The decision whether to undergo surgery is often influenced by fear of the results. This fear is very real and valid, for it arises from lack of knowledge of your body’s needs. However, the fear compromises your pyschological wellbeing as well. Cranio sessions before surgery will bring you to a place of equanimity and acceptance, in full readiness to bear the consequences of surgery.
Often lingering fear keeps us in negative spiraling thoughts and beliefs that can prevent quick healing. Surgery is an intense experience, physiologically and emotionally. New somatic sensations will be created from this experience. Cranio therapy will help you mobilise resources to deal with all this and more.
