Cranial Sacral Therapy

CranioSacral Therapy (CST) is a gentle, hands-on approach that releases tensions deep in the body to relieve pain and dysfunction and improve whole-body health and performance. It was pioneered and developed by Osteopathic Physician John E. Upledger after years of clinical testing and research at Michigan State University where he served as professor of biomechanics.

Using a soft touch which is generally no greater than 5 grams – about the weight of a nickel – practitioners release restrictions in the soft tissues that surround the central nervous system. CST is increasingly used as a preventive health measure for its ability to bolster resistance to disease, and it”s effective for a wide range of medical problems associated with pain and dysfunction.

Brennan Energy Healing Session

The relationship with your healer is an important part of the energy healing process. This relationship may take time to build as you get to know each other. As suppressed emotions or faulty belief systems are explored, or blocked energy is released, you will develop deeper understandings of what has been happening and contributing to your symptoms.

Sessions may last up to ninety minutes. After the session is complete, the healer will spend a short amount time with you processing the session. While it is understandable that you might have questions after a healing, generally it is advisable to keep this conversation to a minimum so that the healing can be fully held and integrated. Questions may be asked at a later time or at the next session. It takes some time to integrate a healing. It is not uncommon to have vivid dreams the evening of the healing or to have “ah-ha” moments in days following a healing as it integrates.

The BHS Practitioner may also work with your Hara Line or Core Star during the healing. The Hara Line is a deeper level of energy in your energy field; it is where you hold your intentions, life purpose, and life task. It is a line that runs from the center core of the earth, through your body, and above your head to where your essence enters your physical body. The Core Star, an even deeper level of reality, is your Divine essence; it is who you really are. It holds your unique qualities as a soul as well as who you are beyond your soul. Aligning your Hara Line, as well as healing different aspects of this line or Core Star, can result in a deeper connection with your soul’s purpose and life’s task.

Each person’s experience during the session is unique and will differ. There is nothing to “do” but just to receive. You may become deeply relaxed, have memories or physical sensations, see colors or experience emotions. Some people experience a deep meditative state or go to sleep. You may need to stay on the table for a few minutes after the healing before getting up to feel fully present again. It’s important not to rush this process.

Typically the BHS Practitioner will spend the first part of the session talking with you and learning about what you would like help with. If it is your first session, this amount of time may be longer than subsequent sessions. During this conversation, he or she is connecting with you energetically, actively listening to you and observing the energy patterns of the moment. Brennan healers have developed “high sense perception” and are able to see, feel, hear, know or smell at a higher level in order to receive spiritual guidance while they work with you.

During the interview process, the practitioner will ask you questions about your health. While BHS Practitioners are not doctors and therefore do not diagnose physical or mental illness or prescribe drugs, it is important that you share your health history with the practitioner. In doing so, the practitioner will have additional information about what is happening in your energy field and how to work with it.

Once the discussion is complete, you will lie down on a massage table, fully clothed and supported by pillows or blankets if necessary. Typically a BHS Practitioner will begin by giving you a chelation which starts at your feet and ends at your head. A chelation is an energy healing technique that clears, charges and balances your energy field and chakras. Even though BHS is hands on healing, it differs from massage therapy in that the practitioner’s touch is light. Some practitioners also work with your energy without having his or her hands on your body. During the chelation, the BHS Practitioner is aligned with the earth and higher consciousness as they have been taught to do, working with his or her own energy field to facilitate change in your energy field. Once the chelation is complete, the practitioner will focus on whatever is needed next in your healing, learned through years of training at BBHS. This work may include clearing trauma,  restructuring chakras, working with energetic relationship cords and many others.
