What exactly is Craniosacral Therapy?!

The body holds onto trauma, and CST supports the body to let go of it. Sounds wonderful, right? Because it is.

Craniosacral is a very gentle touch therapy that uses subtle and slow techniques to not only find areas of tension in the body, but also to release them. This tension can cause chronic pain, uncomfortable symptoms and anxiety. 

Learn craniosacral therapy so you can help children, teens, adults and even your loved ones to process and release this tension so they can be more comfortable in their body.

You see how tight a baby is,
but what can you do?

Craniosacral is the most effective way for you to help loosen up those super tense babies, so parents can finally relax and enjoy their newborn.

You really can make a living cuddling babies and changing lives.
