Visceral Listening and Complimentary Therapies
In today’s world we often discover ourselves being pulled and yanked and our attention is being activated in multiple directions. When do we have the time to be heard and felt? Do we remember the last time we really sat down and listened to our cells? What would it be like to listen to our the message of our organs? What would it be like to know where we carry our stress? Would it change how we continue to hold ourselves? Would we start a preventive wellness practice? How would it look? Would you create a regular bi weekly schedule? What would that feel like? How would it change our life?
Manual therapy is a beautiful way to learn about ourselves, let go of the stress and feel invincible again. Some people like it deep and some enjoy a deep subtle light therapy. Although I specialize in both therapies in multiple ways. I have been studying the deep yet subtle light therapy lately. I would love to work with people who not only carry stress but people who have PTSD, emotional and physical traumas, adrenal fatigue, ADHD/ADD, Fibromyalgia and learning disorders and all ages with chronic pain who are ready to have a long lasting sigh of relief through manual therapy. I received the extra training to offer you various styles of assistance. I’m now trained in geriatrics and have some training in Orthobionomy. Ortho-bionomy is a gentle, non-invasive, osteopathically-based form of body therapy which is highly effective in working with chronic stress, injuries and pains or problems associated with postural and structural imbalances.
I have been trained and practicing Cranial Sacral for quite some time. I have yet to really get into the juicy fun facts about it. Cranial Sacral and Orthobionomy and Visceral therapy all work very much on a similar wave of thinking. This thinking is that your body can heal itself by being whatever is out of balance simply to be witnessed. There are also many mental therapies that observe this kind of therapy. Orthobionomy and Cranial Sacral core practice is in listening and being heard. The art of listening to our nervous system is an art whether from your point of you view or your practitioner's point of view.
Orthobionomy (view of Visceral therapy or organ manual therapy or massage) Is all about tuning into your organs for flushing, release, and balance. It is so gentle that you will either get an awesome relief or nothing will happen. There are no side affects except relaxation, relief, and release. It is so gentle that broken bones can even be worked on (or as an orthobionomist might say listened to and noticed). The first time I had someone work on my kidneys was the best day of my life. It felt like all this fear I’ve been holding in had a place to be let go. I felt like I was finally being held the right way. Another example is when a friend has a hard time getting drunk. She had her liver flushed through Visceral Orthobionomy and she got drunk on one glass of wine. Another helpful subtle way this can help is with indigestion and chronic acid reflux. Those problems often cause us to pull our diaphragm in. Our diaphragm is this giant muscle that holds our lungs and is wrapped around the body and overlaps with the stomach and liver. If you’re having mid torso tension it might be wise to have a visceral therapist release your diaphragm.
Some people go to orthobionomist for visceral therapy to get fertile. Sometimes we can’t hold the babies in because our pelvis is tilted or our uterus isn’t positioned or is holding extreme tension which can sometimes cause a miscarriage. Orthobionomy goes great as pre therapy to getting eggs planted inside you because it removes all restrictions in your pelvis and around it before you get implanted with your eggs. One more thing that I loved about this class was learning about how to release old pain in our colon. I was astonished and grateful that part of the process was in my upper thighs where the lines could of been structural but in my case the achy feeling in my thighs is connected to my colon. It was a relaxing light yet deep release of old energy trapped in my legs and in my colon. Can you imagine having a visceral session with me to let go of that excess tension that has yet to be digested completely? Can you imagine releasing that old fear trapped in the kidneys and adrenals; longing to be gone by being held?
If so, let me know!!!
Cranial Sacral works wonderfully with organ massage and/or Visceral Orthobionomy. I am trained and enjoy giving in Che Nei Sung which is the Chinese version of organ massage. It’s more of a deeper manual movement of the fascia and lymphatic tissue rather than nervous system and subtle fascia movement. When I mean fascia I am talking about tissue and muscle tissue of sorts. Cranial sacral rebalances the nervous system and helps stimulate cranial and spinal fluids. It helps people with chronic anxiety, brain traumas, autism, adhd/add, ptsd, all kinds of traumas, headaches, neck pain, etc. A full Cranial Sacral and visceral therapy session is about 90 minutes. For working with a chronic issue takes around 5-10 sessions depending on how the person responds and integrates it into one's lifestyle. We can mix deep myofascial release therapy with cranial if you would like. It gets us deep into our cells and allows great release but it doesn’t mean we can’t also release that stuck fascia of tension and stress that we didn’t already let go through the Ortho-bionomy and Cranial Sacral.
I love giving and learning about massages and love to help people know how to take care of themselves and their friends! I might share some basics or go into some deeply shared wellness tips from my experiences to help you along your life happiness.
