She was a “patient” for one of her fellow student’s research project. Finally the opportunity came and she has studied Level 1, Level 2, and SER 1 Craniosacral Therapy with the Upledger Institute.
Annette is a member of the Natural Health Practitioners of Canada Association. She is a member in good standing and is able to do Insurance claims for some people, depending on their insurance provider.
Craniosacral therapy has proven to be extremely beneficial for problems such as headaches/migraines, backaches, neck aches, other bodily chronic/acute pain, stress, anxiety disorders, and learning disorders, just to name a few.
Craniosacral therapy has the ability to get to the core of what is causing problems and help to relieve the pain and dysfunction people are experiencing.
Craniosacral Therapy benefits include:
- deep relaxatoin
- stress reduction
- feels great!
- enhances your health
- pain relief
- increase in energy
Her work extends from her training with an intuitive and compassionate approach to access your body’s innate ability to heal and to move to a higher level of functioning.
Craniosacral Therapy History and Information
CST was pioneered and developed by osteopathic physician John E. Upledger following extensive scientific studies from 1975 to 1983 at Michigan State University, where he served as a clinical researcher and Professor of Biomechanics.
CST is a gentle, hands-on, clothing on, method of evaluating and enhancing the functioning of a physiological body system called the craniosacral system – comprised of the membranes and cerebrospinal fluid that surround and protect the brain and spinal cord.
Using a soft touch generally no greater than 5 grams, or about the weight of a nickel, practitioners release restrictions in the craniosacral system to improve the functioning of the central nervous system.
By complementing the body’s natural healing processes, CST is increasingly used as a preventive health measure for its ability to bolster resistance to disease, and is effective for a wide range of medical problems associated with pain and dysfunction.
