9781556435591: Wisdom in the Body: The Craniosacral Approach to Essential Health

Accumulations of life stresses—physical injuries, emotional and psychological stresses, birth traumas, and toxicity—can become imprinted in the tissues, acting like a videotape that is replayed whenever stimulated. Biodynamic craniosacral therapy aims to resolve the trapped forces that underlie and drive these trauma-based patterns of disease and suffering in body and mind. Wisdom in the Body teaches practitioners to develop the finely tuned skills of hands-on palpation and perception to sense the body’s subtle rhythms and patterns of inertia or congestion, with the goal of ending trauma and facilitating the expression of the breath of life. A comprehensive introduction to this practice, the book draws on the insights of pioneers like Drs. W. G. Sutherland and Franklyn Sills to explain the key principles about the body’s natural intention to heal and how this capability can be encouraged. A valuable resource for students, practitioners, and the lay reader, the book also includes a foreword by Dr. Franklyn Sills.

Review:

"A well-written, practical overview of craniosacral therapy, one of the safest and most effective techniques for improving health that I have found. I wish that more practitioners like Michael Kern were available."-Andrew Weil, author of Natural Health, Natural Healing"This is an amazing piece of work, deeply intelligent and profoundly inspirational. Michael Kern has delivered the goods. When you finish this book you will either want to become a craniosacral practitioner or rush out and find one. If you are in a body, read this book."-Gabrielle Roth, founder of the Moving Center in New York, and author of Sweat Your Prayers: Movement as Spiritual Practice and Maps to Ecstasy"This book is a plea for a holistic approach to healing, in which we honor all that makes us human – body, mind, spirit. Michael Kern’s scholarship is admirable."- Larry Dossey M.D., author of Reinventing Medicine, Healing Words and Space, Time and Medicine
