Craniosacral is an elegant and powerful modality that works with the Central Nervous System, the very center of the body. It was created by osteopathic doctors and is focused on healthy bone alignment and mobility. By gently releasing the tissues around the skull, spine, and pelvis, the entire body is able to fully relax and repair itself.
It is a hands-on technique that is gentle and safe for new born babies, as well as for mothers during pregnancy, birth, and postpartum. It helps to align the bones of the pelvis and support all the physical, emotional, and mental changes of having a new baby.
A typical session begins with discussing your goals, any current issues and any pertinent history. We may begin with some meditation to quiet our minds and arrive in the space together and then proceed with some hands on bodywork. You can lay on the massage table with loose clothing or undress to your comfort level. I love to incorporate movement to unwind joints and tissues, and increase awareness of the sensations of the body.
For babies, Craniosacral is an amazing tool that can help with infant colic, breastfeeding issues, digestion, sleep, turning the head to just one side, fussiness, developmental issues and so much more!
For baby and kid sessions toys and books can be incorporated. Your child can feel free to move however they want and I will follow. Feel free to breastfeed during the session as this is fabulous for aligning the bones of the skull. I have a studio in my home with some toys and books and am also happy to do house calls for babies and postpartum moms.
RATES: In order to make this work accessible I use a sliding scale of $60-$120 for adult sessions. Sessions are 90 minutes. A baby session typically lasts 40 minutes to an hour and the cost is a sliding scale of $50-$80.
