Craniosacral Therapy is a restorative therapy that uses very light touch to help equalize various systems of the body, such as: bones, nerves, fluids, and connective tissues of the skull and spinal area.
A therapist trained in Cranial Sacral therapy can help induce a “still point”. A still point is a technique used to gently pause the craniosacral fluid’s movement.This pause causes a brief build up of the fluid for an instant. When the tissues are released and the fluid starts to flow again, it creates a flushing effect in the system, which slightly stretches the membranes, and it can ultimately free tissue restrictions. The therapist holds the client’s occiput in their hand using the still point hand position shown below.
There are also tools that can be purchased and used to self induce a still point.
Or you can make one yourself very simply by putting a couple of tennis balls in a sock. Tightly knot the sock so that there is no space between the two tennis balls.
Lie on your back and then place the two tennis balls on either side of that little bump on the back of your head (the occipital protuberance). Let the weight of your head settle onto the tennis balls. Close your eyes and relax for 10-15 minutes. This may be done up to four times daily.
Create your own sock/tennis balls stillpoint inducer and try this three times and give us some feedback.

When the class did the cranialsacral therapy, it was new to me and really difficult to feel the pulse in the head, but I know overtime this will help me in the future! Looking forward to learning more 🙂
This was a really neat things Ross showed us it was a lot like the Crainal Sacral Therpy we did a few weeks ago.
I was first very skeptic about cranial sacral therapy the first time we were shown. I didn’t see how it could possibly work because it’s like you aren’t even doing anything. The second time we were shown a cranial sacral technique during our lab demo was by Ross and Sharon. This second time was different for me. I think I got a better understanding from it because we were individually shown how to hold our hands. By using both the cranial sacral tecnique we were shown, as well as using our own homeade device, they both give you the same overall feeling. When having this technique done to you or done by a device you have to be relaxed. The results recieved from both ways put me in a somewhat euphoric state. Almost like I had just woken up from the best sleep of my life and my body was still feeling that good achey feeling. Thanks for instructions on how to make our own still point inducer!
I really like the craniosacral therapy but I have yet to find a good feel for it. I know that with a little bit more practice I will get the rhythm of it.
THis week is my first week. So to see this procedure on my first day was exciting because it is something I can do at home and to start practicing early.
I really like the craniosacral therapy but I have yet to feel any rhythms.I know that with more practice and concentration I will be able to get a feel for it.
I’ve been practicing the cranialsacral therapy on clients during facial treatments. I’m trying to sharpen my senses and tune in to sensing the tides. Still work in progress for me, but the result is always the same for the client, which total relaxation. I’m so interested in this modality bacause of the profound difference it seems to have on my instructor. I’ve also devised a tool (tennis balls & sock) and i’m working on creating stillpoints for myself.
I haven’t experienced this technique yet, but I am excited to try it. The technique looks like it would be helpful for the tightness in neck and shoulders.
As the second time with being shown cranial sacral therapy I understood it alot better. I actually felt like I felt something but i was unsure. I love learning and love being able to do most of these at home on myself,too.
I have had the craniosacral introduced to me twice since started here and at first was a little skeptical about if this really worked or if it was just something to pass time and get clients money. I can actually say though after having many headaches and then again trying this the second time everything seemed to be releasing itself. So I am glad to know that I can do this on my own with the tennis balls. Thanks for the tip.
I like the craniosacral therapy. I like to recieve more of this therapy so I can really see the full effects it can do. When performing this I think I felt the rhythm but was question myself because I didn’t know for sure because I haven’t done it more than maybe a couple of time. Would like to learn more about it.
Pretty different. I could not tell much during the demonstration but could at home. It was very nice to try something new like this.
I have performed this onmyself and my husband. My husband was way more skeptical than I was because I have had a small cranio sacral session done before. I told hi it would make him feel drunk and he didn’t beleive me until I did it to him. I had kindof a light headed feeling but nothing like what he experienced.
I think it is crucial to try this a few times. And also be still for long enough because for me it felt very uncomfortable and awkward the first time. But tried again and it was very relaxing. Good stuff.
I love cranial sacral, I can’t wait to go to the next workshop. I use 2 of those firm spongy balls, it was relaxing.
When we did this in class i felt so great afterward! I need to practice so i can get better at feeling the rhythm but I know it can make someone feel amazing!
The still point thing is really cool. Kind of like a toilet flush. I didnt realize that. I love it
I really like this. I definitely want to learn more about it. I did this on my husband and told him he might feel a little woozy or slight drunkness…which he did. I used tennis balls and a sock for the sill points.
