Out of network with all plans
For 18 years, I have helped people explore their outer and inner beauty as a professional hairstylist. Forced to dig deep and engage in my own personal healing as life unfolded in unexpected ways, I realized the true connection between the mind and body. I have spent the last six years, extensively studying craniosacral therapy and various treatment modalities that aid in the healing process. My focus has included the impact of different types of trauma, including developmental trauma and emotional regulation. Throughout my educational experience and my own journey toward healing, I have personally seen the benefits of this holistic and extremely unique practice. Craniosacral Therapy can unlock emotional wounds and enhance the body’s ability to heal from physical ailments.
What is Craniosacral Therapy?
Craniosacral Therapy (CST) is a gentle, hands-on method of evaluating and enhancing the function of a physiological system of the body called the craniosacral system. This system is comprised of membranes and cerebrospinal fluid that surround and protect the brain and spinal cord. Using a soft touch, I release restrictions in the craniosacral system to improve the pulse and movement, increasing function of the central nervous system.
By complementing the body’s natural healing process, CST is effective for a wide range of medical problems associated with pain and dysfunction including: Migraine Headaches, Chronic pain, Autism Spectrum Disorder, Learning Disabilities, Scoliosis, Traumatic Brain and Spinal Cord Injury, Fibromyalgia, Chronic Fatigue, Stress, TMJ, and more.
Due to the gentle nature of this treatment, it is safe and effective for all ages, from newborns to the elderly. However, my educational background and experience includes treating children ages 5 and older. In a typical appointment, my patients will lie on their back fully clothed, while I tune into the gentle craniosacral pulse and rhythm.
Somato Emotional Release (SER) Therapy
SER is a therapeutic process that uses and expands on the principles of Craniosacral Therapy to help rid the mind and body of the residual effects of trauma. Using the craniosacral rhythm as an indicator, information can be gained from the tissues of the body to recall and release the trauma held in the memory cells of the muscles. This is a gentle, non-invasive technique used to get to the root of discomfort and dysfunction.
Myofascial Release Therapy
Fascia is a layer of tissue that permeates the human body. It interpenetrates and surrounds muscles, bone, organs, nerves, and other structures. Fascia is an uninterrupted, three dimensional web of tissue that extends from head to toe, interior to exterior. CST and/or Myofascial Release Therapy can help release tension within the body. By releasing soft tissue restrictions and compensations of the body, the body’s movements can flow more naturally.
More About Me:
I love the beauty of Northern Virginia and enjoy spending time with my family. My passion for the arts helps bring balance to my life through painting and my occasional attempt at playing the violin (which has been collecting dust in my closet for the past ten years).
