"Most amazing services offered here. If you have a physical or mental discomfort, condition, or illness, I recommend this place. You will have a transformation by walking through the doors and onto the table of a highly skilled therapist."
The Upledger Institute Clinic welcomes all new clients and offers appointments lasting from 45 minutes to an hour, which take place in a quiet, private setting. As a client you remain fully clothed as you relax on a comfortable, padded massage table. The practitioner will stand or sit positioned at various points of your head, torso or feet. At times your practitioner may also support your limbs and spine while helping your body release accumulated tension.
What you experience during a CranioSacral Therapy (CST) session is highly individual. Some people say they feel deeply relaxed, while others describe feeling unwinding sensations as the body releases tension. You may even recall circumstances surrounding a past trauma or injury that caused your body stress. While it doesn't occur in every session, this aspect of the process – called SomatoEmotional Release – is perfectly normal, and helps the body reverse dysfunction and restore optimal levels of mobility.
Because each individual response to CST is unique, the number of sessions needed to resolve any particular condition varies. While one session may give you the relief you need, your condition may require more therapy before its completely alleviated. Your therapist can advise you forward.
* IMPORTANT *
If you, or your physician, have a known or suspected concern regarding changes in your intra-cranial pressure (such as, recent or acute stroke, cerebral hemorrhage, aneurysm, skull fracture, epidural leaks, Arnold Chiari Malformation etc.), please contact the Upledger Institute Clinic and ask for a therapist to discuss your condition with you before scheduling any CST sessions or an intensive program.
