What is a session like?
A session begins with us talking. I would like to get to know you and assess your needs and hopes for the session. This is a great time to ask questions.
You will take off your shoes and lay fully clothed on the table. You will lay like this for the duration of the treatment. I welcome you to close your eyes, take a few deep breaths, and relax into the table. I will assess your Craniosacral rhythm by placing my hands on your head, feet, thighs, or shoulders. I will gently hold specific areas of the trunk of your body to release tensions and restrictions. I will put my hands on certain areas of your trunk as well as under you. I will slide my hand under your sacrum as well as under other areas of your trunk. I will also gently place my hands on and under your skull and jaw. Throughout the session I will check in with you for feedback and to assess your comfort level.
After the session is a great time to give me your feedback or talk about any insights or sensations you may have felt during the treatment.
What might I feel during a session?
During a session, you may:
Experience a sense of deep relaxation or meditative-like space
Experience a space of “in between” asleep and awake
Feel as though you are dreaming while awake
Sense subtle movements, shifting, or releases in the body
Experience a sense of warmth, softening, widening, or floating
Experience memories or insights
Experience an emotional release
Experience other sensations or energies in various parts of the body
Every body is different and you will experience sensations that are unique to you. There are no expectations for what you “should” feel, so don’t worry about feeling the “right things” and simply enjoy the moment.
What might I feel after a session?
After a session, you may:
Feel light-headed or spacey
Notice a positive shift in mentality or headspace
Experience new insights
Notice an improvement in posture
Notice an improvement in sleep
This is a treatment that is administered to a subtle body system; therefore, everyone notices the results differently. We all have a different level of body awareness and some of us are able to pick up on the effects more easily than others. I encourage you to pay attention to your body after the treatment to see if you notice any changes throughout the rest of the day, as well as monitoring your sleep for a few nights after treatment.
Your body continues to process changes after the session which may help you continue to experience benefits for a period of time, sometimes up to a few days, after the treatment. Even though you may not necessarily feel a big change in your body, know that your body experienced an intense and unexpected change and that a lot is happening inside of you. Be gentle with yourself. Drinking extra water and getting enough sleep are great ways to continue to support your body after a treatment.
