Craniosacral Therapy listens to the natural flow and rhythm of the body
by Teresa Graham, RMT Nature spirals … and that includes us. Have you noticed the whorls and circles in the trunk of a cut tree, how a cat will curl up and around itself to sleep within a tightly tucked ball, the spirals of sea shells, plant leaves, wave patterns in the sand left by the ocean’s waves… But nature’s swirls also open and release. The tree sends branches out from its outer circles, the cat gets up and stretches and the sand patterns are impermanent.
The human body spirals….our dna spirals within, we have linings (fascia) around our cells, muscles, our organs, even our skin acts as a lining that holds us together. Our mind spiralfs with emotions that wind us up or loosen and relax us.
As living beings we can run into problems when we don’t take the time to loosen and open those spirals but instead, allow life’s continual and stressful grinds to wind us tighter…ever tighter. We can begin to feel like a tightly wound spring ready to “boing” in uncontrolled patterns as we knock against those things around us and then lie in the place we land, still coiled and tight.
Craniosacral Therapy encourages the body to unwind, to loosen the tightness and just be. Craniosacral Therapy is very gentle and works in partnership with the body's innate understanding of the healing that it needs to do to achieve balance and wellness.
How do you think it would feel to “unwind from the grind”? Do you think it would feel wonderful to open up and balance, from top to bottom, while still staying firmly grounded in YOUR present?

The Right Touch: Craniosacral Therapy for Kids with Special Needs
Aside from feeling the flow, why do parents decide to bring their children to craniosacral therapists? Often families with kids who are on the autism spectrum or have learning disabilities go into what craniosacral therapist Julie Manwiller calls a “freeze.” This happens when parents and other family members — and the child himself — are so overwhelmed by the demands of and on a special-needs kid that the family system goes into freeze mode.
