Come play!


This is the one class we offer that's open to everyone and anyone. Maybe you (or a family member) have received Craniosacral Therapy and you're curious to understand how it works.  Or perhaps you're ready to begin your journey toward becoming a practitioner.  If so, this is the perfect class for you!

  • Enjoy receiving and practicing light-touch craniosacral bodywork all four days of class.
  • Enhance your experience of grounding, centering and stillness.
  • Feel better-balanced and relaxed.
  • Develop skills of perception, instinct and intuition.
  • Gain a clear understanding of the history and basis of this profoundly effective therapy. All models of craniosacral therapy, Upledger/biomechanical through Biodynamic, are explored.
  • Learn basic, gentle skills you can take home and use with friends and loved ones.
  • Blend basic craniosacral therapy into your bodywork repertoire (LMTs, energy workers).
  • Have fun learning in an easygoing atmosphere.

    "I am still using what I learned from your intro class.  I can't tell you how much I love going to that place of awareness and allow.  There is such bliss in letting go and witnessing movement toward wholeness (whatever that means in that moment).  Thank you so much for opening that space and practice." 
    - Judy Rosch, RN, Reiki Practitioner
