Simon’s background is in music. Due to the nature of his work he has been surrounded by loud music for years and as a result developed severe tinnitus, which he assumed was from the noise. After having his ears checked, a friend of his recommended Cranio-Sacral Therapy explaining that it can help with calming the nervous system which is directly related to the cranial nerves of the ears. It was quite a life changing experience for him, not only reducing the ringing in his ears, but he felt like he could breathe again. It didn’t disappear completely but it subsided enough to feel calmer, more balanced and in control.
After a few treatments, Simon started feeling different in himself in other ways. He felt more peaceful, more in tune and more relaxed in himself. He hadn’t realised how stressed and anxious his system was, not just from the tinnitus but everything in life that was storing up. Emotions, physical tensions and so on, which turns out was triggering this ringing in his head. Simon continued on this path and learned how to meditate, as well as practicing yoga and mindfulness. Along this journey, he began to see life clearer and through this different perspective, he had found the link that was missing and decided he wanted to help people feel good, so went to train as a Cranio-Sacral Therapist. Simon can safely say this has by far been the most rewarding and fulfilling experience of his life to date.
What does a Cranial session involve?
Simon will take a written case history, listening with care to the reasons for your visit. This part of the session is important, both for gathering information, and to establish a good understanding with your practitioner. You then lie fully clothed on a treatment couch. If you are unable to lie flat, you can be on your side, or in a chair. Typically during the session you relax quietly while the practitioner uses a number of gentle hand contacts on the head, base of the spine, and other areas around the body.
