What is the Cranial-Sacral Pulse?
The Cranial-Sacral Pulse is the 3rd dynamic and important pulse in our body that many people don’t even realize we have. The first, most well-known, cardiovascular pulse, typically beats 72 times per minute. The second, also familiar, respiratory pulse, averages 16-18 breaths per minute. The third, cranial-sacral pulse, cycles around 8-12 times per minute. It is believed to be the first expression of life in the central core of our body on a cellular level, also referred to as “The Breath of Life.” This pulse can be felt in all of the bones in the cranium, face, sacrum and ankles as they are constantly moving, “pulsing.” The Cranial-Sacral Pulse conveys a wealth of information about the brain and spinal cord, its surrounding membranes and tissues, the cerebral spinal fluid, energetic patterns of stored trauma and overall physical and emotional conditions. Full and balanced rhythms to this pulse can support optimum health and expression of life force in your body & mind.

“Know your anatomy and physiology, but when you get your hands on a person’s body, never forget that a living soul dwells therein.”
~Dr. A.T. Still, DO
“At one point I felt a second set of hands on me.”
“Felt great! You really moved something. I feel great energy within! You got a magic touch. Thanks. When you said I would be in your prayers that night & it would integrate throughout my sleep cycle, I know I sent a funny reply, but I could NOT believe how well I slept. It was awesome!”
“I really enjoyed our session together. Your touch is caring, kind and soothing. I felt a lot of unwinding in my neck, shoulders and head. Thank you Rebecca. I would like another session with you.”

“How do I explain CST in a word? Bliss.
It’s like the brief moment at the end of a yoga class when you’re laying in Savasana and the instructor lightly places his/her hands on your shoulders, feet or head. The simple touch feels so amazing and you don’t want it to end. However, in CST it’s an entire session of that feeling and leaves you completely rel…axed and floating through the rest of your day.
How do I explain Rebecca Blake in a word? Healer.
I was fortunate enough to spend a weekend in Yosemite with this amazing woman for a yoga retreat. She was one of the most experienced yoga instructors I’ve ever learned from, but it wasn’t just her teaching skills that sets her apart from the rest. She has truly found her passion in what she does and projects so much positivity and encouragement through to her students. She is able to see the good in everything and it shines through in her teachings and healings.
The brief session of CST I had with her was one of the most relaxing half hours of my life. Initially I was skeptical because it appears to be such a simple practice. I’m a difficult person to completely relax and I wondered if this would have an affect on me. Rebecca makes her students feel so comfortable and her ability to open people up to new experiences is a true gift. Almost immediately upon starting the session, I had that blissful Savasana feeling and my entire body relaxed. Even being outdoors and surrounded by numerous distractions, I was able to find a completely meditative state. If a brief session can have that much impact on a person, I have no doubt that regular CST sessions with Rebecca hold real healing powers for anyone.”
