How Many Sessions Will I Need?
Response to CranioSacral Therapy varies from individual to individual and condition to condition.
Your response is uniquely your own and can’t be compared to anyone else’s – even those cases that may appear to be similar to your own.
The number of sessions you may need also can be dependent on your age, health status, how long the condition has been present, medications, etc.
Typically, many clients begin to notice tangible benefits within the first few sessions, though everyone is different in their needs and response.
Can CranioSacral Therapy Help Me To Maintain My Health?
Because CranioSacral Therapy releases stress and strain in the body, as well as supporting your body’s innate healing abilities, having a monthly “tune-up” session will go a long ways toward helping to maintain your health.
Clients have reported many benefits of having maintenance sessions, such as being less susceptible to colds and coughs going on around them, sleeping more soundly, and having more energy, focus and stamina throughout their days.
