“Still the body, still the mind, still the voice inside; in silence, feel the Stillness move.
Dear friends, this feeling cannot be imagined.” -Kabir
Craniosacral Work (CSW) is a form of gentle bodywork which grew out of Dr. William G. Sutherland’s work on Cranial Osteopathy, a specialization of Osteopathic Medicine. Traditionally CSW focuses Craniosacral system that is composed of the cranium bones that make up the human head, the vertebra and sacrum, the brain, the central nervous system, the system of membranes inside the cranium and spinal column, and the cerebrospinal fluid (CSF).
At the deep level, our whole being subtly “breathes” with the motion of life – a phenomenon that produces rhythmic movements, referred as “breath of life”. Working with fluctuation of CSF and “Breath of Life” is the fundamental principle in CSW. Craniosacral Work focuses on “breath of life” and by taking a whole-person approach to healing and the inter-connections of mind, body and spirit.
The foundation of Siddha Cranial Healing practice is based on CranioSacral Work and Breath of Shakti which is ancient wisdom of Himalayan Shamanism (or Siddha Tantra). In Siddha-Tantra inner-wind and heat is cultivated and circulated in nadis (subtle cannnels or meridansl) to treat physical pain, emotional afflictions, and enhance spiritual awareness. Siddh Cranial Work combines Nadi (subtle channels) work with CranioSacral work to help resolve chronic pain, toxic emotions and spritual emergencies.
Traditional eastern healing systems view living being as an intricately woven system of energies (Prana or Qi) in which our consciousness dwells. Ultimately it’s the ‘dweller’ (or consciousness) that gives the purpose to the living form, however, the bio-energy that integrates and animates all the elements in the living being is the Prana.
Source of all movement is in dynamic-stillness, a wheel moves forward because it’s center is still. The movement is imbalanced when it’s center is off-balance. The dis-ease, in traditional healing systems, is caused by the imbalances in the movement of pranas (life-force) within the individual or between the individual and the cosmos.
Wellness can be restored by harmonizing the free flow of prana and by restoring it’s center of movement. Siddh Cranial Healing helps in releasing chronic stress, pain and energy blockages. It promote vitality, relaxation and healing. It is an effective form of treatment for a wide range of illnesses helping to create the optimal conditions for health, encouraging vitality and facilitating a sense of well-being.
