Craniosacral therapy after a car accident

Have you had the unfortunate experience of having a car accident? Are you still experiencing lingering pain even though you “checked out okay” at the scene? Consider CranioSacral Therapy (CST) as part of your recovery.

When you have a Motor Vehicle Accident (MVA) your body can experience the effects of the shock for months or even years afterwards. The MVA can introduce new injuries, patterns of restriction, pain, and emotional trauma, that are layered on top of previous ones. These traumas restrict the flow of cerebrospinal fluid, which is our body’s way of healing the brain and nervous system.

Additionally, when we experience an event, like a car accident, our sympathetic nervous system is engaged. This is the body’s fight or flight response. Adrenaline and cortisol get released, your heart rate increases, your breathing is faster. These effects typically subside within 30 minutes but sometimes they don’t. When they don’t subside it starts to put strain on the body. Craniosacral therapy activates the parasympathetic nervous system, your rest and digest response, and provides your body the opportunity to deeply relax so restrictions can be released.

Through CranioSacral Therapy, energy from the accident is released, the parasympathetic nervous system is activated, and new and old injuries and patterns of restriction can be resolved.
