Vinings is delighted to welcome Lisa Moore, an experienced Cranio Sacral Therapist, to the team of practitioners working from the lovely relaxed surroundings of Vinings Natural Health Centre.
Lisa explains what to expect from a typical session:
“We will always start with a written case history, this allows me to understand the exact reasons for your visit, and this is really important. Typically the session lasts between 40 – 50 minutes, although this can vary. You remain clothed, and will usually lie face up, but if this is uncomfortable you can lie on your side or you may be seated.
I will make light contact with your head, the base of your spine, and other areas, encouraging your body to relax and begin to make the changes it needs. Sometimes you will feel as if I am moving your head, arms or legs but it should all feel natural and comfortable, there is never any force applied. Because the body functions as a whole, I may focus on areas other than where your symptoms occur – remember the song: your hip bones connected to your thigh bone? Well, everything is connected, so an issue in your neck could be related to a sprained ankle that happened a long time ago. I know it sounds odd but our bodies are very good at bringing us back to “normality” and if this means that you stand slightly twisted as that eases a pain on your ankle, then this will form a habit that may eventually manifest as neck pain!
After a session there is occasionally a short period of adjustment as part of the healing process, where you may become more aware of symptoms. Sometimes people report relief after one one or two sessions: this was certainly true for me when I started having CRT! For long-standing problems, further sessions may be needed, and many people report that they benefit from regular treatent – think of it as a regular MOT! They say that, as well as noticing improvement in their physical or emotional symptoms, they feel that they have more awareness of their own needs and strengths, and their quality of life has improved.”
