Once someone experiences Craniosacral, it’s very difficult to not want to go back and receive more of the work. The benefit of Craniosacral Therapy is that it works with the whole body. As an athlete you can come in for a session and know your body is going to direct the therapist to the exact area or areas that need the work most. Receiving Craniosacral work can help athletes recover faster and get back in the game sooner. It allows you to really deepen in your body awareness, which is critical for an athlete to be able to tune into the body. Craniosacral can be injury preventative by way of keeping the soft tissues in a state of health and expansiveness. It can also help the athlete to be more centered and focused, and “on point” to concentrate on the game. It can help increase range of motion, while decreasing joint pain and inflammation. In general it helps the athlete to be more in tune with his or her body while keeping injury causing restrictions at bay.

Sports Injury Recovery
In unraveling chronic (and acute) health imbalances, often complex layers of injury and trauma, mask the original cause of the problem. Many therapies today address symptoms, but don’t often strive to address the cause. A Biodynamic Craniosacral session works to address the cause and can help achieve balance by reorienting your body to your primary health, available beneath the current imbalance. Biodynamic Craniosacral can be particularly beneficial when recovering from a concussion, whiplash, strain, sprain, joint issues, restrictions, and limiting belief systems, as well as other sports related injuries. It can also be beneficial for injury prevention as it helps soft tissues to stay soft, rather than tight and dense which creates the potential for injury. It can help to circulate blood flow which is beneficial for healing. Because it supports the Central Nervous System (CNS) it also supports healthy immune function, balance and coordination, body awareness, & mental clarity which is important to maintain during training as well as competition.
