❝In my early professional years, I was asking the question: How can I treat, or cure, or change this person? Now I would phrase the question in this way: How can I provide a relationship which this person may use for his own personal growth?❞

Craniosacral therapy

Discover the healing power of gentle touch.

CranioSacral Therapy is a treatment that releases tension in the body by focusing on the CranioSacral system (the tissues and fluid that protect your brain and spinal cord) to relieve tightness and restriction that can have a negative impact on your central nervous system. Clients remain fully clothed and lay on a massage table, while delicate manual techniques, no more than a 5 gram load (the weight of a nickel) are used to find and release problem areas while restoring the rhythm and flow of cerebrospinal fluid.

CranioSacral therapy can improve the function of the ventral branch of the vagus nerve and heal problems that are a result of chronic hyperarousal (sympathetic over-activation) or dorsal-vagal shutdown and dysfunction.

CranioSacral therapy has been shown to naturally reduce pain and stress, strengthen your resistance to disease, and enhance your health and well-being. Clients often report feelings of deep relaxation and restoration following treatment.

The following are some of the conditions that CranioSacral Therapy can help with:

    • Migraines and Headaches
    • Fibromyalgia
    • Chronic Fatigue
    • Stress and Tension-related Disorders
    • Chronic Neck and Back Pain
    • Anxiety and Depression
    • PTSD
    • TMJ
    • Post-Concussion Symptoms
    • Motor-Coordination Impairments
