This is a healing modality that has its origins in osteopathy. It requires very gentle touch, no more then the weight of a nickel placed on your hand. The lightness of touch is very effective for this modality, as the practitioner can work at very subtle levels of restriction and blockages, allowing deeper levels of release and holding patterns to unravel.
How to Prepare for Craniosacral Therapy
You remain fully clothed during a craniosacral session. It is good to wear loose and comfortable clothes and to take off all your jewelry and belts. Before a session, it is good to prepare yourself with gentle breathing and calming the mind in whatever way that is best for you. Sometimes, just closing the eyes and counting your breath can relax and prepare you for a more nourishing and healing session.
