Sacred Journey Therapy (SJT) is a shamanic approach to Cranial Sacral Therapy. It is truly a holistic therapy that is very powerful and unique. It includes elements borrowed from Cranial  Osteopathy, Massage, and traditional Cranial Sacral Therapy. SJT is widened by aspects of parapsychology, trans-personal and traditional psychology, studies of consciousness, physics, metaphysics, spirituality, and shamanism. Cranial Sacral has a psychodynamic approach of intertwining perception and intention with meditative use of the inner eye, inner ear, and empathic heart to communicate and heal the physical, emotional, mental, astral, and spiritual bodies. Teach deepening techniques for meditation and mindfulness, that they can use with their clients and themselves. Adding to a humanistic approach, we introduce new possibilities for exploring relationships on physical and energetic levels with an emphasis of working from the heart and intuition. 

The Team

What SJI students say...

"…I would like to applaud Don Massat for his efforts in bringing about a continued awareness of the capabilities that physical beings possess when they open their hearts and trust the Universe. Your connection to the Universe offers you many opportunities to tap into sources of information that will provide you with answers to satisfy your curious mind. No question is too difficult to offer a response which will open doors to many possibilities and lead you to an expansive place which allows availability to everyone. Endless information keeps alive the desire to know, wonder and search in ways that may seem unconventional to most yet offers Truth – plain and simple."

What is CranioSacral Therapy?

The craniosacral system includes the brain, the cerebrospinal fluid, the system of membranes inside the cranium, all 22 cranial bones, the spine and the sacrum. Craniosacral is based in Cranial Osteopathy, in the 1930s by an American osteopath (Bone Doctor) and visionary called William Garner Sutherland. Sutherland used his training paired with this intuition to heal. By making small subtle shifts in the body (muscles, fluids, bones, cerebral fluid, etc.; the body can heal from the inside out and return to it's natural rhythm. 

Craniosacral therapy is a gentle, non-invasive, hands-on healing modality that focuses on the wave-like rhythmic pulse that goes through the entire body. This therapy stems from osteopathy, which is an approach that emphasizes the role of the musculoskeletal system in health and disease. CranioSacral Therapy releases restrictions around the brain and spinal cord, thus allowing our body to self-heal and self-correct. There are no side affects from CranioSacral Therapy; the practitioner creates a loving and safe environment for the client to begin their self-healing process. 

The Cranial Sacral wave is an intelligent form of communication, just as informative as the radial pulse is to the acupuncturist. It is one way that the soul has to express its views. A cranial therapist is trained to “palpate”, or feel with his or her hands, the motion of the Cranial Sacral system as a unified, integrated movement. The touch is extremely gentle and sensitive, and one is able to diagnose the movement of the system as a whole by locating critical points of restriction in the cranium.

Restrictions which result from injury, inflexibility of the joints of the spine and cranium, or from dysfunctions in other parts of the body can cause abnormal motion in the Cranial Sacral system. The abnormal motion leads to stresses in the cranial mechanism which can contribute to dysfunction and poor health, especially in the brain and spinal cord. The purpose of Cranial Sacral therapy is to enhance the functioning of this important system.