Still points I love it. This is my second time around with craniosacral therapy. The more I see, the more I like. The idea of being able to reset your body is wonderful.
I had never heard of cranial sacral massage, Ross came in and showed the evening class a short demonstration. He used words like “in a trance” and “comparable to being drunk” two things I very much enjoy. It’s a very odd sensation, both with someone doing it and the still point ball and sock contraption. It’s absurdly relaxing and I’m looking into taking a class on it. i love it!
I don’t have any tennis balls or anything tennis ball-like at my home so I’m gonna have to do this over the weekend. I’ve really enjoyed the cranial sacral demos we have had so far!
I think this is something that you should definitely try more than once. The first time I tried it at home I didn’t really feel any thing, but the more I try it the more I’m starting to feel the tides and notice a difference after I’m done.
When we did this for the first time I was pretty skeptical about this. I wasn’t holding my hands correctly and it didn’t feel right at all! My hands were sore & just felt awkward. But the second time I tried it in class I had my hands in the correct position & it felt so much more natural! As far as it making me feel any different having it done to me, it doesn’t really do anything. I think once I’ve learned a little more about it & practiced it more that I will get it though!
I absolutely love STILL POINT! It needs to be held for a minimum of 5 minutes i think, so the client can sink into it and really get results from this. i used two tennis balls and at first it seems incredibly stiff and hard but as the client sinks into you realize the firmness is needed and the size is perfect. Love this and love that I have one so I can do it on myself at home! Thanks for the information.
The first time i did this, it was amazing. I have never felt anything like it before. but afterwards, it gave me a headache. then the second time i did this, i felt nothing at all. so i take it i did something wrong. but the 3rd time i tried it,once again, i felt nothing. i used the resources i had, which was a sock and 2 stuffed animals. but i don’t know what i did that i couldn’t get totally relaxed like the first time.
It is amazing how suddle the effects of cranial sacral therapy can be. The movements are so subtle that you aren’t sure if it is working or not at first. When you feel the wave of the cerebral spinal fluid gently pulse in and out, and then reset it, it is totally awesome. Sharon performed this treatment on me Tuesday, and I am a true believer now! I look forward to attending a workshop on this so I can offer my clients the same reward I received.
The first time in class that we was shown the craniosacral i was doubtful. The second time I did it it felt like a tide come through them and was a very surprising feeling. I have been doing this randomly with other students and am very interested in this procedure. I want to study on this more and learn all I can about it.
I have used a similar technique in my massage routine, and also incorporate the attachment site of the scalenes at the occiput. Reports have been favorable!
I believe we are going to do this technique next week. I do not have tennis balls so honestly did not try it. Looking forward to my system being flushed!
The first time I tried this it was a little uncomfortable, my muscles and fascia are very tight in these areas. Once I was able to relax and let the balls do what they were meant to do it started to feel better. I am really looking forward to learning more about this type of modality. I am definitely ready to get rid of that stress I have been carrying in those areas.
My mom does the self inducing one for head aches!!! I am excited to learn more about this in class this week!!! I will also try it on myself this weekend
Did not know about this. Never even heard of this. I have to look up more about it. I want to know more benefits for doing this and give it a try.
When we did the first hold at the ankles I felt a pulse that I thought was my own but found out this was the slow movement of the client’s fluid. I also felt a strong heartbeat sensation when we did the occipitals but also found out this was the rhythm of the fluid fluctuating in and out. Thanks for not taking pics of the pelvic one for facebook.
Craniosacral therapy is very interesting and after the lab demo today I was impressed! I haven’t tried the self-inducing technique because I’ve never heard of it and never tried it but it’s really neat how you can make it with 2 tennis balls and a sock. That’s very inexpensive and I want to learn more in continuing education.
I tried this exercise but with hard rubber squishy balls I acheived the same affects. It felt good!
When doing this in class my back felt like it was cramping then when I had my head done I got a headache but afterwords my head and back felt better. I am gonna try the tennis ball and see if that works for me.
vary interesting, ill have to get some tennis balls and try this.
When I first tried this exercise I was pretty skeptical amd wasn’t quite sure what to expect ? After a couple of re-positioning and more profound relaxation I found this to be moderately relaxing and refereshing. I’m sure it would be much better with a real person instead of a ball of socks.
I enjoyed doing the Craniosacral in lab yesterday. The still point technique felt very good and I look forward to learning more about this type of work. I hope you get to start a Craniosacral course here a CCC because I would love to take the course.
