As you can tell from previous posts, I love new experiences. Not heart-stopping ones like riding a roller coaster or sky-jumping (not on my bucket list to do either of those), but those that allow me to remain grounded or at least close to the ground. Since becoming a Cellular Response energy healing practitioner, I am now very interested in other energy healing modalities. My previous posts have talked about Quantum-Touch, Reiki, Hypnotherapy, Polarity Therapy and now my latest experience, CranioSacral Therapy (CST).

I was the fortunate recipient of a gift card to Massage Envy. I checked out their Web site and noticed that they offered CST. I was very excited because it is something that I wanted to experience. I had heard from CranioSacral therapists that CST was similar to Cellular Response. However, the one I experienced at Massage Envy was not anything like Cellular Response which is light-touch healing. What I experienced was definitely much like a massage.

According to Kelly Price in an ezine.com article, craniosacral massage is a gentle, hands-on method of evaluating and enhancing the function of the craniosacral system and this type of massage involves a very light touch. The goal is for the body to heal itself, similar to Cellular Response. Other similarities included breathing and holding two points, but overall, it was just a massage. Perhaps I will get to experience it again from someone who specializes in it.

In the past year, I’ve been introduced to two energy healing modalities — Quantum-Touch and Cellular Response. Both advocate that your body can heal itself. The first time I sought a Quantum-Touch practitioner was because I had fallen hard on my cheek bone and it did not feel right after many months despite the fact that the ophthalmologist and the otolaryngologist could find nothing wrong. I found Miriam Hunter in Virginia and she balanced the energy in my body, showed me some exercises and I felt much relief.

Cellular Response was something I experienced just a few days ago on a visit to California. During my yoga class a couple of months ago, I noticed that I did not have full range of motion with my left arm stretched above my head lying on the floor. Additionally, if I tried to lift my arm in the “wrong” direction, it was painful. At the beginning of the treatment, while standing, I was able to lift my left arm 90 degrees straight out to the side. By the end, I could lift it to almost 180 degrees. It’s weak from limited use, but I was given weight-training instructions to strengthen it. I’ve always had a left knee that tends to buckle and the practitioner found that my hips were not aligned. Now he says, I should walk a lot better. Hopefully, that will prevent falls as well.

I spent almost three hours at a Cellular Response workshop where, under the guidance of the master instructor and developer of Cellular Response, Dan Yamaguchi, I watched his students of all levels work on mostly seniors (after all, aren’t we the group with all of the aches and pains?) for a myriad of health problems. One person was about to receive treatment for cancer and although Cellular Response cannot cure cancer (it does not claim to cure anything), a person can get relief from the effects such as nausea and it can even prevent hair loss. I also watched while someone with calcium deposits from arthritis on her fingers had them broken up so that the lump on her fingers got smaller.

According to quantumtouch.com, Quantum-Touch is a powerful, yet easy to learn, method of natural healing (or energy healing).  Everyone has the innate ability to help ourselves and others. The Quantum-Touch techniques teach us how to focus and amplify life-force energy (or Chi, Bioenergy, Prana) by combining various breathing and energy awareness exercises.  QT energy healers learn to amplify and direct the life-force energy, facilitating the body’s own healing process. Our love has more impact than we can imagine; the possibilities are truly extraordinary.

The Cellular Response brochure says that Cellular Response is a healing art. It is a procedure used to activate one’s cellular response to promote natural healing. A gentle touch to specific body points along with a breathing process is used during this procedure. The basic premise is that the body will heal by itself and return to a normal state. Cellular Response accelerates the self-healing process.

Quantum Touch offers teleseminars. For more information, click here. Richard Gordon, founder of Quantum-Touch, wrote a book called, Quantum-Touch: The Power to Heal. He explains all of the basic techniques in his book.

Cellular Response currently operates mainly in the Silicon Valley/San Jose area of California, although there are a few practitioners elsewhere.

I find energy healing fascinating and in line with my view of using all natural products instead of prescription medication.
