I had quite the day of pampering today. Hair cut and color and solving world problems with my son-in-law. A trip to Hobby Lobby to get supplies and my first craniosacral therapy massage…and then dinner prepared by my daughter.
Jenny’s neighbor, Rachel, has been doing massage therapy for several years and has included craniosacral massage in her therapy options. This particular healing technique has it’s share of naysayers…and that is fine with me….I have a different opinion on the technique and the results. Rachel brought in her massage table (just like the movies) and set it up in Jenny’s bedroom, turned on some new age music and had me lay on her table fully clothed….and then she layed hands on me. Gently. Very light touch and very little movement. My feet, my lower legs, my upper legs and then each side of my hips and the right side of my abdomen where she stayed for a long period of time. Just touch. Then she slipped one hand under my right side while still maintaining contact with the upper right abdominal area…this is when I totally relaxed. I found a deeper meditative state than I have reached before. It came peacefully and calmly. She moved up to my head and neck…at one point when she layed her hands on the side of my head up near my forehead, I started feeling a pain on the left side behind my eyes. She slightly moved her hands and the headache dissolved. Keep in mind…this is not pressure this is touch. When my hour was up, I became aware of reality, sat up on the side of the table and felt like I had a buzz. It took me several minutes to lose the feeling that I had just awakened from a long winter’s nap.
I share my experience as encouragement to try this procedure. Read up on the cranio sacral therapy. Read both sides of the story and opinions and then try it. Find out for yourself if this type of therapy might be the last one you need to try to help heal your migraine, other aches and pains and your mind.
I’m willing to answer any questions you may have or if you are in the Kansas City area, I can connect you with Rachel.
Until next time…..
