Craniosacral therapy

Craniosacral therapy (CST) is a gentle, light-touch treatment that enhances the body's own natural healing processes to optimize alignment and restore balance to the nervous system. 

How does it work?

  • Use of gentle hand pressure applied to  specific points on body to manipulate the skeleton and free up restrictions in the cranial bones, sacrum (tailbone region) and associated soft tissue of the body to make changes from inside-out

  • Releases blockages in tissues, blood or spinal fluid flow to optimize alignment and restore natural healing process

  • Promotes nervous system regulation and stress resilience by stimulating the parasympathetic nervous system ("rest & digest") to balance out an overactive sympathetic response ("fight or flight")

Who can benefit from this ?

  • Infants: Difficulty calming or fussy baby, torticollis, birth trauma, plagiocephaly, tongue tie or oral restriction, breastfeeding difficulties

  • Adults: migraines, headaches, sinus pressure, chronic back pain, trauma or impact injuries from car accidents/falls, anxiety, TMJ pain/dysfunction, 

Vagus Nerve Reset/Rebalancing

The vagus nerve is one of the most important nerves in our bodies that regulates our stress and inflammatory response. It controls heart/breathing rate, aids in proper digestion and production of stomach acid, and promotes overall sense of relaxation and abilaity to handle stress or anxiety. In our current culture it is often dysregulated in most people and underutilized causing low vagal tone. 

 

How does it work? 

  • Targeted manual resets of both segments of the vagus nerve to promote increased tone and activation resulting in improved resilience to ongoing stressors. 

  • Assessment of vagal tone

  • Education on home exercises to stimulate/activate the vagus nerve and appropriate progressions. 

 

Who can benefit from this?  

Anyone who deals with: anxiety, difficulty sleeping, irritable bowel, constipation/diarrhea, chronic pain or inflammation , autoimmune diseases, treatment modalities (chiro, massage) aren't "holding" and symptoms return soon after sessions.

Bodywork & Babies

Incorporating both fascial and cranial work to promote an open posture for baby to optimize feeding, reduce strain in the body resulting in optimal milestone development, . Includes both work off and at the breast to release fascial strain and nervous system dysregulation from positioning in utero, birth trauma, tight oral tissues causing a closed or tight body position.

How does it work?

  • Identify and release fascial strain in the infant's body through gentle release techniques to promote optimal posture and alignment

  • Fascial connection of the tongue reaches all the way down to the toes, therefore working strain out of body can improve tongue function for feeding

  • The jaw and the pelvis/hips mirror each other and opening the front of the body from the hips>jaw/mouth can promote increased oral function, allow jaw decompression to achieve better latch and tongue function to optimize transfer from breast or bottle

  • Promote cranial decompression and nervous system regulation to encourage organization of suck, swallow, breathe.

 

Who can benefit from this? 

  • Moms experiencing pain/discomfort with breastfeeding, poor latch, low supply, fussy at the breast, popping on/off the breast, hands getting in way at the breast or during bottle feeding

  • Infants demonstrating head/neck preference, flattening or mishappen head, moving one side of body more than another, difficulty with diaper changes, colic, reflux, gas, constipation, poor sleep, open mouth while sleeping

 

Lymphatic Mobilization/Drainage

Lymphatic session includes full body assessment and both mobilization/drainage of the common lymphatic "choke" points in the body where toxins and lymph flow gets stuck or stagnant. 

 

How does it work?

  • Much like an aquarium has a filter system to clean the tank, our body has its own filtration system called or lymphatic system. It acts to remove toxic build up in our bodies from the food we eat, water we drink and environment we are exposed to. When our lymphatic system gets backed up (much like a fish tank or aquarium) it lookanual assessment and mobilization of common lymph choke points to include: neck, collarbone, abdomen, groin and posterior knee. May also include targeted head/neck draining, brain drain or glymphatic mobilization, organ mobilization to improve fluid flow and release stagnant build-up of toxins causing inflammation and chronic pain

  • It also aids in increasing the blood flow to the treated areas and drain excessive fluids and toxins.

  • Education on specialized, self-mobilization techniques to perform at home

   

Who can benefit from this?

Anyone with chronic aches/pains in muscles or joints. Those people that don't tolerate supplements or medications well or have difficulty detoxing, sinus congestion, swollen or painful lymph nodes, swelling or puffiness anywhere in the body but especially overlooked in abdomen, sternum or collarbones. Brain fog/headaches and any autoimmune disorders.
