Remedial massage therapy like myofascial bodywork is a hands-on complementary healing modality that focuses on releasing the muscles (myo) & connective tissues (fascia) in order to relieve pain, aches & tension. This can be due to injuries, scar tissues (eg. from surgery), or lifetime of habitual patterns (eg. bad posture) resulting in adhesions & chronic pain. These adhesions can cause limited range of motion, tightness & pain not only in the affected area but extends throughout other body parts.
Craniosacral therapy has its roots in cranial osteopathy, traditionally focussing on the cranial bones, spinal vertebra and sacrum, as well as the central nervous system, cerebrospinal fluid and system of membranes. The craniosacral practitioner often focus upon optimizing the position, fluid movement (‘wave’) and energy (piezolelectric charge and chi) of these parts of the craniosacral system. Combining both analytic understanding and intuitive perception allows stillness to happen and real healing to occur.
