Craniosacral Therapy First Visit
In a Craniosacral therapy session your body has likely undergone some soft tissue releases and realignment, and needs time to become accustomed to this new posture. Avoid extreme exercise or activities that tax your energy and healing resources as you may be “recalibrating” and re-learning to move in a new neutral alignment with your body.
Do realize body chemicals and materials have dislodged within your system and toxins may have been released from storage. Your body is working to flush all toxins out and improve communications within your nerve system. By giving your body lots of water it can detoxify and improve the fluidity of communication within the body – so drink water liberally days afterward.
In the immediate days after treatment you may still be aware of your body processing the changes that began during your treatment. Often a new layer of awareness is surfacing and old symptoms may be stirred up. This should resolve shortly as you allow this cleansing process to complete itself.
If it is a young baby or child that has received treatment, remember that their sleeping patterns can change, and don’t be alarmed if they take a long nap, or sleep through the night if this isn’t typical. Like adults they are processing and can be temporarily more emotional. Feel free to call with any questions.
