Body Wisdom CranioSacral Therapy St Petersburg Florida provides effective, results-oriented therapies for lasting relief from a variety of health conditions

CranioSacral Therapy (CST) is gentle, yet very effective.  For a practitioner to become adept at effectively utilizing CranioSacral techniques, much time and attention to the subtleties of the central nervous system are necessary.  Being able to feel the subtle rhythms of the craniosacral system and then facilitating improvement in these rhythms involves a proficient training and a great deal of skill and practical experience in working with the body.

Sandy Schell, CST, has well over 20 years of experience and is an advanced level therapist who has worked with many complex health challenges over the years.

CranioSacral Therapy has its roots in Osteopathic Medicine (somewhat similar to what the old school DO’s used to be taught).

CST, while gentle, can facilitate pain reduction and elimination, as well as helping your body release tension and strain patterns that underly your symptoms. Additionally, CST can help improve the communication and functioning of your body.  Real improvement with lasting results – on fundamental levels – is what CST is all about.

To help facilitate maximum healing, sometimes Reiki Energy Healing, Somato Emotional Release (SER), Grid Balancing, Myofascial Release, & Vagus Nerve Balancing are combined with CST in a treatment session.

What Is CranioSacral Therapy Like & What Kind Of Results Can I Expect?

Everyone responds differently, due to age, life experiences, traumas, health history, how long your symptoms have been active, etc, though many people begin to feel improvements (or family members notice changes happening) within a relatively short period of time.  For mild type conditions that are relatively new, usually noticeable improvements happen within one to four sessions (sometimes only 1 or 2 sessions are needed to resolve a mild issue).  For more chronic, long-standing, or complex issues, it may take a number of sessions to really feel like yourself again.

Scheduling a consultation before beginning treatment is recommended, especially for chronic or more complex issues.

During your initial treatment session you'll be given feedback and recommendations to help you understand more clearly what a proposed treatment plan and self-care plan would look like.  My focus during your first session will be to assess what stress patterns have arisen that are causing your health issues, as well as begin the treatment process to help you move forward towards your health goals.

The process begins immediately, and as you settle in and relax on the table, I will palpate along your spine, torso, neck, head, and limbs to assess what areas need attention first.  From this I will begin working to release the strain patterns that are causing your symptoms.

Each session will be different, and will be based on palpation and assessment of the imbalances and disruptions in your body at that time.  As well, each session builds upon the previous and supports your progress forward.

Dysfunction is removed, improved functioning is restored, and your symptoms abate as your nervous system reallocates its resources away from managing or compensating for dysfunction toward proper communication and functioning throughout your body.

Sometimes patients comment of being able to feel energy moving and a lightness in their body as the sessions progress. Others have noticed their senses (taste, sight, hearing) improve along with their symptoms going away.

I worked with a young man who came to me for vision issues in his eye.  As we worked together, not only did the issues in the one eye disappear, the vision in his "healthy" eye also improved.  He later mentioned that his doctor was shocked by the outcome.

CranioSacral Therapy is a safe, gentle, effective way to improve the flow of fluids, release tension and strain patterns in the fascia (including stress patterns in the spine and cranium), and restore proper energy flow and communication in your body - resulting in more optimal health and well being.

Your body is designed to heal itself - and will do so in most cases, given the proper expertise, support, and care.

What Is The CranioSacral System & How The Body Works

Understanding the Craniosacral System, and how it affects your health will help you understand more clearly how your body came to the state it’s in at present.

Our body is comprised primarily of energy, fluids, and fascia (connective tissue, such as skin, muscles, tendons, and bones). These three aspects work well together when the body is healthy.  However, one or more of these aspects become disturbed, then issues (symptoms) appear.

As an example, if your brain cannot communicate with your foot, you will likely either fall, lose your balance, feel pain, or some other type of symptoms will appear.  If fluids don’t flow well through your arteries and veins or along your spine and through your cranium, then a variety of symptoms are possible.  If you slip and fall and your connective tissue becomes damaged or disturbed, then pain, swelling, stiffness or other symptoms will appear.

The Craniosacral System is primarily comprised of the brain, head, spine & tailbone, and all the connective tissue and fluids within these structures. The brain and spine are fundamental components of the nervous system – the central system that “runs” our body.  This system must be in good health for our body to function the way it should.

Much in the way of disease and illness is due to the brain and spinal column not able to function well due to stress and strain patterns in the energy, the fluids, or the fascia within the nervous system that are causing dysfunction to arise.

Craniosacral Therapy is an effective method of restoring and balancing the nervous system (and your whole body) by removing the patterns that are causing the dysfunction.  Once the patterns are removed, the symptoms naturally disappear, and you regain your health, strength, and vitality.

Hi, I’m Sandy Schell, a Certified CranioSacral Therapist with 20+ years experience.  As an Advanced Level Therapist, I’ve helped people with a wide variety of health conditions.  My primary focus is CranioSacral Therapy, although I will also combine other modalities as necessary into a session, such as Myofascial Release, Reiki, Grid Balancing, Vagus Nerve Balancing.

CranioSacral Therapy St Petersburg FL has a long, proven track record of being able to restore health and vitality by focusing on the core elements that “run” the body – the nervous system, it’s fluids, rhythms, and fascia (connective tissue).

CranioSacral Therapy is based in Osteopathic Medicine, and dates back to the early 1900’s.  It’s safe, effective, and results-oriented.

The proper functioning of your nervous system is vitally important to your health and well-being.  Your nervous system is based in communication, which happens through the cells, the energetic impulses, the fluids, and the connective tissues of the body.  Having clear, strong, healthy communication, energy, and fluid movement is what underlies a health body.  By focusing on the nervous system, a properly trained, experienced CranioSacral Therapist can release stress patterns at the causative level, resulting in symptoms disappearing once balance and communication throughout the body are restored.

Musculoskeletal tightness, neurological imbalances, autoimmune disease, many types of pain, and organ dysfunction are some of the many categories of health conditions that typically respond well with CranioSacral Therapy.
