Understanding What Pain Does…
Pain on a physical or emotional level causes us to go into protective mode. We seize up around our pain. Pain causes fragmentation, encapsulation, and our life force is drained to contain the suffering. This is a good thing for our system to do for a short time. It helps the suffering be less overwhelming. Yet, over the long haul, this way of dealing with pain is no longer helpful. We stop functioning at our maximal potential. We become less coherent on a quantum/energetic level, and this shapes our tissue/structure over time. We are all part energy, and part matter. The energy that breathes us is intelligent and directs all of our cells to do their job.
How does craniosacral help pain?
Craniosacral therapy supports a unified, coherent, mind-body field that helps us orient to health rather than suffering. On a daily basis the more still we become, (less active monkey mind), the more coherence occurs. The more coherence we have creates more access to our inherent health and higher intelligence. That is why it is important to have time in your life each day if only for a few minutes to increase a quiet mind and create more energetic coherence.
Illness begins on any level of health:
Chemical= nutritional imbalances and toxins from air, water, and food
Structural= Imbalances in our structure (especially along the spine) can affect sympathetic nerves that influence our organs, lymphatics, blood supply, and nerves of the musculoskeletal system. This depletes our body’s energy to maintain optimal posture.
Energetic= this can be chronic exposure to EMF’s from: cell phones, wifi, etc…
Emotional= especially early events have a strong imprint on our neurochemical habits and pathways affecting our brain and entire cellular matrix. This is a huge part of health and wellness. Learning to work with emotional self regulation is optimal to staying healthy.
Craniosacral helps with the overall coherence of the body to increase health. In combination with this powerful work I also check the layers above and treat and refer accordingly. Often people need support on more than one layer at a time. My goal is to help them figure out where the health issue is coming from. Symptoms are not always where you would think they are coming from. Chinese medicine is 5000 years old and clearly states that. I will point you in the best direction for the quickest healing. When someone comes in with symptoms that persist, after getting treatments from other practitioners that is a flag for me that the kind of treatment was done well, but did not target the core problem. With chronic pain there is usually a perfect storm with pieces of a puzzle that brought their system out of coherence.
Fritz Popp speaks of coherence, and has studied health with respect to biophotons. He is a German Physicist: http://www.biontologyarizona.com/dr-fritz-albert-popp/

Forgiveness, how we can get all of our energy back.
Holding grudges keeps your life force energy bound up in the past.
It affects your health in many negative ways, and can be the root of a disease process. This is one of the most obvious reasons to forgive: for your health and happiness. Forgiving is not the same as forgetting. Forgiving is letting go of bitterness and resentment, and changing your relationship to what happened. By changing how you carry and connect with what disturbed you, you are able to move on with your energy and reclaim your life force. Forgiveness is not rooted in making the person who judged, abused, or hurt you change. Forgiveness is acknowledging the pain and suffering you feel. Wouldn’t you like to have all of the energy that is meant for your body to be there to support your cellular function? Sometimes forgiving needs to be done on a regular basis to train our mind to not get stuck on the resentment or bitterness “radio station”.
Resentments are literally held in the tissue: the spiritual, emotional, physical, and mental body. In the long haul grudges end up hurting the people who harbor them.
Here are some quotes from Carolyn Myss to inspire you:
"When we harbor negative emotions toward others or toward ourselves,
or when we intentionally create pain for others,
we poison our own physical and spiritual systems.
By far the strongest poison to the human spirit
is the inability to forgive oneself or another person.
It disables a person's emotional resources.
The challenge is to refine our capacity to love others as well as ourselves
and to develop the power of forgiveness.”
"Forgiveness is no longer an option
but a necessity for healing."
"The soul always knows what to do to heal itself.
The challenge is to silence the mind."
