CRANIOSACRAL THERAPY (CST)
with Johan Svanborg
CranioSacral Therapy (CST) is a gentle, hands-on approach that releases tensions deep in the body to relieve pain and dysfunction and improve whole-body health and performance. Using a soft touch, this deeply relaxing treatment guides you into a profoundly healing state, where your body and mind are allowed to unwind and clear long held tensions. This treatment can be preceded by a short Thai Massage session to slowly unwind into deep relaxation, prior to releasing deeper held tensions through craniosacral work.
Duration: 1 hour
Ocean Floating Tank
When you are going into a floating tank, you have no senses to relate to. It´s completely black with no sounds; you are floating in saltwater with warm skin temperature and you are forced to relax totally – this brings you faster to a deeper meditative state, strong connection to yourself and a very deep relaxation. The mind gets a break, thoughts get more clear and the brain’s creative capacity increases. Floating decreases stress hormones in the blood and increases the excretion of endorphins that control pain and stress. Brain theta waves are created by the brain, which give a state of deep relaxation that is only achieved during a long meditation practice.
Duration: 1 hour