The tennis ball idea sounds amazing, can’t wait to get home and try that! Doing this skill in class yesterday was very relaxing, my partner was able to put me into 2 still points through out the whole demo
I first heard of Craniosacral Therapy on YouTube (where I’ve heard of most therapies). There is a lady named Athena Jezik that practices down in Austin, Texas. I have watched her treat people with this modality and it was always interesting to me how such a light pressure could cure treat even large problems. I am interested in learning more and taking the class that Ross was telling us about during the demonstration. It also interested me to hear that it could help Alzheimer’s patients.
I find this modality both fascinating and intimidating. The potential benefits of such light pressure are amazing. However, the sensitivity and patience required for the learning and practice of this modality is, as mentioned, intimidating. I’m looking forward to learning more and also to trying out the tennis ball tool to induce a still point. Thanks for another great article!!
After reading everyone’s commits, I’m like what am I missing! I went into this therapy with an open mind…..wanting to learn something new. Didn’t feel jack…so what’s the deal? Everyone else as this wonderful energy flow? Get real. Be Honest……But Ross I am going to try the experiment with the tennis balls…..I will keep you updated.
I have to say trying the exercise with the tennis balls the first time it actually hurt and found it hard to lay there for 10-15mins. The next time I tried the exercise it actually didn’t hurt as much and felt relaxing. The last attempt felt great and actually I felt more energetic after the exercise this was a great idea and I plan on continuing with this exercise 3 times a day from now on oh and great article.
I would really like to try the Craniosacral Therapy for me. Because I do feel some little knots on the back of my head.
This is very interesting! I have never head of it before. I think it’s very cool that you can make your own with two tennis balls and a sock!
I can’t wait to try craniosacral therapy! It is actually one of the many areas that I am interested in mastering. I haven’t tried the tennis ball exercise, but I plan to this week. It amazes me that this type of knowledge has been around, and so many people are unaware of its existence and how it could potentially benefit them. One would think, if people have been practicing these arts for years, that there must be some factual/scientific basis. I think that all therapies should be taken into consideration, especially when they have science to back them up. I can’t wait to learn these techniques this week.
I tried the tennis balls in the sock, and I just cant sit still like that for too long because it is just way too uncomfortable.
I tried the tennis balls in the sock, and I just cant sit still like that for too long because it is just too uncomfortable.
I am interested in trying this technique for myself. It seems odd, the blocking of fluid but I would still try it.
When I first heard about this I was pretty skeptical but when i gave it a try it felt really nice.
When I first heard about this I was pretty skeptical but when i gave it a try it felt really great. i would highly recomend trying this.
Wow that is awesome I had no idea about the tennis balls. The therapy seems so easy to do and very effective. Love to learn about the different modalities. Thanks for the blog
I had heard of craniosacral therapy before, but had never really known what it was. In the lab demo, I found it hard to feel the pulse of the fascia in the feet and legs. When we got up to the shoulders and back of the neck, I thought I might of felt something a few different times but I still could not pin point a cycle or sequence. I am very anxious to learn more about the modality and I am also interested in becoming certified or licensed in the practice.
I have to admit that I was very skeptical when I first heard about Craniosacral Therapy, but the Lab Demo today proved my assumptions were incorrect. I didn’t feel anything at first, but the third time I searched for the flow of my client (when we were at the shoulders) I found it. It does take a lot of concentration, but it is absolutely astounding. Maggie and I felt it at the same time, which was really cool.
I knew NOTHING about craniosacral therapy before this unit. I am so intrigued, but definitely require more practice before being able to consistently being able to feel, much less manipulate the CSF fluid and its flow throughout the body!
I was very intrigued to learn this on my first day of class because I didn’t even know it existed. I look forward to learning more.
At first i wasnt really sure about this therapy i didnt understand the purpose or how to do it. Yesterday we tried this technique in lab and i felt the movement in my clients neck. It was very interesting how the movement and placement of our hands could cause such a change we were told to use our imaginations and our sense of touch to find aggravations in the body it was a very interesting demonstration iam now a believer in craniosacral therapy and would be interested to use this in my practice.
Matt and I did this yesterday and I was in tuned with his breaths. I have found a class in KC to take should be fun.
Before we did this in class i new knew what cranisacral therapy was until we did it in class it felt really good but i like more pressure tho.
