Years ago, I had a neck injury, a “whiplash.” It was a very emotional event for me . . . I really feared that I would never recover. I hurt all over, and couldn’t even use my car’s rear view mirror without pain. I couldn’t turn my head to the left at all, and I could not even stand up straight.
I was quickly loosing my attitude also. I was constantly moody and anxious about whether or not I would recover. That was when I was first introduced to craniosacral therapy, and somatoemotional release. The experienced was a miracle, because it was a life changer for me. It’s the thing that inspired me to become a certified craniosacral therapist.
