We live in a time where so much is changing on the planet as well
as in our physical and subtle bodies. The essence of The Art of Sacred
Touch (AST) is about introducing a new paradigm of bodywork, which
integrates a comprehensive level of awareness, healing and transformation
in each of these planes.
AST interweaves Visionary Craniosacral Work with hands-on energy healing,
breath, movement and body awareness into a rich tapestry where the
body, mind, emotions and spirit are all touched. Neuroenergetic Release®
is often integrated into personal sessions to gently facilitate structural
shifts that support the healing processes.
About Visionary Craniosacral Work
Visionary Craniosacral Work is a holistic healing practice, which
uses extremely light finger pressure to optimize a movement pattern
in the body known as the cranial wave. In the cranial
bones, the movement of the cranial wave can be as little as 40 microns,
which is less than half the thickness of a sheet of writing paper.
But even with this amount of movement, the human head is so delicate,
and so suffused with vital nerve pathways, that even a slight deviation
of a bones movement or position can produce physical or psychological
symptoms, and often both.
Visionary Craniosacral Work is one of the most respectful of all bodywork
techniques. It differs from most other modalities by its lightness
of touch, and the long, attentive duration of each contact. Clients
may be treated fully clothed, or as part of a massage treatment.
This work utilizes focused attention and gentle touch as the foundation
of healing. Practitioners are trained to work in a deeply meditative
state. In this state, much like homeopathy, the minutest pressure
or movement has a deep and profound effect. Less is often better in
About Neuroenergetic Release®
Neuroenergetic Release (NER) was founded by Donald W. Kipp, and is
a unique whole-istic system that works at the interface of the neurological,
energetic, and muscular systems of the body. The intent is always
to gently facilitate the bodys self-correcting response rather
than to force a change.
NER is a powerful bodywork and manual therapy for pain relief, injury
rehabilitation, and a wide range of health issues. This technique
releases structural imbalances, facilitates energy flow, and helps
the body realign on its own. This allows major structural changes
and pain relief to occur in just a few sessions.
NER works by correcting core distortion patterns. This is a pattern
of compensations, distortions and asymmetries that are held in the
whole body form head to foot, fingertips to toes. NER is a very gentle
approach to bringing balance back to the body, and works well in combination
with craniosacral work.
Who Can Benefit From This Work?
AST focuses on helping the whole body come back into an energetic
and structural alignment, inviting energy to flow freely through the
head, spine and pelvis, and may be used to work with painful or restricted
conditions anywhere in the body. It can be effective for many conditions
Various Levels of Headaches
Motor Vehicle Accident Injuries
Low Back Pain
Disk Injuries and Herniations
Neck and Shoulder Pain
Sciatic Nerve Pain
Dyslexia, Learning Difficulties
Temporomandibular Joint (TMJ) problems
AST can also be highly effective in helping the return of mental clarity
and abundant energy after a life-crisis or physical trauma and sometimes
helps alleviate chronic depression. Some people seek out treatment
for its calming and meditative experience. Others find craniosacral
touch to be a deeply spiritual experience and use it to gain the kind
of transformative insight that paves the way for important changes
in their lives.