At first I didn’t see how only 5 grams of pressure would do anything. On the receiving end of the demo it only confirmed this for me. That is until I went to my partner and practiced on him. I felt this slow pulse almost immediatly at the ankles and thighs, it took a lot longer to feel it by the neck but eventually I was able to distinguish it from my partners heartbeat and breath. My favorite part however was manipulating the sacrum. I loved feeling it move in my hand with only the slight touch I was able to make it release. I can’t wait to experiment with it more.
We did this in class yesterday and it was pretty neat even though the positions were kinda awkward.
I have read that Craniosacral Therapy is being used a lot more on young children to help with head aches. just thought that was interesting. When i go home today im going to try the tennis balls & sock tech. I just want lay down on the floor and allow my self to relax. I want to know if i can feel my own cerebralspinal fluid flowing through my body.
I am very interested in the Craniosacral Therapy and am looking forward to this weeks Demonstrations. I am always excited to learn new things
Im a little amazed that something with such a light touch can make a difference in helping to equalize bones, nerves, fluids, and connective tissues of the skull and spinal area.
I found the homemade device to be very inventive. I am a penny pincher, and to be able to make a device that works as effectively as a name brand product was very cool. I can’t wait to see how this works!
I didn’t feel much effect from this-i wonder if im doing it right…
Sharon, You asked me to do the tennis ball and the sock before you would give me credit for this blog. I tried it I now have a spliting headache. It was not a pleasurable experiance at all.
This is so cool! I can’t wait to learn more about it in class. That still point technique sounds really cool!
I wasn’t so sure about this therapy but I did go in it with an open mind and It wasn’t quite what I thought it was but the positions were a bit different but pretty cool
When I performed this on my instructor, I could really feel the pulse in the sacrum. It took me a little bit to understand the correct amount of pressure to use in the stretches though.
This was a neat technique!
Seems like a simple thing to do for yourself and for others. One thing I will have to try out soon!
I have had a chance to try this and it is actually really cool. I cant wait to learn more about it
We did this with Mr. Ashcraft and it was a very strange sensation. I would like to try it again sometime.
I’ve had a chance to do this but because of a broken tailbone, I DON’T LIKE IT and unfortunately, due to past concussion, any pressure to my head gives me headaches. Other than that, I have no problem performing this on other people.
It sounds pretty cool, I cant wait to learn it!
Well this is actually something awesome. I do wish this blog had the massage techniques iterated in it. Tho, the tennis ball idea is pretty unique, cheap, and effective. I’m going to have to try this when I’m home tonight.
I had a doctor that performed this on me, I didn’t know what he was doing. It gave me a cool sensation, I’ve had it done twice, both times gave me a kind of freeing sensation in my head and neck. It’s a very odd technique but effective, I think.
I have never heard of this and am looking forward to learning it and trying it.
I find craniosacral therapy to be very interesting. I have had it performed on my by an LMT that I work with. It felt wonderful. I had a difficult time feeling the pulse and flow in lab this morning though. It is definitely a modality that I would like to learn more about and become proficient in.
When we did the cranialsacral thereapy I didnt really feel a change myself but my client said that they felt the change and when it was done to me I didnt really slow down myself and become calm and still but it did feel good.
really different,I could not tell a difference much during the demonstration but I think i will get better at it. it was nice to learn something new.
This is interesting modality, I like that the therapist can be lazy and at the same time really make a profound difference in some ones health. Ross mentioned that Alzheimers patients can really be affected by the cranial technique. The increase of spinal fluid was a fascinating aspect of this gentle pressure technique.
have the cranial experiment done on me was definitely a different experiment. But I will say it left me in a daze and half brain dead:)
I have been looking forward to this week for a while! The demo we did made my whole face go numb, it was weird but I liked it! Can’t wait to do more later this week
I LOVED the feeling this technique gave me when it was demonstrated to the class by Ross. It made me relax and very sleepy. Coming from someone with insomnia issues, I am going to have to make my own device like suggested in this blog and do it nightly.
I so desperately need a still point inducer! That would relieve a lot of stress I’ve been dealing with lately! I should probably tell my sister about this too…..she’s only 22 and has had chronic migraines since she was about 14.
This modality is defiantly one of my favorites. Something so simple and easy and it feels awesome.
After attending the lab for craniosacral I noticed I was able to go into a still state. my client wasn’t able to and I don’t know if it was a lack of my technique but I would like to practice this again and extend my knowledge of this therapy!
I liked the cranial sacrum therapy but I don’t feel the energy that you are supposed to feel.
I think it’s pretty cool that we can use things like tennis balls to help with therapy. I haven’t tried it yet but I’m looking forward to this weeks class. Craniosacral may be something I want to specialize in.
