We offer Craniosacral Therapy with Kate Chilson

What is craniosacral therapy?
Craniosacral therapy is a gentle massage technique that stems from the
manual therapy tradition of Osteopathy. In craniosacral therapy, your vital
energy is thought to reside in the cerebrospinal fluid which bathes your
spine and brain. Tuning into the rhythm of this energy helps regulate your
nerves, relax your muscles and realign your bones.

Craniosacral therapy is focused on the dynamic functionality of your body.
In the sessions your practitioner seeks to tune into your body’s vital
energy in order to understand how shifting your body’s structure can
improve its function, and how your body can best house your spirit. Through
gentle touch we work together to allow positive change to occur, so that
your body feels more comfortable, energetic and vibrant.

What is a craniosacral session with Kate like?
You are fully clothed and lie face up on the massage table. A session
begins with your practitioner lightly and gently holding your feet,
shoulders, sacrum (the bony triangle at the base of your spine), or head.
This allows her to assess your overall health. She follows her intuition
and your feedback to continue listening with her hands.

At each of area of your body, your practitioner helps your body unwind
patterns of restriction, suggesting more freedom and nourishment. Through
stillness and awareness we can arrive together at a place where you feel
more balance and vitality.

Clients describe the cranial sessions as deeply relaxing. Without
exception, people are amazed at how much their bodies shift with such
subtle work.
