What to expect after a Craniosacral Biodynamics session

I invite you to check in with your system before you get on the table. Since healing always takes place in the present, even from old issues that came to reside in your system, it seems helpful to do a full body scan from head to feet, or feet to head, and notice what you notice before we start.

We all have many body stories! Sometimes, it’s good to just check in on current sensations. There may be a different story.

What you notice during a session can vary. Some clients fall asleep soundly. Some drift in and out of sleep. Some experience dreams or dream-like states. Some experience energy releases that are strong enough that they almost levitate off the table, waking them up, and some sleep through multiple energy releases that are small, like a tremor in the hands or feet.

Some notice going into stillness.

It’s all good.

I invite you to do a body scan again when you get off the table.

What’s different?

Right after a session, clients often feel more relaxed, calm, centered, whole. They may notice they feel less pain or tension.

Whatever changes about your issues coming in, as well as what you notice during your before-and-after body scans, is really how you learn what this work does for you.

And…most of the change occurs after a session. From sleeping better that night…to really feeling on top of things three days later…to noticing days or weeks later that an issue simply isn’t there any more…

…this is why craniosacral work is sometimes called subtle.

Distance healing

It’s so sweet to see how this new change in direction is turning out!

I’ve now worked with a couple of people whom I’ve never met. I wondered what it would be like.

Doing just one hands-on session with someone creates a relationship, a history, a shared experience, an energy field based on mutual intent for healing. The distance sessions I’ve done with people I know have worked out well, and I’ve attributed that to “Well, we’re familiar. We know each other. We’ve already established a field of trust.”

What would it be like to do a session, over the phone, with someone halfway across the U.S. whom I’ve never met?

I’m happy to report that, just as for hands-on sessions with people I know, these long distance sessions have also worked out well.

I listen with full attention. Sometimes I have a clue about what’s going on in their body-mind system, and sometimes I don’t. Either way, having the person relax and scan their body helps identify a location that wants attention.

From there, I ask questions that help the person engage in listening and communicating with that location.

I’ve recently encountered this quote:

Attention is the most basic form of love. Through it we bless and are blessed.

~ John Tarrant

That’s really the key, giving attention.

Sometimes people may be in pain, which is a signal that something needs attention.

Sometimes people feel stuck emotionally, for example, feeling anxiety before an important meeting.

Sometimes people simply need more resources to help them get through these extraordinary times.

Sometimes memories they’ve repressed emerge.

We work toward some kind of resolution, even if we don’t know what it is at first.

It could be feeling less pain.

It could be feeling some clarity about a situation.

It could be finding new images, even a vision, that gives someone courage and strength to move ahead.

It could be integrating traumatic memories from childhood with the resources of an adult.

However a distance session takes place, it’s always an adventure.
