This is not combining treatment per se, but acknowledging and understanding cranial rhythms to create a better Bowen session by being more suitably informed.
Health is the expression of life – an inherent and natural internal intelligence. Craniosacral Therapy is a subtle and profound healing form.
Around the turn of the last century intrinsic movements of the bones of the skull were discovered by Dr William Sutherland, an American osteopath. His further research revealed different rhythmic tidal motions in the body. As research continued it became apparent that these movements are inextricably linked with not only physical health but also mental and emotional wellbeing. Palpation of these tide – like motions allow therapists to facilitate change in areas of restriction.
The story of our history is held in our physical form. An integral part of this work is the patient’s developing awareness of how their story is held, that is it held and what they can do to release themselves from old holding patterns that no longer serve them. The Therapy is so gentle that it is suitable for babies, children, and the elderly, as well as adults; and also in fragile or acutely painful conditions. The work can be profoundly relaxing, exhilarating, deeply moving or involve a resolution of old holding patterns.
This is a hands on Bowen course with the added advantage of it being taught by a highly experienced Bowen Tutor who is also a cranial sacral therapist.
The benefits of taking this course will include detailed instruction on palpation for cranial rhythms and how and when influencing the body from a cranial perspective is useful within a Bowen treatment.
