CranioSacral Therapy

What is CranioSacral Therapy (CST)?

CranioSacral Therapy is light-touch and deeply restorative.  

  • CST down regulates the stress response

  • Induces a Theta-wave state in the brain,

  • Has a unique way of releasing trauma from our body's cells, and tissues.

  • Studies show that CranioSacral Therapy eases symptoms of Post Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD).

What to Expect in a Session

As a CranioSacral Therapist, I listen and follow what your body presents.  This is a gentle touch therapy, clients remain full clothed, and lay face up on the table.  

I use my hands lightly to identify and release restrictions that affect the spinal column and central nervous system.  This work is deeply relaxing and restorative.  CST has an amazing ability to peel traumas off the body, without re-traumatizing the person.  

We each have an Inner Wisdom that knows exactly what we need, and how to unwind.  In these session I ask you to remain aware of your body sensations.  I will ask you, "What are you noticing?" You will report primary sensations like hot, cold, tingly, notice a muscle tightening, or digestive rumblings. This sensory level of awareness helps to down regulate the stress response, and bring the body back to homeostasis. 

A CranioSacral Session helps the body re-calibrate, I think of it as de-fragging the hard-drive, and re-booting the system. Some clients experience deep unwinding.  I may make noise on your behalf, or help you to speak to your organs and body parts.  Some clients have dream-like images and knowings. I may use toning or sound as a way to facilitate deeper transformations. 


Healing The Past

On occasion a session may dip into childhood trauma, or what may feel like a past-life, or ancestral healing. Some clients request this depth of intention specifically, others access this energy because it is ready to be looked at, and released.  

Wherever you want to go, or the Inner Wisdom shows us--I am willing to go there with you. These journeys are always safe, and we proceed only with your willingness, and at your comfort level. 

This type of session can be performed in-person or over the phone/video. 

My CranioSacral Story

When I was in my mid-twenties I saw a practitioner that used CranioSacral Therapy. She did intraoral work that blew my mind.  She worked inside my mouth, and I felt like she had molded my face as if it were soft clay. I had to stare into the mirror to see if my cheek bones had widened--if I looked any different.  


Years later, when I became a Manual Therapist I chose CranioSacral Therapy as my preferred way of helping people recover from trauma and heal.
