Clients often ask me how they can get the best out of their Craniosacral journey & how often they should come for therapy sessions; the answer to this is unique to each individual. I can ascertain a general idea from the initial consultation or case history, however it’s not until I lay my hands on you that I am able to listen in to how your body is choosing to express itself in each given session.
During your initial consultation we can discuss Block sessions or treatment plans. These are a wonderful investment for your future and present physical health and emotional well-being. Regular Craniosacral sessions enables the consistency required to connect with your own innate body wisdom through the process of gentle light touch that allows prioritised expression within.
We are complex beings and the deeper aspects of ourselves are often layered. The mind, body and spirit knows exactly how it needs to unfold. A slow and steady pace allows a safe and gentle space for you to move into the deeper aspects of certain somatic or deeply held physical elements. Physical pain often masks repressed trauma or emotional pain, so although one session may well alleviate a physical symptom, these symptoms may keep manifesting if they are not gradually released on a cellular level.
In my professional experience, I have found that the best results take place within 6-8 weeks of weekly sessions*. This gives time for your system to open up, relax and express what is being held within the physiological and anatomical elements of the body. Tissue cells are able to breath and thus long held tensions can gradually be released. This can, and often does, start happening during the first session; However, as mentioned the physical mental and emotional bodies are interlinked and it can take time through the unfolding process to ascertain where the core aspect may stem from and how your body creates coping mechanisms for holding stress
