Rolfing® and Craniosacral Therapy
My approach to manual touch therapy comes from various frames of reference and has transformed and integrated over the course of ten years. My work as a certified craniosacral therapist means that I intuit the most subtle layers of the body’s tissue through a very gentle touch and a deep understanding of the cerebrospinal fluid rhythms and energetic body. The other side of my bodywork experience, as a certified Rolfer® and a tenured yoga teacher, provide me with the scientific anatomical knowledge, an understanding of how the body manages itself in space, and tools to work through the connective tissues of the body. These tissues become dense and tight due to a variety of life experiences including diet and lifestyle, and if unresolved, can lead to chronic pain.
Just as we have different tones of voice and a variety of languages to communicate to each other, the body/mind also benefits from having various tools to build relationship. The craniosacral touch is soft, understated yet often profound, while Rolfing has a greater spectrum of diversity and is generally considered a more direct approach to bodywork existing in a broader framework for managing the body in space.
