"Worms will not eat living wood where the vital sap is flowing; rust will not hinder the opening of a gate when the hinges are used each day. Movement gives health and life. Stagnation brings disease and death."
-Proverb in Traditional Chinese Medicine
Craniosacral therapy is a specific bodywork modality that primarily uses light touch. It was initially designed to work with the bones of the cranium, spine, and sacrum; however, over the past few decades, it has evolved into a much more in-depth therapy involving the entire body.
Our bodies hold stories about our past traumas, whether emotional or physical. Pain and sensation in our bodies are often indicators that we have not integrated an experience. Craniosacral therapy is designed to meet these places within a person’s body and help release tension. By releasing tension, the body is able to express greater motion and inherent life.
Craniosacral therapy is an excellent therapy for anyone who is seeking optimal body function and wellness. Due to the emphasis on the brain, spinal cord, and nervous system, it is especially helpful for those suffering from headaches, neck and back pain, TMJ, vertigo, stress and stress-related illnesses, anxiety, and general fatigue. When used regularly, craniosacral therapy is an excellent tool for creating optimal well-being.
Rachel incorporates her training in naturopathy into all appointments, which enables her to assist you in nutritional, dietary or lifestyle support. In addition to craniosacral therapy, recommendations may include flower essences or herbs to assist in your healing process.
"Think of yourself as an electric battery. Electricity seems to have the power to explode or distribute oxygen, from which we receive the vitalizing benefits. When it plays freely all through your system, you feel well. Shut it off in one place and congestion results."
