Many clients have come to Craniosacral-East with physical pains who had been previously diagnosed with a mood, bi-polar or anxiety disorder. Surprisingly, what many have discovered is that not only have their physical symptoms found relief, but this work has also more deeply grounded them in their body, reducing their emotional stresss.
This gentle approach is a wonderful complement to traditional medical and therapeutic methods for supporting nervous system/anxiety based disorders.
What makes this work so helpful, is it helps a client experience their body, their breathing, their inner structure as an incredibly grounding place to keep their awareness. Many people are trapped within their thoughts, anxieties and plans. When a person can get more used to staying grounded in their body, it reduces the tendency to go into habitual, distressing cycles.
"I started seeing Joshua at the same time as I was diagnosed as bipolar and having wild swings. Although, I still go up and down some, it's nothing like when I first started doing this work. I highly recommend his work as a non-chemical support for mood disorders." - Jacky K.
This work is not a substitute for appropriate medical attention. I am not a doctor or therapist and therefore unable to diagnose or "treat," any emotional or psychological issue. However, this work has been found to support people working through these issues with their medical team.
