How a Session is Performed

A CranioSacral Therapy session usually takes place in a quiet, private setting at CentreSpring Spa.  We recommend that clients wear loose, comfortable clothing.  Clients remain fully clothed, though most choose to remove their shoes.  The session is performed with the client reclining on a massage or treatment table while the practitioner stands or sits, positioned at various times throughout the session at the client’s head, middle torso or feet.

What You May Experience During a Session

Experiences during a CST session are as individual as the clients and practitioners themselves.  They also may differ from session to session.  At times, a client may deeply relax or even fall asleep; at other times, he or she may talk a great deal, recalling memories or expressing emotions.  Some will remain still during the entire session hardly noticing the practitioner’s evaluation and treatment, while others will experience sensations within the body as their process is carried out.

At various time throughout the session, the practitioner will support a client’s limbs and spine while facilitating release of accumulated tension.  This process is called energy cyst release or tissue release.  During this release, the client might recall circumstances surrounding a past shock, trauma or injury.  Releasing and re-experiencing past hurts assists the body in reversing dysfunction and restoring the previous level of mobility.  This entire process has been named SomatoEmotional Release.

What You May Experience Following a Session

Just as individuals experience CST sessions differently, the immediate results can be diverse as well.  This relaxed state may elicit the desire to sleep for many hours after a session.  Others may experience an increase in energy.  Reduction of pain or an increase in function may occur immediately after the session, or it may develop gradually over the next few days.  Since CST helps the body resume its natural healing processes, it is common for improvement to continue weeks after the session.  It is helpful for a cumulative effect to start a series of sessions relatively close together.  For some there may be a reorganization phase as the body adapts to the release of previously held patterns.

What a Patient Has to Say

“I was having migraines weekly. I was in a constant state of headache and was suffering in my career and at home as a wife and mom. We ruled out everything – including having a MRI and multiple scans done! I had tried everything! Having already been gluten and dairy free – I was frustrated at the thought of possibly taking out even more foods that might be triggers. I was taking magnesium and Boost (with all the proper vitamin B’s), diffusing oils, going to a chiropractor, getting acupuncture, and though I had temporary in the moment relief, nothing was helping. That’s when Dr. Taz adamantly recommended that I start seeing Molly for CranioSacral therapy. After only two sessions, I had a two week reprieve of headaches! This felt like a complete miracle. After my fourth session, I noticed marked improvement! Now, I’m only seeing Molly once or twice a month and my symptoms have almost completely subsided. I now swear by CranioSacral Therapy! It has saved my home and work life, and I recommend it to anyone who is struggling with any type of pain and can’t find relief. She’s incredibly gentle and encouraging!” – Jessica
