A gentle approach to stress management and trauma recovery
What is CranioSacral Therapy (CST)?
CST is a hand-on therapy that notoriously comes from Osteopathy, a form of alternative medicine developed in the 1800's in the U.S.
CST uses a light touch to help release tension patterns in the body. It promotes deep relaxation, helps the body’s innate self-healing capacity, helps down-regulate the nervous system to encourage health improvements.
The CranioSacral System of the body is a physiological system composed of the cerebrospinal ﬂuid and membranes surrounding the brain and the spinal cord (the central nervous system), as well as the attached bones (cranium, face, vertebral column and pelvis), sutures and vessels. Learn More
What is Somatic Experiencing® (SE)?
SE is a naturalistic approach to the resolution and healing of trauma, developed by psychologist Dr. Peter Levine and supported by research. It is based on the idea that trauma experiences can lead to dysfunctions in the nervous system when they remain unprocessed.
This therapeutic method employs awareness of body sensations to help people resolve gradually, organically and safely unprocessed trauma in the body.
SE incorporates tracking sensations, pendulation, titration, the use of breath, movement and regulating practices, the Polyvagal theory and may use therapeutic touch in support of the trauma renegotiation process. Learn More

The CranioSacral Therapy session(s) with Emma were AMAZING. I have had several years of lower back tightness, stress in my neck and shoulders and with Emma's calming sessions she was able to get me all squared away. I feel more centered and no back pain or stress. It only took 3 sessions of about an hour and weeks later I am still feeling Fantastic. Thank you Emma for getting my mind, spine and body back on the same page.

"Emma is one of those rare individuals who truly listens and is able to translate what she hears into a plan of action for your better health. Her intuitive manner and magic hands have made changes in my body which I did not think were possible. Both she and her office create an atmosphere of positivity and joy."

When I met Emma I had terrible pain in my shoulders and neck from session one I've always had an extraordinary experience, she's been really helping me to feel better in all ways. After the session I can feel relieved from stress and pain. I can feel myself more calm and focused, I wish I could come with her once a week. -at least- She's a healer, has the touch to realign your energy and teaches you how to understand your body. I feel so blessed to find her. Thank you Emma.
