“There are only two ways to live your life. One is as though nothing is a miracle. The other is as though everything is a miracle”, Albert Einstein
Ten days have passed since the last Meningeal Approach course, that prodigious technique developed by Jose Luis Perez Battle, which is the natural evolution of the Craniosacral Therapy.
In fact, it is covered by the Upledger Institute, which in many ways confirms its immense value within the world of manual therapies, where it is bound to power ahead. It is for a reason that in Spain the Meningeal Approach is heard about more and more when we refer to the very necessary trauma of birth and the tensions that are generated in the baby during its stay in the uterus. But I’m getting away from what I really want to share, which is my personal experience. It has taken me ten days to be able to do it… Thinking, feeling, understanding…
The 2nd module of the Meningeal Approach, which is the one that I was lucky enough to experience and share with my colleagues, focuses on the moment at which the baby passes or doesn’t pass through the birth canal and the tensions that generates. The weight that the parietal bones have to bear and how it is manifested in the temporomandibular joint, concepts like the treatment of the medullary cone, etc.
Seeing that my birth was by Caesarean section and I was caught in a double cord twist, this was the course for me, “it was my moment”. I was presented with the opportunity to heal and liberate my body of those tensions and the opportunity to receive the stimulation that I lacked by not experiencing a vaginal birth. I went to Granada feeling nervous and happy about what I was going to experience and learn. Although I would never have imagined, not for an instant, the change that was going to happen in my daily routine and in my whole life.
Since I started learning about Osteopathy and its different facets, I have been working on my jaw, but my bite was not being corrected and I got the impression that my temporal bones were like a creaking rusty door, that cracking of the bone that made my skin creep and that would only disappear once it created a still point in my occipital. At this point, I was actually used to it and I no longer even noticed my irregular bite, until I got to Granada, obviously.
