I provide CranioSacral Therapy for people and horses to relieve tension and fascial restrictions. This helps the body self-correct, balance and improve overall well-being, comfort and function.
A light-touch, whole-body treatment technique developed by Dr. John E. Upledger, DO, OMM in the 1970's during his research at Michigan State University. This gentle therapy works with the craniosacral system (the semi-closed hydraulic system composed of the dural membranes which envelop the brain and spinal cord and enclose the cerebral spinal fluid) to release tension in connective tissue and balance the central nervous system thus improving overall health and well-being. It is a complementary method of hands-on bodywork which gently addresses the natural and unique rhythms of the different body systems to find and address problem sources. CST helps to alleviate the aches, pains and strains of life; improves coping mechanisms to allow for better management of stress. It improves the body’s ability to self-correct and can produce profound, positive changes. More information can be found at http://www.upledger.com.

Massage Therapy: I provide an individualized relaxing therapeutic massage utilizing light to medium pressure with the intention of gently coaxing out tension and stress. I integrate Swedish, gentle pressure point and acupressure techniques to bring balance, wellness and mind/body awareness.
Cupping: use of suction cups to soften tight muscles, lift connective tissue, remove congestion and increase blood flow. This is a gentle, relaxing way to accomplish deep tissue work without pain. May leave a temporary discoloration on the skin due to toxins and old blood being brought to the surface.
