What is Craniosacral Therapy?
The craniosacral system consists of the membranes and fluid that surrounds and nourishes the Central Nervous System ie: the brain and spinal cord. Craniosacral Therapy uses these membranes and fluid to identify and release restrictions deep in the body. The fascia( the connective tissue that surrounds every muscle, organ, nerve, ect, from superficial to deep) is also worked with in this treatment. This therapy is thought to facilitate self healing mechanisms in the body and boost immune system function.

What to expect in a session.
Similar to a traditional massage the lights will be dim and soft music playing to help promote relaxation. Unlike traditional massage you will remain fully clothed and I ask for clients to wear comfortable athletic wear. We will start with a consultation to identify goals and focus areas for the session.
During the session it is important to relax your mind and focus on your breath and things your body may be telling you. You are free to share with me what you are experiencing or you may keep it to yourself. I will be using light touch at specific areas from your feet to your head. Sometimes I might have to sandwich the areas between both my hands or move your extremities.
Everyone experience is different and you could feel things physically, emotionally, both or neither or experience past memories. Deep relaxation is most commonly reported.
