Silence and Stillness
In 2015, the metal band Disturbed released a haunting re-mix of the iconic Sound of Silence by Simon and Garfunkel. I'm 'old-school', so the link is to their original version. Listening to it leaves me thinking about The Sound of Silence. It's one of those interesting songs bridging generations and styles.

Bridging and personalizing styles of therapy was a part of our discussions while I was assisting some courses on Craniosacral Therapy and Concussion in January and February. It's hard not to be aware of the effects of concussion with all of the recent news in the NFL and children's sports about Traumatic Brain Injuries (TBI). Unfortunately, Mild TBI's are common and can be caused by a variety of impact injuries and even dental work.

One of the important and often neglected aspects of healing from TBI's involves total rest.  Total rest means no TV, no music, no distractions. Silence.

A recent article by Carolyn Gregoire highlights 4 reasons why silence is good for your brain.

1. Silence relieves stress and tension
2. Silence replenishes our mental resources
3. In silence, we can tap into the brain's default network
4. Getting quiet can regenerate brain cells

These benefits are also facilitated during Craniosacral Therapy where we seek slowing and stillness in the fluid body, with tissue, nervous system and cardiovascular calming and integration. Each client has their own unique experience and each practitioner brings their own unique style to the experience.

In our busy worlds, it's important to find time to seek silence and stillness so we can restore a sense of Health and Wholeness within.
Let's explore the silence of the Stillness Within
