Investing in massage is an investment in your health.

Craniosacral Therapy is done fully clothed, and is renowned for its relaxing, gentle technique and profoundly therapeutic results. Every trauma is stored in the tissue of the body, and that is what CST helps to release. Working with the parasympathetic and sympathetic nervous systems and the deepest tissue of the body, it helps you bring back balance to promote healing in cases as varied as fibromyalgia, sciatica, TMJ, post traumatic stress disorder, traumatic brain injury, migraines, and many others. Every session is different as the trauma is released in layers until the root of the problem is found. It assists healing in both chronic and acute injuries. It also simply promotes general well-being and relaxation. It is an excellent therapy for all ages, and can work wonders with children, as birth trauma is one of the most traumatic events of our lifetimes.
