CranioSacral Work For Joy Matalon Has ‘Deepened’ During Covid
For Joy Matalon a CranioSacral therapist and licensed massage therapist, the past year has been a time of professional growth. Now she’s incorporating what she’s learned, particularly Biodynamic CranioSacral Therapy, into her Ossining practice.
“My work has deepened during the pandemic,” she says. “I’ve had the opportunity to study with a few different mentors who have helped me to access a level of awareness where I am connecting with the pattern of health in and around the body. Once I identify this pattern of health, I can support the nervous system in returning to balance.”
CranioSacral Therapy, or CST, helps us develop intimacy with the parts of ourselves that through stress or trauma have become unconscious, Matalon says.
“It is in these unconscious parts of ourselves that healing happens,” she says. “In each session, my hands help you to experience your body in the moment, creating a pathway to physical well-being and inner peace.”
She’s found that several conditions respond well to CST, including anxiety, depression, headaches and migraines, TMJ, tinnitus, autoimmune disorders, and back and neck pain.
Personal safety continues to be a priority for Matalon, who is fully vaccinated and says her regular clients are too.
“I am still wearing a mask and require clients to do so as well,” she says. “I have a HEPA filter, and I clean and open windows for 30 minutes between each session.”
