Health can be defined in different ways, but most people agree that true wellness is more than the absence of unwanted symptoms of pain or disease. At its fullest, health is a state of physical and mental well-being, characterized by vitality, strength, happiness, peace, and a sense of wholeness. How you define health and wellness will guide your healing.
Inherent Wisdom Guides the Healing Process
Dr. John Upledger, developer of CranioSacral Therapy and founder of the Upledger Institute, believed that each individual possesses inherent wisdom that can guide the healing process. He refers to this wisdom as the Inner Physician. Your experiences, perspectives, and gifts will make your process unique. There is no prescribed path that applies to everyone.
Open Mind and Clear Communication
Whether you enjoy the general benefits of a CranioSacral Therapy, energy clearing, or want to address specific physical complaints or emotional stresses — an open mind and clear communication between you and the therapist are critical.
Some questions to guide your process:
- What are my goals?
- How do I define wellness?
- Are there qualities of health and well-being that I would like to experience more fully?
- Am I willing to try different therapies in order to achieve my goals?
