New Location and Mind/Body Transformation

RaindropI am pleased to announce my new offices in Exeter, NH and Newburyport, MA.  Both locations provide a wonderful space to perform bodywork as well as my growing Mind/Body Transformation practice.  Clients are raving about how effective this transformational energy healing is for them.

Here’s the latest review from a wonderful client in Wisconsin.  We worked over the phone to clear the blocked emotional energy:  “Monica’s kind and loving energy created a safe and nurturing space for our work together. Her techniques are elegant but laser sharp, and I had several significant breakthroughs in our very first session of Mind/Body Transformation together”. Robin R., Wisconsin, Sept. 2015

Together, we can target the origin of emotional blocks that keep you from feeling happy and purposeful.  What type of blocks?  Emotional pain, self-esteem issues, frantic nervous systems, blocked heart walls from past trauma, grief, financial blocks, depression and anxiety.  It is an honor to work with clients to identify the cause of long-standing emotional patterns.

Call me at 603-486-8770 to discuss how Mind/Body Transformation can help you.  We will schedule a free 15 minute Discovery session to see how we can best work together.  Or email me at touchofyourlife@gmail.com.  I look forward to working with you!  Here’s the link to learn more: Mind/Body Healing

Why get Cranio Sacral Therapy?

Cranio sacral techniques are the treatment of choice for backaches, neck pain, shoulder pain, headaches, sciatica, injuries, misaligned cranial bones and many other conditions. Many people suffering from loss of strength in their arms, legs or tingling or numbness in these areas can be safely and quickly treated with this method with good results.

What does it do?

Cranio sacral therapy is a very precise scientific method for realigning bones which have been misplaced. This process works with the body to relax muscles which are tight and then works with the central nervous system to correct the problem. In cranio sacral therapy gentle pressure is applied over misaligned bones and tight muscle or fascia, which relax and glide into place as the person breathes.

What does a patient experience?

The patient lies on a bed while the therapist gently exerts pressure on various parts of the body as required. This is a very sophisticated process which acts by allowing your body restore the normal alignment of the different bones and body structures rather than attempting to force them back to place as in some techniques of manipulation.

How does it work?

Cranio sacral therapy is a gentle and painless procedure which yields excellent results in expert hands. The treatment takes between thirty and 60 minutes and is usually repeated at intervals of 3-10 days till the skull and spine are perfectly aligned. The whole spine and skull are treated at each session as the spine and skull act functionally as one integral whole in spite of the fact that they are anatomically made up from many different bones

No force is used in the process of alignment and no jerking or “clicking” of the spine takes place. The patient’s spine is positioned in different ways to allow the misaligned segments of the spine to realign themselves into their normal position as the patient breathes. These techniques known as position and hold techniques as the process of alignment proceeds through the physiological movements which occur as we breathe. This makes it suitable for use even in patient’s with a severe neurological deficit as the entire process can be carefully and exactly controlled.

What are the benefits?

Many benefits include: relief of chronic pain, deep relaxation, release of injury, deeper tensions relieved from stress, poor posture, falls, spinal injuries, head injuries, etc.  Every system is affected because the release is taking place in the central nervous system.

Improved relaxation, increase of circulation, deeper breathing, pain relief, lengthening of spine, headache relief, especially migraines.  Anxiety is relieved as well, and children and teens are helped by the release of traumatic events from the nervous system.

For Moms and Babies

CranioSacral Therapy is especially helpful for moms and babies to rebalance and feel better pre- and post-delivery. I remember feeling overwhelmed, depressed and tired all the time after my second son was born.  It was a very difficult time for me, and if I had known about this very gentle therapy, I am sure it would have alleviated those symptoms.  I see it every day in my practice, how relaxed people feel, just today someone said “this is very powerful, I feel so relaxed and rejuvenated at the same time.”

How does CranioSacral Therapy help with childbirth?  

It significantly helps to relax and calm the mother and baby during pregnancy.  It can release tensions within the baby in utero and allow for an easier birth.  Post partem, CranioSacral therapy, relaxed for a better nursing experience, alleviates anxiety and postpartem depression.  It also speeds post-delivery recovery.

This very gentle touch is famous for assisting newborns with colic, head shape balance, torticollis, and other tension release for greater comfort in body.

What about children?

CST is great for children throughout development.  As children mature, CST can quickly relieve stress, anxiety,  headaches, sports and other injuries, release strain and pain from braces. CST can also assist learning disabilities, autism and sensory processing disorder.   (see Working Wonders: Changing Lives With CranioSacral Therapy, ed. by the Upledger Institute, or email for info.).

“If you can help children do well throughout development, it gives them a good foundation for adult life.”  Dr. John Upledger, Founder of CranioSacral Therapy.

I am happy to assist with pregnancy, post partem for moms, and babies, children in both locations, Madison and Baraboo, Wisconsin.  I look forward to treating this very special moment in the early stages of life that can be very stressful, but need not be.
