Frequently Asked Questions
What is Craniosacral Therapy?
Craniosacral Therapy is a gentle touch technique that addresses restrictions in the fascia. Fascia is the web of soft tissue that holds your body together. Craniosacral therapy also addresses the bones and joints in your head, spine, pelvis, and other joints as needed. It is a whole-body approach that relieves pain and promotes healing.
What is Tensegrity Medicine?
The layers of soft tissues in your body become restricted over time due to injury, inflammation, and trauma. Tensegrity Medicine frees the tightest areas of your body. It combines full-body evaluation, gentle touch fascia techniques, Self-leadership coaching, and integrated movement to target and treat the most restricted areas.
How can Craniosacral Therapy and Tensegrity Medicine help me?
Craniosacral Therapy and Tensegrity Medicine help with many impairments, including migraines, headaches, spine pain, joint pain, stress, anxiety, jaw dysfunction, post-surgical pain, fibromyalgia, chronic fatigue, scoliosis, brain injury, concussions, and more.

What is a session like at Craniosacral Therapy and Wellness?

Self-leadership coaching to facilitate body-mind connection is incorporated when needed. The session is finished with integrative movement. Sessions are approximately 90-minutes.

How many sessions will I need?
Clients typically benefit from 8 to 16 sessions and then reduce their frequency as needed. It is important to note that--although we always recommend trying a session to see how it feels--one session is usually not enough to address all of the complex layers of the body. You will most likely need more than one session to achieve your goals. Our goal is to get you feeling better so you don't need us anymore.
Do you take insurance?
Because Craniosacral Therapy and Wellness is a health and wellness clinic with a focus on fascial evaluation and treatment, it is not covered by health insurance. Therefore, we accept payment at the time of service and are unable to file insurance claims.
