference in their pain within three sessions.
