What to Expect from our Brain Balance Sessions
Updated: Jul 13
One of the most popular manual therapies we offer at Round Rock Holistic Health is our brain balance session, which combines brain lymphatic drainage and cranial sacral therapy into one treatment plan. Since the brain controls the body, it also has the power to heal it. When there is dis-ease in the body, it most likely started in the brain. Our every day thoughts, feelings, emotions and programming contributes to our overall physical health.
The Brain Balance appointment starts with thorough discussion of your initial intake form (please include as many pertinent details as possible, to cut down on discussion time, so that we have more time for treatment). Once you are on the treatment table (you remain clothed for your appointment, so please wear loose comfortable clothing), a quick physical assessment begins, and then lymphatic drainage therapy starts to open the neck lymph nodes. Once the lymphatic fluid is open and flowing properly, then cranial sacral therapy is used to gently release the cranial bones, to better access the brain structures. This process is extremely gentle, painless and relaxing. Next is working with the glymphatic (brain lymphatic) system to drain the stagnant fluid from the brain while rebalancing the brain structures, so that they flow more efficiently.
Being that our bodies detox through the lymphatic system, our brains do as well, our brains are 80% water. During sleep, the glymphatic system is highly active in removing waste products and stagnant fluids. Sleeping 7-8 hours a night is the number one way to detox your brain. The only other way is though brain lymphatic therapy.
The more relaxed that you are on the treatment table, the more brain lymphatic therapy can take place, while also having longer lasting results. If you are someone that has a busier brain or has a harder time relaxing, you will be given a visualization that will assist in your mind and body going into a parasympathetic state. Your only job while on the treatment table is to relax or even take a nap! Heat Therapy and aromatherapy is also included to aid in relaxation, and homework is given to further your treatment at home.
