Surgery and craniosacral therapy
Supporting recovery from surgery with craniosacral therapy
The gentle approach of craniosacral therapy makes it ideal for supporting recovery from medical operations and the effects of anaesthetic, including dental surgery.
Healthy scarring and the processing of any shock retained in the body are fundamental to making good recovery after surgery.
I find that through working gently with fascia (the connective tissue wrapping all the organs and muscles throughout your body), craniosacral therapy can minimise adhesions, supporting the formation of healthy scar tissue. Craniosacral therapy can also be an important support for clients in processing emotional responses to surgery and their experiences of medical treatment.
Dental surgery, particularly wisdom tooth extractions, can strain the soft tissue in the head and neck and result in TMJ symptoms. Often these resolve without need for therapeutic support, but several symptoms can arise following dental surgery and are likely to be rooted in these soft tissue strains.
In my practice, I have worked with clients suffering from shoulder pain, lower back pain and stiffness in neck and jaw that have followed wisdom tooth extraction. Clients have reported the relief of symptoms that have sometimes persisted for several years after dental treatment.
