craniosacral therapy(CST)

$80/ 60 min

CraniosSacral therapy is gentle and extremely effective for people of all ages, from infants to adults. It is a gentle method of relieving pressure and compression in the soft tissues of the body, and facilitates the flow of cerebrospinal fluid, which is produced in the brain and circulates throughout the body, mostly in the head, neck, and spine. A CranioSacral session has positive effects on the nervous system, lymphatic system, and connective tissues, helping to balance the body as a whole.

CranioSacral is a modality of bodywork performed by using a very light touch, over clothes. The practitioner works with the cerebral spinal fluid, nervous system, cranial bones and sutures, as well as the fascia of the entire body. The practitioner encourages the body’s innate ability to balance, restore, and heal while the body is in a relaxed and open state.

newborn Craniosacral (cst)

$60/ office visit $100/ home visit

Sometimes the birth experience can imprint many hard to detect impacts on a small body. Using a very light and subtle touch, I create space for your little one to balance, restore, heal, and integrate the world around them at their own pace, in a relaxed and open state. By allowing your little one's body to get back into balance, the nervous system, lymphatic system, and the connective tissue work together in harmony.
