At the centre of our being is the natural, universal life force which is present in, and permeates all living matter. We refer to it as the vitality or the life itself. In craniosacral work, it is also known as "the breath of life". The breath of life is the expression of life itself, which manifests through constant movement and change within and around the physical body that we identify ourselves with.
It is present in all the tissues, from the deepest, softest tissues and organs located strategically for protection in the centre of the body, through the more condensed and strong supportive structures of our musculo-skeletal system, through to the connective tissues, the surface of our skin and beyond. It is also present in all the fluids that bathe and circulate around our vital structures. It doesn't stop there, it resonates further, enveloping our bodies with the infinite matrix which engages with all other matrices present in the entire universe.
It keeps moving, ticking and breathing in every individual living cell, carrying the blueprint of the true essence that we are, regardless of time and space. This is the source of the ultimate intelligence that carries the knowledge of our past and present, the full history.
This is the source that we turn to in our work. We build a relationship through deep engagement of the therapeutic process and put the noise on hold while the body's intelligence takes a deep breath and gives its full focus to prioritise in favour of ultimate balance, health, strength, and vitality.
Given an opportunity and the right conditions, the essence will always work in our favour. It will choose balance, focus and integration. The integration process is a spontaneous response of the complex system that the body is. It keeps track of priorities and spontaneously knows what is going on at the deepest level of every system that contributes to the whole. This integrative therapeutic process is the most organic form of healing which brings us a true sense of feeling complete, whole and balanced.
The essence which is at the centre of our attention and therapeutic work also expresses itself through the condition of the physical body. They are a mirror of each other, and thanks to this relationship we are able to work from the inside out and from the outside in. Whilst in the craniosacral treatment and reiki work from the core, the therapeutic massage in the healing process from the physical body level, meeting at the common goal of integration of the whole being.
This is what we aim for, an Essence that is healthy, vibrant and infinite.
