Fenn Massage: Relaxing Through Cranio-Sacral Therapy

fenn-massage-notting-hill-2

As a yoga teacher, my job is not only about teaching students, but also about keeping myself healthy, informed and setting a good example to my students.  In recent years, I have noticed small changes to how my body reacts to different types of activity, in particular, I have discovered that I have a sensitive back.  I need to take extra care when moving into deep yogic forward bends, I need to move slowly and use my breath to help intensify my pose.  Thankfully, my sensitive back is an issue which, when carefully managed, causes me very little pain or hassle.

On that note, I’m always open to hearing about back health and the different options available to me in order to keep my own back healthy, so when I was contacted by Alexander Fenn from Fenn Massage about Cranio-Sacral Therapy, I was keen to learn more.

Cranio-Sacral Therapy is a gentle yet powerful holistic treatment, increasingly recognized for it’s healing benefits and its ability to resolve issues that are not helped by other means.  It is a controversial treatment which, on further research, has also been referred to as quackery.  With this in mind, I was intrigued when Alexander invited me to his Notting Hill clinic to try the treatment for myself and see how I feel afterwards.

The treatment involved light holding of different parts of my body (skull, sacrum, shoulders, ankles) and barely detectable movements.  These small movements are designed to influence the pressure and circulatory rhythm of cerebrospinal fluid (the fluid that surrounds and cushions the brain and spinal cord).

Whether the treatment is truly effective at healing or not, I found it to be incredibly soothing, relaxing and peaceful, both during and after.  I was almost asleep for most of the treatment and felt completely calm throughout.  As a big believer of taking time out and switching off from the stresses of everyday life to care for your wellbeing, Cranio-Sacral Therapy definitely ticked the box.  To try the treatment for yourself and for more information, visit Fennmassage.com and follow Fenn Massage on Facebook, Instagram and Twitter.