I really look forward to trying this during my career who knows I might use it more for myself this information helped me to realize there are several forms to use in our massage therapy profession.
I have never heard of the stillpoint before and I tried this method yesterday and loved it! I will definitely be adding it to my regimen!
I am looking forward to the craniosacral demonstration in class this week. I did the tennis ball thing three times. I’m a little confused because lying on two tennis balls with your head seems to me to be using a lot of pressure whereas this technique is supposed to use such light pressure. The activity assigned reminded me of the foam roller exercises we’ve done on Thursdays. It feels like my neck has been massaged or stretched really well, and that my ROM has been enhanced -an overall better feeling in my neck. Not sure I grasp the stillpoint idea. However, I can picture what a dam does to water and what happens when the dam is let loose. With that in mind, I can visualize a flushing of debris or a cleansing if you will.
I am very interested in this technique. I can see the benefit that it can have in my own life. I can’t wait to do it in class.

I am very interested in this technique. I can see the benefit that it can have in my own life. I can’t wait to do it in class.
I was surprised to learn a lot of things on this subject. There are 10 steps in a typical session. You should only use 5 grams of pressure. The cerebrospinal fluid is a shock absorber and a nutrient bath. The facia is an uninterrupted three dimensional web of tissue that covers the body head to toe, front to back, in and out! Membranes of the spinal fluid have its own pulse. A typical craiosracral session is an hour long.
Seems very simple, I bet this will solve a lot of headache problems too!!!
The tennis balls tied up in the sock is a cool idea.
I haven’t had work done on my cranium besides face and scalp massage, which I am sure certainly exceeds the 5 grams of pressure that is supposed to be used during craniosacral massage.
Though I suppose laying a human skull on tennis balls does as well, so perhaps it is a different classification of cranial work.
I was very surprised when learned how many steps there were to this process iam very excited to learn more on how it is done in class and who knows maybe in the future I maybe able to suggest it to one of my clients.
I find this blog and modality to be very interesting. I have heard craniosacral therapy mentioned several times in class since I started. I have always found that I have an interest in it and am very excited to see how it works. I was going to try the tennis ball method that was shown in the blog but I don’t have any on hand. I really look forward to seeing a demonstration of this therapy in class this week!
Cranial sacral therapy seems like it can be a very effective modality especially being that it is supposed to be a light and soft touch. There are a lot of people that prefer having that lighter touch than something with more pressure. I’ve tried to find the right area to place my hands on my clients occipital a to release the tension and I don’t believe that I’m doing it correctly, but seeing how the hand position is, in this blog, I believe that I’ll have better results.
I look forward to trying this technique in class this week. I think this will help me a lot with my neck problems and headaches. It’s something I can do at home for myself. If I like it I can use it in my practice.
This is very interesting to me because I have a lot of pain in that areas. I literally just put tennis ball on my list, I think I can mange to find a sock. This is so cool to me because you could have your clients do this at home.
I didn’t actually do it because I don’t have any tennis balls, but knowing this technique is very helpful for others and myself for the tightness in our neck and shoulder. Being able to do it on myself is great because we will be so busy giving massage to others that we forget about own health . I am thinking about buying two tennis ball and put it in my daily routine . I think it’s great how it has a still point that gently pause the craniosacral fluid. I will do this.
It’s my first week attending Ms Sharon’s class and the cranial sacral therapy seems to have wide range of positive effects on the nerves, bones, fluids and connective tissues. When you create a “still point” , how exactly does it flush these systems? I experimented on my boyfriend, he said it relieved some tension in his neck and he felt a slightly dizzy. His headache also when away. I must have slightly stretched the membranes and freed the restrictions on his tissues you talked about. Cause, I didn’t even tell him what he was suppose to feel before I performed the still point.
I would love to learn Cranio Sacral Therapy, it seems very simple and not hard to learn. I google more info about cranio sacral therapy and it said that cranio sacral therapy helps with migraines and headaches, also with neck and back pain and many, many more. How many people do all of us know with at least one of the problem if not all for, just think of how much that person will love you if you help them reduce a pain at least by a little bit.
This was pretty cool to read about and how to make one of your own using tennis balls and a sock but i am not sure how it would feel i probably wont do this method till i have it done to me that way i know what i should be doing for my clients
Sounds interesting I can not wait to learn this new technique.
