My cat, Munchkin, was a ball of fire as a kitten. She was super playful, hyperactive, played fetch for hours, chased the other kittens until they’d had enough and then chased them some more. She was a lot of fun but it was clear that something wasn’t normal. She was jittery, looking in all directions at once, the slightest noise would make her jump up from a deep sleep. She never seemed to fully relax and was always meowing about something or nothing. Since she was so small it was nothing but fun and games and we didn’t question it, we thought it was just kittenly behaviour that would subside with time.
My scepticism was immediately squashed. The changes that Craniosacral Therapy massage had created in my cat were immediate and profound, and since there is no placebo effect with a 2 month old kitten I could not deny what I was seeing with my own eyes. A few days later I let my wife give me my first session of CST and I have never looked back.
I have given several sessions to Munchkin since that time and each time there is a noticeable change in her demeanour. She becomes calmer and more present and the intense stare lessens. She gets more affectionate and seems happier and less neurotic with each session. This is exactly the same progress that my clients report back to me as their treatment continues.
