LMT, CA, LPC

If you believe, like I do, in the mindbody connection, then you know there is a body-based part to your emotional and physical health. There are multiple ways to approach healing. One pathway is via talk therapy. It’s a cognitive way of working things out emotionally. Talk therapy engages the cognitive and upper parts of the brain and works through emotional narrative and beliefs. Another pathway is through somatic therapies. Somatic therapies engage the lower parts of the brain, the nonverbal, emotional parts of the brain. Somatic therapies help process the feelings helps in the body non-verbally and also helps connect these feelings to language and understanding. Craniosacral Therapy (CST), developed by John E. Upledger, DO, FAAO, is a gentle, physical technique that bridges the mindbody system. It works by assisting the body to release the negative effects of stress on the central nervous system (CNS). CST releases physical stress and can also directly release emotional energy trapped in the body.
