CranioSacral Therapy / Somatic Emotional Release
CranioSacral Therapy is a gentle method of detection and correction through gentle holds that encourages your body to naturally correct any imbalance and / or restrictions. These imbalances could include chronic pain and fatigue, emotional difficulties, accumulated stress, TMJ dysfunction, migraines, neck and back pain, infantile disorders, learning disabilities and other health challenges. A session could also benefit your overall health and resistance to disease.
About Your Session
A CranioSacral Therapy session is performed on a person fully clothed. Debbie will use a light touch, no more than the weight of a nickel. She will monitor the CranioSacral rhythm to detect any restrictions and imbalances. Listening to the movements of the body and the rhythm, Debbie will use light delicate manual techniques to assist the body in correcting itself.
Debbie has received all of her training through the Upledger Institute where she is recognized as an Advanced Practitioner Ill. She is also qualified to be a Teaching Assistant for the Institute. Please visit the Upledger website for all of the courses she has completed.
Aquatic CranioSacral Therapy is a craniosacral session in a heated pool. Debbie has trained in many Aquatic CranioSacral classes. It provides the same healing benefits of a CranioSacral Session but without the limitations of the table. Ask Debbie for more information.

CranioSacral Therapy For Children
Craniosacral Therapy is beneficial to people of all ages, especially infants and children. Childbirth can be a challenge for both mother and child. In an ideal vaginal birth, the baby's skull is compressed as it passes through the birth canal. This is a normal healthy process, helping to stimulate the cranial pump and to mold the skull. Within 10 days the baby's cranium becomes symmetrical and balanced.
However there are times when Cesarean-sections, suctioning and forceps are necessary aids during a challenging birth. This can place stresses on the cranium bones and may prevent the cranium from normalizing. CranioSacral Therapy is a light touch, no more than the weight of a nickle. A trained therapist in CranioSacral Therapy for pediatrics can help the baby's cranium become balanced. It can also assist in colic, nursing, torticollis, and other difficulties newborns may experience.
