The conventional way of thinking is ‘how can I fix you?’ but we as therapists are asking ‘how can we help you fix yourself?’ After all, the body is a self healing mechanism and as therapists we are acting as mediators to create an environment for the body to heal itself. This is achieved by using Craniosacral techniques to allow the body to disengage from the sympathetic nervous system (fight or flight) and allow the body to rest and rejuvenate in the parasympathetic state.
Craniosacral Therapy uses gentle non-invasive touch to remove restrictions in the fascia, focusing on the fascia surrounding the central nervous system. The central nervous system controls every nerve, organ and muscle, while the fascia is a sheath of slightly mobile connective tissue which covers all structures within the body. Using palpation we are able to assess the mobility of the fascia, locating areas of restricted movement and allowing the body to release these restrictions, having a profound effect on well-being.
I myself had been in chronic pain for years with my back and neck. I also suffered with pain in my elbows, knees and had chronic headaches! I tried all that was on offer to make the pain go away. Craniosacral therapy from Chris Duquemin worked unbelievably well which is what started me along this journey. I discovered that I had a natural ability to intuitively heal not only myself but also other people. It is my mission in life to share my gift with others.
What To Expect When You Come For A Treatment
When you pull into Maison Victor Hugo, you have the option of parking directly in front of you or turning left towards the clinic, where there is parking along the hedge. You'll see New Vision Therapy above the door, so you can't miss us. When you enter the clinic, please take a seat at the reception area, and Sam will greet you at your appointment time, welcoming you into the treatment room, a relaxing space with calming music and therapeutic essential oils setting a soothing mood.
You'll be laying down for your treatment and will remain fully clothed throughout, though a blanket can be provided if you would like one. Your treatment will be soft-touch, and there are no physical manipulations. As such, it will be a very relaxing experience, and it's completely fine to fall asleep! Initial treatments will be approximately ninety minutes, with follow-ups taking around an hour.
At the end of the treatment, Sam may offer you one of the Munay-Ki rites if he feels they may be beneficial - these are energetic transmissions that help to heal the wounds of the past. After that, he'll provide an overview of what he found during your treatment, and also further discuss both the treatment itself, and what you can do at home to maintain your health.
