For the first 10 years of my massage career, I was an aggressive, deep tissue therapist. I dug into my clients’ tissues until they cried "uncle" in order to release their physical issues. It left me exhausted and drained by the end of each day. And I’d still return to the same problem during their next appointment. Needing a way to save my body from long term wear and tear and better help my clients, I ventured into Craniosacral Therapy. What I learned changed how I do massage and how I work with clients off the table. Here’s the big news flash; it’s your issue, not mine. Your central nervous system has to release the tissue, not me. It is my job to help you feel what is causing the issue and teach you how to release it. Sometimes this is physical. Sometimes it is mental or emotional. I don't decide. I simply translate what your body is saying. When you participate in a release on this level, your awareness increases. Your ability to release on your own improves and your body heals. You learn how to prevent the issue from happening again, making life less of a struggle. Wouldn’t that be nice? It is - just ask my clients.
