Caring For The Caregiver With CST
Are you busy raising children? Do some of your children also have mental or physical challenges that add to the complexity of each day? Are you looking after an elderly parent who is getting increasingly frail? Are you the primary support for a family member with a chronic, debilitating condition? Are you helping a friend who is undergoing treatment for cancer? Are you a nurse, doctor, psychotherapist, physical or occupational therapist, acupuncturist, massage therapist, chiropractor, energy healer or another health practitioner?
Are you aiding other caregivers who need assistance?
Then you know that in the heat of duty and responsibility for another it is easy to push aside necessary care for yourself. Yet it is you, the caregiver, who needs the most support and TLC.
Over time, caring for others can sap vital energy, grounding, mental clarity, and can interfere with being fully present in the moment. If you do not make time to receive nurturing and revitalization to recharge you, you cannot be your best caregiver. Sometimes this can lead to anger, frustration and resentment right when you need to be your most patient, understanding and kind to another human being.
By encouraging your body to self-correct and release strain patterns built-up deep within, CranioSacral Therapy helps your body to gently and naturally let go, soften, relax and restore. That way, you can ground in replenished strength and get back out there to give to others with a full and enthusiastic heart.