I’m so excited that we’re finally learning about this, I’ve been waiting for it! Looking forward to our in class demo this week:)
Experiencing crainiosacral therapy for the first time in class made me extremely anxious to try and see if it is something that works for me, and made me really interested to learn more. I was able try out the still point inducer in class today, and how I can see it to be useful for someone who can not see a therapist and needs this done on a normal basis, I prefer a therapist. I think the tools seem cold, and definitely not as comfortable.
I thought this was a very relaxing technique. I could feel the pressure being released and it was just a very relaxing experience. This could also be a very beneficial technique for people with a lot of tension headaches I think.
It is a interesting modality but I’m not quite sold on it yet. I couldn’t really feel much change going on.
I have a history of severe migraines and still suffer from chronic cluster headaches, this will be interesting to try!
This modality will be useful both with my aesthetics as well as my massage clients. I really look forward to their feedback!
This sounds like a simple thing to do at home. I can’t wait till we get to do this in class!
When I went for physical therapy for my back my therapist suggested I use the tennis balls for my back and it sure helped when I did my exercises. I am yet to try it on my neck but I am sure it will work great as well.
I used the two tennis balls tied in a sock. It was so very relaxing for me. I will do this again soon.
Definitely an interesting thing to learn the first day of class. I’ll admit I didn’t feel anything or at least I don’t think I did but it would be worth the effort to learn.
I am very interested in how craniosacral is said to help with Alzheimer disease. The tennis balls seem like a helpful homemade tool. I may try it.
I haven’t gotten the opportunity to see this modality in action but from this blog it seems really interesting and different so I can’t wait to learn more about it and even feel it’s affects!
Craniolsacral therapy is an interesting concept. I enjoyed the non invasive way of looking at problems. It seems like a good added tool.
This seems like a very good technique and I think the stretch with the tennis balls would feel really good.
Pretty interesting, I will have to try it out to see what happens.
I’m looking forward to trying this technique. I think it would be very relaxing.
This sounds interesting and I’m looking forward to trying this.
I’ve never heard of this modality before, I’m looking forward to the demonstration.
I’ve had this done before and I loved it.
these techniques look intriguing and I look forward to work with them.
I am really enjoying learning about these new techniques. It is cool that we can try this with a still point tool to flush the body.
This type of therapy seems very beneficial and I would definitely recommend this to everyone!
This is interesting that such a light touch can induce such healing.
This sounds interesting and I’m looking forward to trying this.
i had the opportunity to view and demonstrate this form today and it was very interesting.
Had this done to me in class. I felt so relaxed that I almost fell asleep! Can’t wait to actually try it on someone else.
I thought this was interesting to try in class. I’m not certain how clearly I felt the pulse that the instructor spoke about, and I would like to try it again as well as try receiving it. I’m curious what I would feel on the receiving end. I’d like to try the tennis ball method.
I am going to try the tennis balls in a sock and see how I feel. I want to learn more about craniosacral therapy and still points. The idea seems sound, but I want to actually feel it in practice. I have some difficulty getting out of my head to “see” with my fingers. Hopefully this will come somewhat easily.
I made my tennis balls tied up in a sock a couple of days ago. I tried this today and i felt a slight flushing which was great. I will definatly try this again.
I haven’t experience this technique yet, but I would let you no how the sock/tennis ball feel when I do it
Had a chance to practice craniolscaral it was interesting how just keeping your hands on sertain areas relaxs client, also being able to feel the energy traveling through the body, and would like to know more.
I think this could also be added to a neck massage when the client is prone, it would give a great added benefit to a neck massage.
I love this and I have going to make a couple of them. I wont be using a sock though. I plan to put it under the neck while I and working the legs. and arms by the time I am done with those It will have been 15 min and I can then do the neck.
This seems interesting. I do believe i will try this on myself
Seems legit, I feel like this has been done to me but I was too asleep to remember.
I have quite a bit of neck pain and headaches, so I am wondering if this therapy would be beneficial to clients with similar ailments. I’ll give it a try this week when I get home and update you guys!
I have not experienced this technic ,but it could help with a lot of different problems , because i see an opening of the communication through the spine .
I really want to try this out, I have a lot of tension in my head.
Very interesting to read, can’t wait to try it at home!
Sounds like a great way to relieve stress. Can’t wait to try it.
I just recently started in massage at clary sage! I have to say this is by far my favorite modality. It not only helps your client it benefits the therapist in many different ways. I will definitely be incorporating this in my practice.
I thinks it’s a great way to encourage relaxation for client and therapist.
I can’t wait to try this out!
It’s something i want to look more in to.
