Welcome to Peace Through Healing
The CranioSacral Therapy / Somato-Emotional Release Practice of Emily Klik
CranioSacral therapy is a form of bodywork uses gentle touch (0-20 grams of pressure), low velocity (slow) manipulations, and focused intention to improve central nervous system function, alleviate the variable effects of stress and relieve pain. In most sessions, whether the symptoms are physical or emotional (or both) in nature... the client experiences a reduction (or elimination) in pain, reduction in stress, and a sense of profound inner peace.
Somato-Emotional Release gently and compassionately facilitates the release of emotionally-charged energy (aka "energy cysts") from connective tissue. These 'energy cysts' can be stored in your body for some time (sometimes decades) following a traumatic incident, usually resulting from the body's incomplete attempt to process the emotional aspect of the traumatic incident. This energy is foreign to the connective tissue/body in which it resides. By providing these 'energy cysts' a space of love, resolution, validation and healing... your deep emotional wounds can be gently transformed, released and healed.
How It Works
As living organisms, we are mostly fluid (60-70% by volume), and the optimal flow of all fluids through our connective tissue is vital to our optimal performance. When we are injured, the flow of fluid, movement, and function is interrupted or impeded. With gentle touch, CranioSacral therapy focuses upon optimizing the position, fluid flow and energy (or "chi") in our body, especially the cerebro-spinal fluid found in our craniosacral system (aka the sub-dural space between the skull/vertebrae and brain/spinal cord respectively). By releasing stress and trauma from connective tissue and organs, our body is able to restore proper fluid flow, restore proper alignment of connective tissue and supportive structures, and improve overall well-being. Most treatments produce an immediate decrease in pain, and increase in range of motion by the end of each therapy session.
What to Expect: Clients wear loose-fitting clothing and lie face-up on a comfortable extra-padded massage table. During the hour-long treatment, Emily's client usually enters a deep state of relaxation. There is a sense of physical "unwinding" in connective tissue as structures (such as fascia, tendons, ligaments and muscle tissues) release. Emotional responses may come up and released in this safe nurturing environment.
