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.

Free consultation for TMJ issues

I’m please to announce I’ve added a new service. If you have jaw pain or dysfunction and are wondering if I can do anything for you, please schedule a free 30-minute consultation.

A lot of people, including dentists, are not aware that appropriately trained massage therapists can work on relieving your TMJ issues that are due to muscle tension or trauma. 

Screen Shot 2018-05-30 at 8.44.49 PMI’ll ask about your symptoms and your history. I’ll also evaluate your body, including your neck and jaw.

Then we can talk about treatment options. If you’ve never had manual therapy for jaw pain and dysfunction, or if you’ve received it previously from a different practitioner, I’ll be happy to tell you what a typical session is like and the typical progression if you are curious about buying a series of sessions.

Please note: What I find once I start working and how well your system responds are variable with bodywork.

I’ve been doing TMJ Relief sessions since 2013. My teacher was Ryan Hallford of the Craniosacral Resource Center in Southlake, TX. I’ve taken his cranial base/TMJ class twice and been a teaching assistant for it when Christian Current taught. In addition, I’ve studied craniosacral therapy with the Upledger Institute.

Most recently, I studied TMJ Mastery in London, Ontario, with John Corry, a massage therapist and teacher with 26 years of experience working with TMJ issues.

Please let me know if you have any questions, and don’t hesitate to read the testimonials on my What People Are Saying page.
