Cranial Sacral Therapy (CST)
CST is a gentle hands on therapy which focuses predominately on the cranium (head) and the sacrum (tailbone). The experienced therapist works with the flexion and extension of the cranial sacral system. The technique consists of a very gentle light comforting touch which assists the client to move into a place of deep relaxation. In this state, the negative effects of stress on the central nervous system dissipate which encourages better overall health and resistance to disease. CST is beneficial for headaches, neck and back pain, Chronic Fatigue, misalignment, tension/stress, and emotional difficulties. It is also very beneficial when receiving, or after having received dental or orthodontic work.

Internal Family Systems Therapy (IFS)
Despite the name, IFS is primarily a form of individual therapy. IFS recognizes that our psyches are made up of different parts, sometimes called sub-personalities.Each part has its own perspective, feelings, memories, goals, and motivations. For example one part of you might be trying to lose weight and another part might want to eat whatever you want. IFS also recognizes that we each have a spiritual center, the Self, which is compassionate, understanding, and grounded. Through IFS you can learn to stay in Self, develop a relationship with each of your parts, and heal them - thus unburdening yourself of extreme beliefs, emotions, or sensations that constrain your life.

Self Regulation Therapy © (Somatic Therapy)
Self Regulation Therapy © (SRT) is a mind-body approach to help you resolve excess energy (fight, flight or freeze), feelings, and/or over-riding thoughts, remaining from traumatic events or chronic stress. This excess energy (activation) that remains in your nervous system can cause dysregulation, meaning you may still feel reactive, and experience symptoms such as anxiety, depression, irritability, sleep problems, digestive issues, PTSD, or stuck grief. SRT is a safe and gentle therapy where you are not required to tell your story over and over and have your nervous system re-live the trauma, but where you are supported to track your activation in a titrated way (a little at a time) through observing your body sensations. This allows the excess energy to discharge, allowing your nervous system to empty out and settle. As we work through the discharge, you are also able to renegotiate the event so there is the best possible outcome and your nervous system can finally come to resolution.
