CranioSacral Therapy and MyoFascial Release
The techniques of both Upledger Institute CranioSacral Therapy and John Barnes MyoFascial Release focus on treating the fascial system of the body. Fascia is connective tissue that gives shape and structure to our bodies. It wraps around each cell, vessel, muscle fiber, muscle bundle, bone and organ as one large sheath of tissue. Because the fascia connects throughout the body, an injury in one area can refer consequences to another part of the body.
Our fascia protects us and is designed to resist force. This is why therapists engage the body with a very light pressure. With a gentle, constant touch, the fascia softens and unwinds. As the tissues soften, the therapist will follow the body and increase the pressure used.
For MyoFascial Release and Signature Sessions, please bring a bathing suit (two-piece for women) or running shorts (not leggings) and a sports bra (for women) to change into prior to your session.
The CranioSacral system consists of the soft tissues and fluid that protect your brain and spinal cord. CranioSacral Therapy (CST) is a gentle treatment that assists your body in releasing old injuries and improves the flow of cerebro-spinal fluid, which feeds the nervous system.
Dr. Upledger taught that the core purpose of CranioSacral Therapy is self-realization for the client. The therapist's role is to be grounded and present with you as your tissues unwind and your mind settles down into a place where you can access your own inner wisdom and the spark of the Divine within you.
We all offer both CranioSacral Therapy and MyoFascial Release as individual services. Or, you can blend these with other techniques in a Signature Session.
