What to Expect

Adults

Your session will begin with a brief discussion of CranioSacral Therapy and your goals for treatment. When we are ready for treatment, you will remain fully clothed, removing any glasses, shoes, belt and cumbersome jewelry. Usually adults begin a session laying face-up on the treatment table. Accommodations are made for clients with difficulty lying down or lying flat. It is important that you feel comfortable and safe.

 

As therapeutic touch begins, you will feel light pressure (about the weight of a nickel) at various places on the surface of your body from head to toe.  After a brief whole-body assessment we will settle into the therapeutic process. As the therapy begins to support the nervous system, you may begin to feel deeply relaxed or may become aware of various sensations throughout the body.  It is possible to experience emotions spontaneously rising to the surface, or images fleeting through your mind. Some sessions are done in virtual silence while others may involve talking. Depending on many variables, dialogue techniques may be used to deepen the therapeutic process.

By regularly monitoring the CranioSacral rhythm and gently inviting releases, the therapy helps facilitate your body’s natural healing process. As the therapist, I must not have an agenda for your therapeutic process, but rather follow the innate wisdom of your body.

Sessions are 60 minutes of hands-on treatment.  Please allow 75 minutes for your first session so we may discuss the therapy and your goals for treatment. 

There is no distinction between CranioSacral and SomatoEmotional Release sessions.  Each session begins with basic CranioSacral techniques.  SomatoEmotional techniques are utilized as appropriate, depending on your presentation  at any given session. 

 

Infants & Children

Pediatric sessions are loosely structured, allowing little ones and their family members to feel safe, secure and supported. Depending on mobility, we may work on foam tiles on the floor, allowing for moving about in whatever way feels appropriate. Some toys reside at the treatment space, and it is always encouraged to bring favorite toys to help kiddos stay engaged during the session.

 

Caretakers are always encouraged to attend sessions. Because the effects of bonds between child and caregiver are far-reaching, it is beneficial to treat caregivers as part of the child’s process, either during the same session or in a separate adult session. Sleeping toddlers and babies in arms can be treated on the table alongside a caregiver.

 

Taking into account many variables, teenagers may choose to be treated without a chaperone present in the treatment room, based on the comfort level of the teen, the caregiver and the therapist.

 
 

TESTIMONIALS

Owen was only able to crawl a few feet at the time we started craniosacral therapy and after the second treatment, he was able to crawl all around the living room. His distance and speed with crawling have continued to improve. We have also noticed improved mood, sleep, and appetite. Lastly, craniosacral has helped him vocalize more sounds and words. Thank you very much Patricia.

Josh, Father of Owen / Cerbral Palsy

“I really realized the correlation between trauma and how my body reacts to trauma. My mind holds memories. My physical body holds memories too, down to the cellular level, really. I go back to [the symbol of] the bottle. The cork was almost taken off.  A bunch of pressure was moved or shifted. I was able to talk about a lot of thigs all in one session. Normally the access to those things, the lid is on too tight. I really think facing a lot of things I haven’t thought about in a long time has to do with not sleeping and depression. On the flip side, I feel more at peace though, than I have in a long time."

A.S. / SUBSTANCE USE DISORDER

“After a car accident I enlisted the services of Patricia to assist in my recovery .Her work was critical in helping me regain my mobility.  Thank you Patricia!"

K.M.S. /ORTHOPEDIC INJURIES

“It wasn't long before I realized how intuitive, patient, and caring she is and I gladly received her suggestions for improved health as I was struggling through my chemotherapy treatments.  She is a wonderful listener and I felt safe and comfortable in the space she created.  Each session was a growing, healing experience and well worth the time, effort, and money that was spent. "

KIM / CANCER

“I was involved in rear-end collision.  I thought I had escaped injury, until after a few days I was experiencing vertigo.  After two sessions with Patricia my vertigo was gone.  Patricia also helped ease the constriction of my sinuses and lungs when I was experiencing a severe case of bronchitis, and allowed me to get back to enjoying walks with my dogs."

REBECCA  / VERTIGO

“Suffering from anxiety, I was looking for a way to find relaxation, thinking a simple massage would do that. Through CranioSacral Therapy, I found instead, a way to understand what contributed to and caused my anxiety. I learned that emotional and physical trauma stay with your body.  Buried memories and learned behaviors contribute to the reason you make the decisions you do throughout your life. Working with Patricia, I found a 'safe place' environment to deal with these issues. There is not judgement, only patience and help through the healing. After a few sessions, I knew that had found where I was supposed to be to start the healing."

T.K. / ANXIETY

“I have been working with Patricia for a couple of years now. The focus of our sessions has been on healing my spine, digestion, and SomatoEmotional release. Each session is different and opens up a different layer of healing for me. I have faced heavy emotional cellular memories and have been blessed with the opportunity to heal them. CranioSacral Therapy has deepened my journey into self inquiry and has given me the gift of seeing myself and experiencing the present moment. I have experienced resistance, guilt, grief, sadness, anger, and acceptance and have learned how to experience each emotion fully. Patricia is intuitive and provides me a safe and healing space for me during each session we have together. She gives me the space I need to heal, learn, and grow. I am so grateful for her and CranioSacral Therapy."

KATRINA / CELIAC DISEASE

“Patricia’s expertise goes beyond that of a talented CranioSacral Therapist. I felt that she was invested in my wellbeing and supportive of my particular journey a way that most practitioners are not. I showed up with chronic pain and intractable digestive issues along with LOTS of doubt. I’m rather curious and analytical by disposition, so I was excited to try CST but also highly skeptical. Patricia helped me to edge my way through that skepticism and to have experiences which ultimately bolstered my position with regard to health, emotion and wellbeing. Her approach is perspectivally inclusive and distinctly intelligent… almost scientific. She’s careful to listen and not to preach any particular perspective with regard to what one should be doing or experiencing. I would go so far as to say that she embodies many of the values exemplified by shamans and healers of ages past in that she is simultaneously supportive, open, and challenging. I was used to doctors and practitioners telling me what to do and/or performing various treatments on me, but she expected me to actually engage with the process and to participate in my own healing, which I’ve since learned is a normal component of traditional approaches to healing. For me, it was uniquely constructive"
