The Body Tells Its
Story, Craniosacral work in action
client came to me, a woman who is, herself, a massage therapist.
In the first session, I noticed that the shape of her head, on the
right side at the occiput, was concave, from travel through the
birth canal 46 years earlier! I worked with this concave area very
gently in the course of this first session.
At the end
of the session, the client asked me what I discovered during the
session and I shared what I had noted about the shape of her head.
The client asked me if there was anything she could do to help rectify
the concave shape of her head. I shared with her what craniosacral
practitioners tell parents of newborns with misshapen heads, to
softly brush the hand over the misshapen part of the head, to bring
the area into fullness. It is very easy to rectify a misshapen infants
head, given the plasticity of a newborn cranium. I did not know
what results to expect with a client who had this concave shape
for over four decades.
is someone who works consciously on herself, with frequent bodywork
sessions and chiropractic work and consistent emotional/spiritual
processing of her life. When she returned for a second craniosacral
session about three weeks after the first session, I was astonished
to palpate that the concave shape of her head had filled out to
at least 90% of normal shape.
It was an amazing
result that I attribute to the clients attention she gave
to rectify the shape of her head. She shared with me that she did
brush her hand over the concave area of her head everyday, and that
she worked on this issue with her chiropractor, as well as with
other holistic health practitioners with whom she works.
shared with me that the physical correcting of the shape of her
head correlates to the fullness that she wants in the rest of her
life in relationships, in finding her voice in work situations,
in leading a happy, well-rounded and fulfilling life. Holographically,
the work she did to rectify the concavity of her head rippled out
to emotional, social and spiritual aspects of her life. To witness,
first hand, this womans results is an amazing experience for
me, as a human being and a practitioner. With love, focus, consistency
and intention, we can change things in our lives, even something
so seemingly solid as the shape of the bones in ones head.

From the Field
An article titled Who is a Healer? by
Alison Rose Levy in the Living Now section of the online
Huffington Post continues the dialogue between holistic and conventional
medicine. While I, as a holistic nurse, and now licensed massage
therapist, have been in on this discussion for 35+ years, there
are more physicians involved in the dialogue now, on the holistic
perspective of it, and this feels great. If this dialogue interests
a look at the article.
