Developing her love for the gentle work of Craniosacral therapy, she has studied and trained for 20 years, including dissection classes, and advanced training with Dr. John Upledger, DO in Florida. As a certified teaching assistant, she has helped many learn CranioSacral therapy at all levels (beginning through advanced), and has supervised and taught Upledger Institute endorsed CranioSacral Study Groups. CST is such a powerful in-road to affecting the brain and nervous system, and the resultant structures of the body, that she uses this as a primary form of assessment and treatment, blending her PT skills for measurable documentation of progress, and integration into home function, and self-help skills.
The heart of Shawn’s work is bringing her artistic, creative, and spiritual side to her approach with patient care. She listens with compassion to another person’s experience, story, goals and desires, assessing the body for structural and emotional restrictions, and helping to free these areas to facilitate transformation of body awareness, pain-free function, and vitality for life.
