Craniosacral work is a holistic healing practice that uses extremely light finger pressure to optimize a movement pattern within the body, which is known as the cranial wave. Craniosacral work differs from most other modalities by its lightness of touch and the long, attentive duration of each contact.
In simple terms, if the cranial bones are not in the right place then the brain, central nervous system, and hormonal system cannot perform as they were meant to. Even though the cranial bones only move half the thickness of a sheet of writing paper, the human head is so delicate and so suffused with vital nerve pathways, that even slight deformations of a bone’s movement or position can produce physical or psychological symptoms. These symptoms include depression, headaches, nervousness, irritability and pain.
In a session, light touch and extremely light pressure is used to encourage the bones to return to their original positions, which helps the cranial wave to return to normal and the symptoms to decrease or end.
What People Are Saying
I have degenerative disk disease in my cervical, thoracic and lumbar spine. I also have fibromyalgia. Recently I had a bad bout with cervicalgia from bad ergonomics at a new job. The pain radiating from my neck into my shoulder and down my arm was unbearable. I couldn’t get any relief.
I contacted Sheila and made an appointment. Sheila was gentle and deliberate with her touch and her energy. She easily found all the tender and stressed areas including some that took me by surprise!
I just wanted to say that the cranio sacral session was a big success. The relief I felt the day following our session was incredible. I wholeheartedly recommend Sheila’s services.

I had Cranial Sacral work from Sheila after having fallen and couldn’t move my neck. Sheila did her magic on me and I was transported. Literally, no pain within 30 minutes. It was amazing, she is so very gifted!
