-reduces the effects of stress
-is an effective pain reducer
-is great for maintaining overall health
I can help chronic pain sufferers, those with aches and pains associated with work, computer use, fibromyalgia, and migraines.
I can help children establish freedom from body restrictions with Craniosacral Therapy which will help them be calmer, better listeners, and more successful in school.
Make bodywork part of your proactive health plan. Don’t wait until pain overwhelms you or you lose motion. If you are intersted in craniosacral therapy for yourself or your family, I am happy to help in any way I can. Love and health, Monica

MODALITY MINUTE: “What is it that Craniosacral Therapy does??”

CranioSacral Therapy is especially useful when a light and gentle touch is absolutely essential. CST aims to compliment the mainstream medical support that you are receiving with a treatment that is both gentle and effective.
Receiving regular treatment exposes “layers” that have developed throughout life and slowly peels away, just as one would peel away layers of an onion. One may find pain relief while other experience release of emotions that have been uncomfortably housed within the soft tissue.

It is highly effective in natural conditions such as:

Infants and Children

Childhood conditions (even if lingering into the adult years) such as:

Down’s Syndrome
Misshapen heads and overrides
Traumatic birth and Caesarian birth
Braces/Dental intervention
SI Dysfunction

Specific temporary conditions such as:

Back and Neck Pain

Longer-term conditions such as managing the support of:

Cerebral Palsy
Chronic Back Pain
