CranioSacral Therapy (CST)
The CranioSacral system is made up of the protective layers of connective tissue and the cerebrospinal fluid surrounding the central nervous system. CST releases tension and restrictions within this system, which can have positive effects on many aspects of one’s health.

The ancient art of acupuncture comes from Traditional Chinese Medicine, inserting needles into the body’s meridian system to balance and restore qi (life force energy) and prevent disharmony within body, mind and spirit. Additional more modern styles of acupuncture such as trigger-point or dry needling for muscular release are also used as needed. Sessions include thorough consultation and review of health history, acupuncture needling as well adjunctive care like acupressure or cupping as needed. Your practitioner may offer lifestyle or exercise recommendations to assist clients in achieving health care goals.
