they would like to improve their existing Health, or need
to create more ease and mobility, less pain or stress,
recover from injury, trauma and/or balance the
system. Craniosacral therapy has been found to be effective
for all ages and many unbalanced conditions including chronic
pain, sensory processing disorders and memory loss.
Craniosacral can also enhance the creative work of
artists, writers, performers, and students' learning. Moms
and babies, children, teens and adults benefit
greatly from craniosacral therapy to restore the body to its
best potential. Older people often find more energy
In difficult times craniosacral therapy can foster deep relaxation and stress resolution, allowing the
healthy as well as compromised system to move toward better
potential and ease.
I just feel so
much better after easing up in a session. J.T.
often need support in their rapid growth and
changes, physically and emotionally. Many circumstances for
teens are overwhelming and difficult and support can be key in
getting through and enjoying young years. In my work with
young people as a teacher, especially in Theatre, I knew that
they often felt as if they carried a huge weight on their
shoulders, thinking that they could solve the problems of the
world--it can be a wonderful and fearful time....and then
there's always the burden and thrill of romance. School is
demanding and extra activities-sports, the arts, all leave

With mothers and babies,
craniosacral is outstanding in alleviating many conditions
related to pregnancy,
delivery and postpartum.
And in a great optimum birth, all levels of the birth process
are eased with craniosacral help and support. A perfect
combination is to have a Doula, a craniosacral therapist, and
perhaps an acupuncturist (to more naturally ease pain)
involved during the actual birth. After the baby is born, both
mom and child can hugely benefit from balancing their systems
with CST. see Biodynamic and
