CranioSacral Therapy

**Due to COVID-19 and the State of Maine restrictions on massage therapy and other bodywork modalities, CranioSacral Therapy has been suspended indefinitely.**

 

Caring for your mind and body is integral to your healing process. With the help of CranioSacral Therapy, we will work together to calm your mind, reduce tension in your body, and create a sense of peace in an otherwise chaotic time.

What is CranioSacral Therapy?

CranioSacral Therapy is a light-touch, hands-on healing therapy that works with the central nervous system (the brain and the spinal cord). In the time after a significant loss, the nervous system goes into protection mode (fight or flight). CranioSacral Therapy can reduce this stress response of the nervous system and help return it to more effective functioning (rest and digest).

CranioSacral Therapy can allow you to move towards a more direct and intimate sense of your own wellbeing and instill a feeling of peace and calm. CranioSacral Therapy can also help reduce the physical symptoms of grief you may be experiencing, such as headaches, tension, digestive upset, poor sleep, neck pain, or back pain.

What does a session with Emily entail?

During your session, you’re welcome to share as much or as little about your loss as you’d like. A portion of the session is available for you to voice where you are in your journey, where I can offer a compassionate ear and an open heart as your companion in your pain. The session also includes time for a hands-on CranioSacral treatment. You’ll remain fully clothed for the session and I’ll make gentle contact with target areas, releasing restrictions deep within the body, allowing your mind to quiet, your body to be nourished, and your nervous system to be restored.

Testimonials

“I met Emily during a traumatic time in my life. I had lost my husband after a long illness and the grief was heart-wrenching.

My husband had been critically ill for 14 years. Even though my life during that time was extremely challenging, when he passed and there was no longer anyone to care for, I felt empty.

I didn’t even want to go out. I resisted any kind of change.

Then I started working with Emily. And the improvements slowly washed over me like low tide. It was a gentle reminder that it was ok to be out and enjoying my life.

I started to gain self-confidence. I explored self-care. And I felt a new attitude after just 2-3 sessions.

Every time I visited Emily for a treatment, I left with more energy. I was motivated in the organizations I’m involved in and I was actually able to have fun again.

Her sessions helped me focus and they opened my heart to life again.”

— Anne S. Cape Elizabeth, ME

“I sought out Emily’s services due to numbness and shoulder pain on my left side. The pain was preventing me from doing simple things like driving, reaching, and looking up.

Through Emily’s use of CranioSacral therapy in weekly visits, I now feel 98% better. I felt improvement with each session and always felt comfortable as she explained the methods used to peel back the layers of tension. I also really enjoy our uplifting conversations. I can’t thank Emily enough!”

— Joyce P. Portland, ME

“I initially made an appointment with Emily because I was suffering from chronic debilitating pain in my right shoulder and arm, which was the result of 3 accidents, and in my lower back. I had worked with two chiropractors, had physically therapy, and was regularly taking an OTC anti-inflammatory on pretty much a daily basis. My pain limited me recreationally, and I had not been able to really exercise for about 2 1/2 years.

I knew immediately that Emily’s techniques were different from any past experiences. The body work was gentle with body check-ins throughout the session. Within a month I felt like my shoulder and arm were able to handle more of the regular demands of life, the pain level dropped considerably, and I was able to stop using OTC anti-inflammatories. 

I have continued working with Emily because as my body has improved and I realize how much more it can improve. I have recommended Emily to family members and friends, and we all say the same thing, “We aren’t exactly sure what she does, but it really works!”

— Donna A. Yarmouth, ME
