Why you would seek this type of session:
Do you want to feel comfort and ease in your body? Would you like to address structural issues at their core? Do you want to honor the integrity and wisdom of your body? Would you like to reacquaint yourself with the wonder and vastness of your being?
The nature of this work:
Cranial Sacral Therapy is subtle bodywork and energy work which help balance structure and flow by working with the circulatory rhythms of the body.
Ortho-Bionomy®* is a non-invasive form of bodywork, energy work, and self-care tools that work with your self-correcting reflexes to create relief, relaxation, and long-lasting results.
What a session is like:
Sessions are fully-clothed and usually take place on a massage table, or sometimes seated or standing. We may work with strong compression, light touch, or we may see what shifts when you bring new awareness to posture, play, and body mechanics. Sometimes the body just needs gentle witness and validation to complete its own processes.
Issues Therapeutic Bodywork can be helpful with:
-quicker recovery from injuries
-better body mechanics
-restoring comfort, joy, and aliveness
-feeling more connected to your body
-clear physical and energetic boundaries
-being your authentic self
-safety and agency in your body and your life
Cranial Sacral Therapy and Ortho-Bionomy are based in osteopathy, a branch of medicine which aligns structure and restores circulation by engaging the holism and self-healing properties of the body and being, and respecting the autonomy of the person. Osteopathy is fundamentally a philosophy and practice of relationship and liberation.
Both work with balancing the nervous system and supporting a sense of agency, they are well-suited to those with unresolved trauma.
Because CST and OB are both physical and energetic, they can also be done at a distance.
