In a safe, comfortable environment, you rest fully clothed on a treatment table. The practitioner then uses light touch to facilitate the flow and movement of energy in the body (Polarity, Reiki), or to detect and release restrictions within the CranioSacral system (CranioSacral Therapy).
Because these modalities support and complement each other, a session may combine techniques from all three. During the session, you may experience a deep relaxation, subsequently increasing awareness of habitual tension and constriction in the body.
You and the practitioner then investigate what is contributing to these "holding patterns".
- Could it be how you are sitting or standing at work?
- Tension brought on by emotional stress?
- Compensatory movement patterns due to an old injury?
Once you know, you can address the problem and actively participate in your own health.
