Restrictions and Balances the Body

therapeutic session can help the body to release deeply held patterns of disease both physically and psychologically.
We all encounter traumas during a lifetime, emotionally as well as physically. The effects of these traumas
often accumulate throughout a life whether it be from the result of an injury, illness, or emotional upset.

types of ill-health and dysfuction later in life unless the stored energy is able to release.
This is where cranioscaral therapy comes in. It is an exceptionally powerful and gentle healing therapy. It
can also benefit almost any person who is suffering from something as simple as a minor ache or pain to more
chronic health problems.
