One of my case stories was published in An Answer to Your Pain: CranioSacral Therapy Practitioner Case Stories edited by Upledger Institute International, Inc. Found on page 150, I wrote "Proof that Energy Fields Matter" after experiencing a mind opening session with a 6 month old baby.
This little boy had had many surgeries and procedures in the first 6 months of life. He was on a feeding tube and seemed to be always in discomfort. When I began the session, I discovered that before I could even touch his little body, I had to work off of his body. The baby would cry if my hand came too close to his body and then he would stop when I reached the perfect (for him) distance away from his body. I waited and paid attention to a change in quality of what my hands were feeling. Sometimes it felt like a repelling sensation, sometimes a tingling, sometimes a melting towards his body. When I felt a change I would test to see if I could let my hand come closer to him. His crying communicated to me when I went too close and when I was at a just right place. We did this back and forth dance for about 20 minutes. I was always paying attention to what my hands were feeling even though my hands were in the air. There was also a sense of the space around him, which I understand to be energy fields. At last, my hands landed gently onto his body and he softened and did not cry. He allowed me to touch him and he was able to receive the touch.
It is one thing to read about energy fields, it is another to experience validation or "proof" that the energy fields around us are real and important. To read more case stories and how people have been helped by CranioSacral Therapy, check out this book!
