Licensed Massage Therapist

specializing in Craniosacral Therapy integrated with holistic spiritual energy healing.

My methodology is based on intuitively and energetically, which also determines other methods or tools I may use in this particular session.

Tools used may include stones, tones, music, chants, saging. This will be discussed during consultation. 

What is craniosacral therapy

Craniosacral therapy (CST) is a gentle hands-on treatment that may provide relief from a variety of symptoms including headaches, neck pain and side effects of cancer treatment among many others.

CST uses a light touch to examine membranes and movement of fluids in and around the central nervous system. Relieving tension in the central nervous system promotes a feeling of well-being by eliminating pain and boosting health and immunity.

The focus of CST is a gentle placement of hands to assist release of the body’s connective tissue, or “fascia.” Fascia (Latin word for “band”) is a covering found throughout the body including organs, glands, nerves, muscles, blood vessels, brain and spinal cord. This covering forms a body-wide connective network. CST is based on the idea that the body is interrelated at all levels.

CST is thought to improve efficiency of biological processes through boosting inherent self-regulation, self-correction and self-healing. The therapy can be used successfully with children and adults.

  • What can I expect from a craniosacral therapy (CST) session?

  • A CST session is similar to massage therapy, except you stay fully clothed.

  • The treatment session begins with a consultation to identify troubled areas. Soft music and low lighting are often used to increase your state of relaxation.

  • I use gentle pressure techniques to assess the existence of possible disruptions and/or restrictions in your fascial system. Light touch and fascial release may help your muscles and organs naturally relieve stress, which improves function. Other patients often report feeling a sense of deep relaxation.

  • As an intuitive Healer I may also use chakra balancing / healing assisting to release current, past and ancestral trauma.

  • Is craniosacral therapy right for everyone?

  • CST can benefit almost everyone. With a few conditions, however, craniosacral therapy may not be appropriate and you’ll need to talk with your CST practitioner and physician.

  • Your session needs to wait if you have experienced any of the following and have NOT been released for treatment by your physician:

  • Recent concussion.

  • Cerebral swelling.

  • Structural defects in the cerebellum such as Arnold-Chiari malformation.

  • Brain aneurysm.

  • Traumatic brain injury.

  • Blood clots.

  • Any disorder that causes instability of cerebral fluid pressure, flow or build-up.
