I remember the first time I felt the craniosacral rhythm. My craniosacral therapy instructor had us pair up to practice. We were to try to feel each other’s craniosacral rhythms. I was not sure what I was feeling. Was my mind playing tricks on me, or was what I was feeling the real deal? I came to the class with a healthy amount of skepticism. I knew I was feeling something, but it was so light and I had to keep very still and quiet to keep feeling it. I decided that if the instructor could feel what I felt, it might not just be me. I signaled for her help with a tip of my head. Once she came over, I asked her if she could take over and tell me what she was feeling in detail. When she told me exactly what I was feeling, I was hooked. I took the other 3 classes and started practicing on anyone willing to let me practice craniosacral therapy on them. It was hard to get my clients whom had grown accustomed to years of my firm pressure massage to try a therapy that used no more than the weight of a nickel on them. Some tried but most stuck with regular massage and that was ok, because that’s what was working for them. I would still practice on them whenever possible just not whole sessions. Slowly I got more and more people seeking specifically craniosacral therapy. These individuals almost always had spent a long time living with whatever condition brought them in, and many years seeking relief by trying a wide range of therapies from mainstream to alternative with no lasting results. Craniosacral therapy has given them what was missing from those other therapies. I still love all the therapies I provide and want to keep doing them all, but I’m so happy to have this subtle but powerful tool. I have given and received great healing from craniosacral therapy and will continue to take every opportunity to be present in its tremendous healing power.
