CranioSacral Unwinding is a therapeutic modality that offers a specialty training for the body worker, massage therapies, chiropractor, physical therapist, anyone working in the healing arts with the body. It teaches the practitioner how to use their palpation skills (to become present in their hands) to get into harmony, resonance and rapport with the fluidic nature of the body.
It also teaches a thorough treatment of the connective tissue system throughout the body, from the tip of the toes to the top of the head. Students learn how to approach the client with health boundaries, honor the person and their innate healing process, and create a relationship that is noninvasive and client centered. Upon completion of this program students receive a certificate that acknowledges that they have met a basic competency in classical, contemporary and esoteric craniosacral techniques.
Craniosacral therapy is process work which speaks the language of cellular reality. The focus of this system is on garnering the healing energy within the body, which jump starts the person’s own healing ability and process.
The craniosacral rhythms are at the core of the body’s pulse; learning to palpate and balance them is like discovering the ebb and flow of the ocean. The student learns to contact the tissue, the rhythm within the tissue, and move with the tissue in a way that honors the way the cells move – getting in touch with the cellular memory – which leads into the places that have become devitalized or overcharged.
The practitioner talks to the tissue, reflects what is in the body and allows the client to interact with the movement of the tissue which gives them a reflection of who they are through the tissue.
Through presence and awareness these places become connected back to the primary healing core energy of the body, which is pulsating with the craniosacral (Primary Respiratory Rhythm) rhythm.
A relationship is established between the tissue (which holds much of the unconscious memory) and the core energy in the body. It is through these rhythmic pulsatory craniosacral pathways that subtle energy steps down into the physical tissues of the body nurturing them, bringing healing resonance and enabling them to perform all of the vital biological function in a healthy way.
The client thus becomes connected to the primary core of energy (PRR) which enables them to: relax tension, release energy blocks and open the energy pathways in the body, restore balance, and promote revitalization.
Craniosacral work is complimentary adjunctive therapy to any other modality, on the tissue or energetic level., and makes a significant contribution. As the person’s core energy becomes related to the work you have done, the tissue and the consciousness reorganize around the highest intelligence in the body and the work goes out very far into their lives.
“Craniosacral work is the Rolls Royce of bodywork.” – John Beaulieu, ND, Ph.D.
