I blend the very best of Trigger Point + Craniosacral Therapies to help you move past the pain.
After 26 years in the field, I’ve found two very different approaches to be the most effective ways to help you move past chronic and acute conditions – Trigger Point Therapy and Craniosacral Therapy.
Trigger Point Therapy is a muscle-focused therapy that involves ischemic compression on hyper-irritable spots.
Trigger Point is very effective in relieving pain, numbness, and weakness anywhere in the body… head, neck, back, shoulders, knees, and toes.
When you’re in pain, nothing is more satisfying than someone taking the time to “work it out.”
Many manual therapists say they work on trigger points – but do they really give them the time and attention they deserve?
My style of therapy involves waiting until you feel the tissues soften, because we may be working on the muscles, but we’re also having a conversation with your brain! When your brain is convinced all is well, the body responds and the pain alarms are silenced.
Craniosacral Therapy is a “light touch” modality that helps your body release tension + improves functionality in your central nervous system.
Your craniosacral system is comprised of the membranes and cerebrospinal fluid that surround and protect your brain and spinal cord. Everything is connected.
Craniosacral (or “Cranio” as I like to call it) is a great way to address systemic issues affecting your whole body and problems related to restricted fascia – the connective tissues surrounding your muscles, bones, joints, nerves, and organs.
For some, this therapy can create a state of extreme relaxation known as “twilight.” Others stay fully cognizant. Both marvel at how working on your sacrum can relieve a migraine.
Every day is a new day, so each time we meet, I will do what best speaks to your nervous system.
As pain science continues to evolve, I promise to evolve with it. With each passing year, we get better at understanding how our brains experience pain which makes us more effective in relieving it. When we know better, we do better!
