Your body holds deep wisdom. Trust in it. Learn from it. Watch your life transform and be healthy.

What is CranioSacral Therapy


    CranioSacral Therapy (CST) is a light-touch approach that can create dramatic improvements in your life. It releases tension deep in the body to relieve pain and dysfunction and improve whole-body health and performance.

    Few body structures have more influence over your health and well-being than your central nervous system. And few body systems have more impact on your central nervous system than the craniosacral system - the soft tissues and fluid that protect your brain and spinal cord.

    Every day you endure stresses and strains and your body absorbs them. But your body can only handle so much tension before the tissues begin to tighten and potentially affect the brain and spinal cord.

    Unfortunately, this can compromise the function of the central nervous system - and the performance of nearly every other system in your body.

CranioSacral Therapy releases those tensions to allow the entire body to relax and self-correct. Using a gentle touch I evaluate your internal environment. Then use distinct light touch techniques to release any restrictions I find.

    By freeing the central nervous system to perform at it's best, CST naturally eliminates pain and stress, strengthens your resistance to disease and enhances your health and well-being.

    And because it's so gentle, CranioSacral Therapy can be effective for all ages, from newborns to elders.

"In the end only three things matter: how much you loved, how gently you lived, and how gracefully you let go of things not meant for you."


When you are comfortable with both your strengths and your weaknesses, you radiate simple unaffected humanity. Self acceptance, total self acceptance, means self-forgiveness. When you forgive yourself and stop judging yourself, then you won't judge others, and there will be less conflict in the world.

CranioSacral Therapy
Mind Body Stress and Trauma Therapy

Stress is something we each experience and cope with in our own unique way based on prior experience and what has been molded for us.  

A stress response, which can be experienced in our body, thoughts, or feelings, is a sign that there is something happening in our life that needs recognition and support.  

Even if the stressors are no longer present in our body, the mind can hold on to the stress response, creating a loop day in and day out. 

In response to stress, our body creates patterns of tightness, restriction, negative beliefs, self talk, discomfort and dis-ease can emerge and become automatic ways of thinking, behaving and being in the world.  

Similarly, trauma, which can come from a perceived life threat or an overwhelming amount of stress, can restrict clear thinking and attention, emotions, and psychological vitality.  

By compassionately addressing patterns of stress and trauma stored within the body, you can regain a sense of energy and well-being, expand your resilience, and learn negotiation skills for future stressors.  

In our sessions together we will utilize various techniques including Steps To A Release which directly influences the part of the brain that connects your triggers to the fight or flight response, mindfulness visualization techniques, Theta Healing, Heart Centered Therapy, Divine Energetics, Reiki, among other scientifically and spiritually informed practices. In this way, we will work towards healing physical and emotional pain, stress, and trauma.     

CranioSacral Therapy is a gentle, hands-on method of evaluating and enhancing the functioning of a physiological body system called the craniosacral system - comprised of the membranes and cerebrospinal fluid that surround and protect the brain and spinal cord.

Using a soft touch I release restrictions in the craniosacral system to improve the functioning of the central nervous system.

CranioSacral Therapy for


Gentle hands on techniques facilitate the unwinding of areas of compression and misalignment that can occur with assisted delivery, encouraging the release of stress and associated emotions from birth trauma. 


The bones of the head and spine can be compressed and twisted causing a disturbance in the nerves at the back of the neck creating tension in their whole body as well as vital areas such as baby's gut, causing colicky symptoms.


After a CranioSacral session your baby's body can start to soften and relax. With pressure and tension gone, necessary space in the brain and body can return; room is freed for natural growth and functioning, and your baby's health and wellbeing can be much improved.
