Jennifer Taveras’ Personal Story About Craniosacral Therapy

My own introduction to craniosacral therapy came like most people’s – through the miracle of an illness revealing a whole new path of healing.

During acupuncture school I came down with viral labyrinthitis, an infection of the inner ear. I woke up one morning with the room spinning, unable to walk due to the severe dizziness and with every little movement causing me to vomit uncontrollably. I ended up in the local emergency room hooked up to an IV wishing I would die. There was nothing that the doctors could do, but re-hydrate me and give me medication that they said wouldn’t work as well as time would in restoring the fluid balance in my inner ears.

I spent the following days in bed unable to tolerate sound, vibration or movement as they all aggravated the vertigo and brought on fits of vomiting. The doctor told me that it would probably be at least six weeks before I’d be back to normal and able to walk in a straight line without walking into a wall.

It was my great fortune that one of my classmates knew craniosacral therapy. She gave me a treatment and when I got up off the table it was like the clouds parted and the sun came out! It was miraculous! I was 100% recovered within two days. The craniosacral therapy had assisted in re-establishing the fluid balance in my inner ears that had become stagnant due to the infection.

I became such a believer in the therapy that my success story inspired at least ten of my classmates to go onto study craniosacral therapy. Now I very joyfully share this technique with others whom each benefit from it in their own unique and positive way. I now consider that illness to have been a blessing from the Divine because it has brought me immeasurable gifts of compassion, insight and knowledge.
