Dr. Laura Crosby, ND, LAc
Craniosacral Therapy is a gentle form of somatic work that involves gentle holding of cranial bones, the sacrum, and the extremities to optimize the flow of cerebral spinal fluid. When CSF flow has been impacted by chronic emotional or structural stress or trauma such as motor vehicle accidents, head injuries and other pain disorders, the impact can be felt downstream in every other body system. Craniosacral therapy through relaxation and therapeutic touch can help alleviate discomfort caused by fascial restrictions, improve lymph flow, decrease pain, as well as improve sleep and digestion.
What to expect
Intake Nutrition Visits:
Sessions will involve table work, face-up. Shoes will be off, patients remain clothed. First sessions are 45 minutes, return visits are 30 minutes.
Follow-up Nutrition Visits:
60 minutes. Follow up visits begin to work through the plan established in the intake visit and continue to explore steps towards nutrition goals and creating a safe space to work through the challenges associated with moving towards these goals. In addition, depending on the client's needs and goals, lab results can be reviewed and a nutrition plan can be made to support these results. As needed, we can create a meal guideline and work together to find foods and recipes to support this meal guideline.
Typically clients are seen weekly or every two weeks to start, however the frequency of follow up depends on the client’s needs.
