Craniosacral TherapyCST is a gentle, hands-on method of evaluating and enhancing the functioning of a physiological body system called the craniosacral system - comprised of the membranes and cerebrospinal fluid that surround and protect the brain and spinal cord. Using a soft touch, about the weight of a nickel, practitioners release restrictions in the craniosacral system to improve the functioning of the central nervous system.By complementing the body's natural healing processes, CST is increasingly used as a preventive health measure for its ability to bolster resistance to disease, and is effective for a wide range of medical problems associated with pain and dysfunction.
SomatoEmotional ReleaseSER 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. Applications are designed to enhance results using CST and other complementary therapies.

Advanced Fascial CounterstrainFascial Counterstrain is a highly skilled method that relies on a scan of all of the body's systems in order to locate and treat the origin(s) of pain. It is based soundly in anatomy, and can be explained by the most recent explosion of scientific research on fascia. Because we treat the source of the problem(s), our success rates tend to be very high, with often immediate and clinically observable results produced from the very first session onward. We look forward to serving you at one of our several locations in southeastern Wisconsin, less than an hour north of Milwaukee.
Clinically observable effectsThe clinically observable effects of these treatments commonly include: decreased pain, decreased tenderness, decreased swelling, normalization of muscle tone, increased circulation; improved posture, improved proprioception improved efficiency of muscle recruitment patterns, increased range of motion, improved strength, and improved functional performance.
