I had the same question when I first started to hear about this healing modality a few years ago. Is it energy work? Is it a strange head massage? What do they plan to do with my sacrum? Everyone kept telling me, “It’s hard to explain. You’ve just gotta try it.” Curiosity got the better of me and I scheduled my first treatment while I was on yoga teaching vacation in the Outer Banks of North Carolina. Shortly before my session, I had found out my maternal grandpa had died and I couldn’t afford to fly home to be with my family. He was the first of all my grandparents to die, so the grief I was experiencing was new. I wasn’t sure if I should be getting any bodywork done while I was feeling so tender and raw, but I was assured this is one of the best things I could have been doing. They were not wrong.
