What is cranial sacral therapy?
- Our minds and bodies are so overstimulated that sometimes they need to be reset.
- This therapy brings the body to a “still point” where we settle into the body, mind, and spirit.
- It’s similar to a computer re-boot. When it’s turned back on, everything is running properly.
Hypnotherapy & Meditation
- Mary defines hypnotherapy: when you dive into the subconscious mind and you shift a programming.
- Meditation is the quieting of the mind.
- She likes to put these two things together by creating a visuliation to make a change.
How do you know if you can benefit from the RISE program?
- Are you feeling like enough is enough?
- Have you thought this just can’t go on?
- Are you truly ready to start to make a change?
What RISE stands for?
- R = Relax. Mary takes you through a progressive deep body relaxation which takes the wall down between the conscious and the subconscious mind.
- I = Imagine. Mary helps you use your senses to visualize a safe space for you to do this work. This is how we learn and change.
- S = Suggest. Going into the subconscious through affirmations, visualization, and anchoring. Mary explains that what we create is how the brain can process and it really understands these stories really quickly.
- E = Empower. Strike your favorite super hero pose. Doing this daily for 120 seconds has been proven to makes shifts both physically and chemically.
Practice makes the process
- It will take some practice to get used to moving yourself through RISE but once you’ve done it and you’re more comfortable with it, you can more easily do this regardless of where you are.

20:45 – “Once you set that intention of I am done, and I want something better. Your body, your mind, and your spirit wants that for you. It’s going to send you there, it’s going to make it happen. But it’s really setting that intention.”
24:09 – “When they start peeling away the layers … they kind of free themselves of that. And by freeing themselves, I really mean by they see it and they accept it and say okay, I have been doing that. But I don’t want to do that anymore. Then again it really, the shift happens pretty quickly.”
