Relax, feel renewed, and ready to meet the world

Biodynamic Craniosacral Therapy is a gentle, yet powerful form of bodywork that helps process and release long held patterns of physical, psychological, and emotional stress. It embraces your symptoms and unravels what is locked deep within, relaxing, releasing and integrating this into wholeness.

What arises is an incredibly compassionate relationship to your body and mind.

Craniosacral motion (what runs between your skull down to your tailbone) can become restricted or stuck by everyday physical knocks, bumps, poor body mechanics, and accidents. Shock and emotional stress can also cause the body's tissues to contract and tighten up. With very subtle palpation, trained therapists can detect this motion and determine its strength and health; as a result the therapist can identify and release restrictions in the body and help restore the body's vitality.

You may feel the stress and strains held in your body begin to fade away as you start to experience a sense of deep relaxation and better alignment..

Women that I work with often tell me that they no longer feel stuck, drained, or so overwhelmed. Life feels simpler, easier, and sometimes after session, they even feel euphoric. They are less anxious, feel quieter inside, and more motivated in life. They feel less distracted, less indecisive, and more confident.

Craniosacral treatments can help:

  • anxiety and depression
  • allergies, sinusitis, and immune system disorders
  • back pain, frozen shoulder, repetitive strain injuries
  • digestive problems and hormonal imbalances
  • chronic fatigue and fibromyalgia issues
  • problems during and after pregnancy
  • menstrual pain and PMS
  • migraine/headaches/TMJ syndrome
  • dental pain

 

Feel more attuned to your body's needs.

 In session, we'll work together to help you find deeper connections within that restore optimal alignment, and dissolve tension patterns.

Your Craniosacral Session includes

  •  an initial consultation over the phone or via email to determine where to best focus our time together
  • a 45 minute to 60 minute treatment

During your session, you will also learn:

  • how to tune into more of what your body is telling you
  • learn how to re-establish wellbeing through body awareness and better alignment
  • how to deepen your experience of stillness in the body

You'll be able to rest in your clothes on my plush table. Cozy under the uber-soft blanket on top of warmed soft-flannel sheets. I will listen with an open heart and guide you in relaxing and helping your mind to quiet. You are welcome to say anything and everything you need. This is a team effort, and special care is always taken to make sure that you feel completely nurtured. You can talk, not talk, vent, or laugh. It's all invited.

Hi Caitlin, I’m not sure if you remember me, but I came to you once for sciatica. It went away after that session so I didn’t have to come back! I’d love to see what else can be helped.

Here's a Real Success Story:

I was experiencing pain in my right jaw, or the temporomandibular joint as I learned it was called. It started with benign popping of the joint. Then, it escalated into an intense sharp pain when I would open my jaw too wide. This lasted for a few days before it turned into a more general soreness in that area and I enlisted the help of craniosacral therapy. I had tried standard methods of treatment prescribed by my doctor, such as anti-inflammatory drugs, ice, and heat. The craniosacral therapy gave me instantaneous relief. But the benefits went beyond my jaw and it was able to relax my whole body, which I found out was very tense. I was actually able to eat after treatment, whereas before I would have a hard time opening my mouth wide enough for even a sandwich. This became a real issue as I was not getting enough calories. I felt the craniosacral therapy working in the first treatment. I am very pleased with the outcome, and have been back numerous times as I feel progress every time!

Questions and Concerns

How many sessions will I need?

It's important to remember that your healing journey is a process. While some respond very quickly (as in one session), many chronic issues (anxiety, depression, fatigue) or perhaps very stressful times in life require more frequent and continual sessions. On average, clients notice huge shifts in 3-5 sessions.

What exactly is craniosacral therapy? 

Craniosacral therapy (CST) is a holistic therapy that uses light touch to support the release of stress and tension held within the tissues of the body, and promotes the balance of the central nervous system. I use gentle holds that assist the body to balance the bones and tissues that surround the brain and spinal cord.

CST helps to release areas where the muscles are tight and where the joints, fluids, and organs are unable to move freely. It creates an ideal environment for the brain and spinal cord, which allows the nerves to communicate clearly and the body to self-correct and heal. As your nervous system functions better, you may feel more at ease in every aspect of your life, work, body, and relationships.
