"Craniosacral Therapy is a very gentle, light touch approach that releases tensions in the Central Nervous System so that every other system in the body can relax, self correct and free itself of pain and discomfort." ~Sharon Desjarleis
Chronic headaches? Muscles always tight? Back pain? Body feel "crooked" or "off"? Anxiety or depression? Craniosacral Therapy (CST) can address these and so many more symptoms that arise in the body. In fact, since CST simply focuses on removing the barriers blocking your thriving self, the results are endless....
When tight and blocked, the organs and tissues are deprived of the body's natural healing mechanisms - cardiovascular (nutrients), the nervous system (communication), energetic (life force and communication) and lymphatic (waste removal). When these areas release, these functions are restored.
I use intuition and let the hands "listen" to the tissues because the body has its own rhythm and needs when healing. Scientific discoveries have given us many sign posts, but we still know very little about the body. At times a tense or misaligned area may need to dive farther into its unhealthy expression to fully release - like a child having a tantrum - the body has finally "said" what it needs to say and can finally relax - for good - relieving the chronic and cyclical recurrence of a misalignment.
From a deep meditative place, I "listen" to the tissues and energy fields and respond energetically through touch. I often find acupressure points intuitively or connect two points on the body that need more communication. I hold the space for your body to unwind and release from a place of great respect and humility at the body's natural healing ability.

I have trained with the Upledger Institute in Craniosacral Therapy and also with various other methods and teachers such as Intuitive Energy Healing and Reiki. My own explorations with yoga, meditation and mindfulness are integrated into my sessions as well.
*** Please note that I am NOT a massage therapist, physical therapist nor a medical doctor of any sort.
What you can expect from a session:
I offer sessions at my studio or I can come to your house if you are unable to come to me. For young children it can work better to work on them while they sleep, so I could travel to you.
As part of your session, I will also offer any relevant complementary health suggestions such as yoga poses, herbs, "home remedies", healing foods, Ayurveda, homeopathy and meditation/mindfulness/relaxation techniques.
You remain fully clothed during the session and lie on your back on a massage table. I apply light touch at several places on the body and respond with very subtle, light pressure and energetic intention for release or movement.
Each session's time may vary slightly (the price will remain the same). Allow for a session to last up to 10 minutes longer and another 5 to transition out of the session. Also please allow for some time in your schedule following a session to "recalibrate". Best results come from being able to go home immediately after. You may feel too relaxed to do anything else!
