CranioSacral Therapy, Myofascial therapy, Rolfing… OH MY!

Tuesday, April 10th, 2007

Well, I thought I would write a quick post about Izzy’s appointment today. We met Michael the therapist (aka Bear?)… he was very nice, gentle, kind … He had an interesting approach. I was sitting in his waiting area on the sofa and he came out and sat beside me. He asked if Izzy would mind if he held her? I told him I didn’t think she would mind. He began rubbing her neck and head (I guess this was the craniosacral part of the therapy.) He talked to us (Matt met us there too) while he worked on her at least an hour. He worked on her hips, her spine, her feet… all the time telling us where and how to do these same things. He showed me with his hands pressure points and how to apply firm but gentle pressure. I liked him. About half way through the session I could tell he had caught the Izzy bug. It doesn’t take long for anyone who spends any time with her to fall for her – completely 🙂 and he did. He said he would work with her weekly. Before we left I asked him about the fees for his services to which he replied, “I will not accept payment for working with Izzy. This is the reason I love what I do and I love working with her.” He teared up, Matt teared up, of course I teared up … Anyway, he said I could bake him a pie or something but he could not accept payment for his sessions with Izzy. What a blessing! Everything we do is thousands of dollars so I was more surprised than anything at first. I left feeling very peaceful about our experience and know that “bear” will be great for Izzy! Tonight Matt did some of the techniques for relaxation on Izzy after her supper, she fell asleep in his lap (very unusual). It worked… She doesn’t seem to be sick, just a little sniffly. Thanks for your prayers today, I know they blessed our socks off.
