How does EM-CST work?
Everyday your body endures stresses and strains that it must work to compensate for or integrate. Sometimes these conditions can cause body tissues to tighten and distort the craniosacral system. These distortions can then cause tension to form around the brain and spinal cord resulting in constrictions. This can create a bit of a hurdle for the healthy functioning of the central nervous system, and potentially every other system it interacts with.
Fortunately, such constrictions can be loosened or unwound using simple, gentle methods of touch. With a light touch equivalent to the weight of a nickle, we can evaluate the craniosacral system and gently assess at various locations on the body the ease of motion and rhythm within the cerebrospinal fluid pulsing around the brain and spinal cord. Through balancing and normalizing of the environment around the brain and spinal cord, changes in the rate and rhythm can then inform the fascia, nerves, and fluid matrix which feeds all the cells of the whole body. This in turn enhances the body’s ability to self-correct and heal.
Sessions are very relaxing as you lay on a comfortable, extra padded massage table, heated if you like, while fully clothed in what's comfortable for you. Pressure points are worked to bring your system to zero balancing. In the simplest of words it's very much like a gentle re-boot of the craniosacral system and rhythm after a period of deep relaxation. It knows exactly what to do to support your self-healing potential into flow.

*And yes, you'll be taught how if you're new to any of these practices.
Once scheduled, you will be asked to complete two things prior to our session:
- Focus in on a 'circumstance' or condition you are seeking healing around and distill some of your understanding up to this point.
- Give me a snap shot of your primary family relations when you were growing up AND now.
- Write these in 3 pages or less. This needs to be emailed to me prior to our session or we will reschedule so you have enough time to complete this.
What to Expect and How to Prepare Further:
- Sessions are 75 minutes. Your payment prompts me to coordinate our calendars and schedule our time via email or phone. Consider time when you are able to return home and rest more, preferably for a day following, as these treatments are deeply self-correcting and informative when we give ourselves this time.
- Come dressed comfortably and well hydrated. You'll be asked to drink extra water the day following in support of your kidneys and natural elimination processes. Think of it as flushing and exchanging your inner waters (which comprise your interstitial cellular matrix).
- Eat light a few hours prior and consider doing the same for the following day.
- You'll be asked to rest more or head to sleep earlier. You'll naturally want to as you follow your body's lead.
- This form of healing is not a quick fix but is instead part of maintaining our health as a way of life. Consistent tending is the way of healing. Occasionally sessions require followup in the form of additional plant spirit work. This is discussed in our session.
- PLEASE NOTE: These sessions are reserved for past and current ElderMoon School students, past and current patients of our Integrative Health Consulting Services, and former students and clients of mine. Thank You, Jen
