CRANIOSACRAL THERAPY


 

There is fluid within and around every cell in your body. That suggests that everything can and does change. You can cooperate with a gentle, potent and relaxing process of change-—as it happens—through Craniosacral Therapy. In a comfortable setting with delicate, supportive touch (mostly your head, spine and sacrum), Doug can facilitate your body to show you its internal physiological rhythms, like the rhythm of breath, heart, or the gentle fluctuation of cerebrospinal fluid. You may begin to feel like you are floating-—and in fact you are! The fluid within and around your cells has nearly the same composition as sea-water, and it has subtle waves and currents and tides...just like the ocean...that are indicators of health. As you relax deeply your body can let go of the extra holding patterns to which it may be habituated, float, and then, most remarkably, it can restore itself, coordinate with the health inside, and feel increasingly comfortable and free.
