CranioSacral Therapy
Dover, New Hampshire Area

Julie has been practicing CranioSacral Therapy at the advanced level for over twelve years and enjoys working with people of all ages. She has also volunteered her time doing CST over the past seven years to participate in the Dolphin Assisted Therapy Program offered through Integrative Intentions in the Bahamas.

CranioSacral Therapy is a gentle manual therapy that helps to release restrictions in the body’s connective tissue (fascia) in order to relieve pain and increase function. The patient is invited to relax on a massage treatment table fully clothed. The therapist will use a light touch (usually no heavier than the weight of a nickel) at key points to pinpoint the source of an obstruction or stress in the body. Once a source has been determined, the therapist may assist the natural movement of a fluid and related soft tissue to help the body self-correct. This simple action is often all it takes to remove a restriction – as the body is always trying to heal itself when given the optimal opportunity. The patient may experience a deep sense of relaxation, combined with sensations of heat, tingling and pulsation as the body is helped to re-establish original movement/energy flow and release resistance patterns. CST works with the natural rhythms of the body with a non-invasive, light touch to achieve a response, so it is considered safe and effective for many conditions.

CranioSacral Therapy is increasingly used as a preventive health measure for its ability to bolster resistance to disease and create a sense of well-being. It is effective for a wide range of medical problems associated with pain and dysfunction including:
