A magical touch therapy
By Dr Sandeep Bhasin
A gentle hands-on treatment, Craniosacral Therapy (CST) is used to balance the craniosacral rhythm and release the tensions in the body, thereby relieving pain and facilitating complete body healing. The craniosacral system consists of seven cranial bones, the spinal cord, vertebrae, sacrum, coccyx, dura mater, and cerebrospinal fluid. Any impediment to these structures leads to restriction of the craniosacral system, thereby causing various dysfunctions in the body. The pulsating of the craniosacral system at a rhythm of six to 12 cycles per minute forms the basis of this treatment. If the rhythm is of a very weak amplitude then it may mean low vitality, whereas if the rhythm is restricted on one side it might indicate some restriction on that particular side of the body. A therapist restores the rhythm with a very gentle touch.
Intrigue and eagerness to know more about the therapy led me to read the book Your Inner Physician and You by Dr John Upledger, which had amazing testimonials of some very complex cases resolved by CST. One of the testimonials was of a young boy—he needed crutches to walk and had to be fed through a Ryle’s tube—who responded excellently to a few sessions of CST. He could walk without crutches and also eat normally from the mouth after his treatment.
The book highlights the significance of cell memory. The records of difficult emotions and experiences are kept by the body in its tissues and cells. Encasement in a tissue or organ walled-off from the rest of the body leads to the formation of an energy cyst. Holding this disruptive energy in oblivion from the rest of the body ensures normal functioning of the body without disturbances. Determined to learn further, I finally learnt Dr John Upledger’s craniosacral balancing in a span of two years. I found for myself that all the muscular pains, aches, and disorders which had resisted every mode of treatment, started improving, and I was overjoyed to see the dramatic results a few sessions of CST had brought.
I treated a three-month-old baby for the first time with CST, and in three sessions the baby not only relaxed but had a full recovery from colic pain. A lady with a history of constant low back pain, relived the memory of having delivered a stillborn baby and spontaneously also recalled a past life wherein she had died in childbirth. As the pent-up grief and sorrow got released, she also resolved her backache. This incident cemented my trust in the concept that traumatic memories are stored in tissues and can be released. My shift in perception caused a greater shift in my patients’ reality. More of my patients started releasing their emotional burdens in CST sessions.
Craniosacral balancing is useful in treating headaches, migraines, lower back pain, asthma, anxiety, stress disorders, psychosomatic disorders, tinnitus, and autoimmune disorders.
