As of this April we are now 5 years old! We seriously can't thank you enough because without you and your support there is no way we could have come this far! We are truly honored that you have chosen us and thank you, from the bottom of our hearts, for partonizing the Center and for referring your friends and family to us! You have no idea how much you enrich our lives and how grateful we are that we can practice our vocations in the charming little neighborhood of West Asheville. Thank You!
I have been a CranioSacral Therapist and licensed bodywork practitioner since 2003. I offer clients a combination of medical and energy techniques, having trained extensively in both contemporary bodywork modalities and traditional energy healing. I also worked as a professional dancer which gave me extensive experience working with the functioning of the body, plus sensitivity to emotion and body languaging, important tools in theater. These experiances allow me to “read” subtle information through clients’ postures and gestures, giving me insights I can use to help them release strain patterns and restrictions. I find this is very helpful for effective treatment of adult issues, and especially when I am working with children.
CranioSacral Therapy (CST) is a gentle, hands-on approach that releases tensions deep in the body to relieve pain and dysfunction and improve whole-body health and performance. Every day your body endures stresses and strains that it must work to compensate for. Unfortunately, these changes often cause body tissues to tighten and distort the craniosacral system - the membranes and fluids that surround, protect and nourish the brain and spinal cord. This can create a barrier to the healthy performance of the central nervous system, and potentially every other system it interacts with. With a light touch, the CST practitioner uses her hands to evaluate the craniosacral system by gently feeling various locations of the body to test for the ease of motion and rhythm of the cerebrospinal fluid pulsing around the brain and spinal cord. Soft-touch techniques are then used to release any restrictions, normalizing the environment around the brain and spinal cord to alleviate a wide variety of dysfunctions, from chronic pain and sports injuries to stroke and neurological impairment.
