About Craniosacral Therapies

A holistic and integrated blend to balance the nervous system and activate the vagus nerve for deep relief

What is it?

A holistic and integrated blend to balance the nervous system and help your little one eat, sleep, move and poop better. Pediatric therapies use gentle, noninvasive and hands-on treatment that may provide relief from pain, ameliorate side effects from injuries or surgeries, provide fantastic support for post-tongue tie and encourage the body's own balancing and healing processes.

How it works

It focuses on the gentle placement of hands to help release tension in your baby’s connective tissue. This is known as fascia. Fascia is the Latin word for band. It’s a casing found throughout your body that holds your organs, glands, nerves, muscles, blood vessels, brain and spinal cord. The fascia forms a body-wide connective tissue network with its own 'language', fluid dynamics, nutrient needs and blood flow. A 'snag' in one area can effect the entire system or a distant body part, just as a snag in the hem of your sweater, if pulled, creates a tug, rip or tear in the shoulder or neckline. This ubiquitous tissue is highly innervated and sends a ton of information to your brain, telling you whether you are safe or not, injured or healthy, sick or well, and more. 

Self Healing

The human body is interconnected, both structurally and functionally. This means that one area of your body can affect another. The goal is tension relief (fascial clearance). This may help other connected parts of your body function better. This is why everyone can benefit from this service at least once to balance and correct underlying issues before they become a problem. Once you have a problem or issue, the wisdom of your body can assist in the healing and recovery process to keep you thriving and further your healing.

What is a session like?

The Initial appointment includes a health history and birth-story intake, gentle assessments and treatment. We sometimes work inside the mouth as it helps your baby with feeding, sucking and other issues, speech and proper jaw placement in older children/teens and can relieve tension that contribute to headaches and ear aches. I work with children in many natural everyday positions, such as holding them, cradling them, sitting on my lap, while they are feeding, on parent lap and during play. Not stressing the child is extremely important, therefore there is a 'getting to know me' period. I talk about what I am finding continuously so parent is informed and so parent can assist is ease of movement, if necessary. Children are not made to sit still during an entire treatment. Comfort is king.


View Julia

Julia had already been treated for tongue tie and completed her myotherapy regimen. However, she was in a lot of pain and had great difficulties in latching, eating and sleeping. She cried most of the time. This of course was very difficult for their loving parents. But, with patience and a care plan of 10 treatments, Julia began smiling, eating and sleeping. The family was finally able to relax and enjoy their healthy baby girl! This video was shot about 5 sessions in.

and so, you're wondering...

What makes me different?

Consciously customized

A rich and cohesive blend of sensitively woven, holistic therapies geared towards you, your life challenges and your goals.

Inherent Wisdom

I believe in working with the body, not against it and using your body's own wisdom to enact change on a deeper level that lasts.

Progressive Change

I believe in leveraging the body-mind-spirt to induce natural healing, rightful intention and effortless change. Craniosacral is the perfect avenue to help do that for you.

Shifting Attention

When our nervous system is allowed to shift its attention away from pain and dysfunction, it opens up the possibilities and expands its capacity to heal....from the inside out.
