Probably my Last Session
Describes what is probably my last craniosacral therapy session.

Had a session that I never published about last fall. It was with a different healer than the previous sessions, and I was so relieved when he didn't say anything during the actual craniosacral therapy part of the session! My other therapist was a chatty Kathy whom I just didn't connect with. It's like you're going through all these deep emotions, and you have to keep up with the conversation at the same time! It didn't work out for me.
I am female and though I have sought out female healers for different therapies in the past, I am beginning to appreciate having a male healer more and more. This healer was male....
The session was sort of uneventful but very relaxing, as usual. He worked on my head a little bit and was also drawn to work on my stomach, diaghragm, and the chest area over my heart. One thing that was also interesting was that I went through some "spontaneous unwinding" in the head/neck area as he was working on a different part of my body. My head and neck actually moved back and forth on their own.
I felt great after the session and had a brief breakthrough when I went to the grocery store and found myself being suddenly very open with my emotions and expressing generosity. It was unexpected, and the potential of the therapy really struck me after that.
Despite this, however, I will probably not be doing more craniosacral therapy (though I started out on a mission with it to get to the core of my emotional and physical issues). I read on a yahoo group about craniosacral therapy before I started the sessions back a couple years ago that craniosacral therapy can sometimes be problematic if the client does not integrate what is released. The people on that forum talked about people having problems during sessions with old health problems that had been overcome reappearing. For example, someone who had had seizures in the past but had gotten over them had a seizure during one of the sessions. There was a discussion there about this sort of thing. Although I had good results with craniosacral therapy, it certainly did not get to the bottom of my emotional issues/problems, and I wonder if it actually may have driven them deeper. Some days I feel like I have PTSD. I also found that the physical effects did not last, at least the most noticeable ones like increased flexibility and range of motion. Recently, I have found shamanism and now E.F.T. to be safer ways of releasing old emotions. Also, I plan to possibly work with a good chiropractor and do some Rolfing for physical issues. I think that all these therapies can together do the same thing as craniosacral therapy.
One thing I would recommend for anyone interested in doing craniosacral therapy is to find someone you connect with and feel comfortable with. This is really important to the success of the therapy, and it is something that I wish I had known or at least respected before I started. You're going to be getting into some old stuff and it can be an intense experience. It may take a few sessions to develop a rapport with your therapist, so that should perhaps be planned for.
