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.
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.
