Craniosacral Therapy / Fascial Energetics

The physical body is a manifestation or representation of an energy field made of segments of vibrations. Nothing rests, everything vibrates. Everything in some subtle way, moves. Every living things pulses with the flow of life force that pervades the universe. Life is movement. When this movement is disturbed we get disease or reduced function.

Disease or illness typically develops in the energetic field first before symptoms appear. In the energy field this is commonly characterised as an imbalance of energy flow (stagnation, excess or deficiency). In fascial energetics we refer to this imbalance of energy as a lesion. Over time, the disease or illness progresses and develops to the point where symptoms appear in the physical body. When the disease or illness is found both in the energy field and physical body, treatment should be focused on both the energy field and the physical body simultaneously for best results.

Trauma (car accidents, falls or sports injuries), the energy field is disrupted at the same time as the physical body experiences the injury. At the time of injury the symptoms and pain will occur at the same time. The healing of the energy field and the physical body are not separate. Clinically, the healing of both the energy field and physical body can occur at the same time. Occasionally, the energy field needs to be balanced first before the physical body can be treated. For example, if you break a bone or experience a sprain/strain injury on a ligament or muscle, the energy flow is disrupted at the same time as the physical injury, improving the energy flow first will help aid in the healing of the physical body.

The principles of the BodyTalk Craniosacral Therapy and Fascia Energetics are:

  1. The body is a dynamic unit of function consisting of Mind, Body and Spirit
  2. The movement of the body fluids and energy is essential to the maintenance of health
  3. Structure and function are interrelated
  4. The nervous system plays a crucial part in controlling the body
  5. The body is a self regulating vital mechanism which is constantly looking for balance and homeostasis.
  6. The body has an inherent capacity to defend and repair itself

BodyTalk Craniosacral Therapy is based on the Upledger CraniaSacral Therapy 10 Step Protocol incorporating BodyTalk Biodynamic Fascial Energetics techniques to balance the craniosacral rhythm in the body.

Fascia Energetics, works on the muscles, diaphragms, bones, joints, sutures, visceral and vital structures (nerve, artery, veins and lymphatics) of the body. They can help with the following:

  • Relax (tight) hypertonic muscle
  • Decreases joint hypo mobility (stiffness)
  • Reduces fascial tension
  • Decreases pain
  • Reduces local edema
  • Improves range of motion
  • Improves function
  • Improves circulation
  • Improves neural flow
  • Improves energy flow
  • Tonifies deficiency
  • Sedates excess
  • Unblocks stagnation
  • Improves physiology
  • Improves sutural or cranial bone mobility by reducing osseous tension
  • Improves the mobility of intracranial membranes
  • Release stored emotions, beliefs and consciousness
