Craniosacral therapy



Craniosacral Therapy (CST) is a gentle, light-touch treatment which enhances the body's natural healing ability by optimizing alignment and promoting relaxation of the nervous system and related tissues.

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

  • Children/Adults: migraines, headaches, seasonal allergies, 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.

Craniosacral Fascial Therapy (CFT): The Gillepse Approach

Craniosacral Fascial Therapy (CFT) is a blend of two established modalities of Craniosacral and Myofascial release therapy along with dental techniques. CFT is based on the theory that the craniosacral and the fascial systems are not separate but interconnected. Due to engaging the fascial system, CFT uses a slightly deeper touch than traditional CST to engage the fascial barrier and the principles of fascial unwinding. 

How does it work?

  • Identify and release fascial strain in the body through gentle release techniques to promote optimal posture and alignment and improve cranial motion. 

  • 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 in infants with oral restriction. 

  • 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 caused by fascial strain and nervous system regulation to encourage organization of suck, swallow, breathe as well as improved mood, sleep. 


Who can benefit from this? 

  • Adults: headaches, migraines, concussion, TMJ, oral restrictions, back/neck pain, digestive issues, hip pain, sinus conditions, anxiety/depression, sleep issues/airway, whiplash, scars.

  • Children: Asthma, earache, chronic ear infections, concussion, ADHD/ADD, learning disorders, sinus conditions, anxiety, neck pain, digestive issues, bedwetting, headache, scoliosis. 

  • Infants: Birth trauma, oral restrictions (tongue tie/lip tie), torticollis, head asymmetry, colic, reflux, gas, constipation, inability to latch, difficulty sucking, difficulty sleeping, earache, general fussiness.


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.
