So, firstly, the most important step is to come in for an initial appointment. From that point it becomes evident how many sessions are likely depending on your condition and how well you respond to the treatment.
Some people may need just two sessions to relieve the main symptoms of their conditions whereas others may need four or five sessions inside a month followed by maintenance sessions for some time afterwards. I often find that the therapy works very effectively when given intensively over a short time. For example, one session a week for a few weeks in a row.
One of the things that I am very conscious of is to not generate a level of dependence on myself, the therapist. As result I am always happy when the client decides that they have got what they needed from the therapy for the present and rebook when they feel they need another session - or indeed, they are happy to move on. As the sessions progress, the client is always in the "driver’s seat". I like to teach clients to listen to their bodies and let that guide them.
Oftentimes, clients may need to see another practitioner such as a chiropractor or acupuncturist to assist them in their journey to optimum health. These sessions often happen in parallel with the CranioSacral treatments. This is a client's individual choice and unfolds as treatments progress.
I have found over the years that, in general, the longer the injury or symptoms have been with the person the longer it takes to help them alleviate them. So, a newborn baby with birth trauma; if treated right away, will not take as long to heal as someone suffering from migraines or chronic pain for years.
But after saying that I can never be sure, I have treated people with years of headaches that have disappeared after three treatments. The main thing to remember is that each person has individual circumstances and will be treated accordingly.
