Bodywork with Steph.

What is Biodynamic Craniosacral Therapy?

Biodynamic Craniosacral Therapy is a fluid and energy based modality. It has returned to the origins of craniosacral therapy that was originally developed by early holistic osteopaths. It is not a mechanical form that lifts and turns cranial bones. Rather one listens to the inherent movements within the body below the beating of the heart and the breathing of the lungs. As a facilitator, Stephanie reflects back to the client their patterns, bringing an enhanced self-awareness to them.

Biodynamic Craniosacral Therapy is a very gentle hands-on modality that assists one’s body in re-organizing into a more efficient way of being in life. As we release old tensions, held patterns or trauma that manifest as chronic tight shoulders or TMJ or indigestion, we free up energy for use in our present life and a greater sense of relaxation follows. The client is clothed, lying on a massage table.

It has been used for a variety of health conditions including, stress, temporomandibular joint syndrome (TMJ), learning disabilities, whiplash, insomnia, migraine and headaches, allergies, and pregnant women pre and post-natal.

What is Polarity Therapy?

Polarity is a hands-on energetic modality that uses non-invasive bodywork to palpate stuck energy in the body. Additionally, Polarity uses diet, Polarity yoga, and thought patterns to create new pathways within the mind, body and spirit. When the energy is blocked or not flowing smoothly, the client will experience pain and discomfort – the reason why they seek help. The body has an inherent sense of wellness. It is always trying to self-correct and sometimes it just needs to be assisted in order to re-align. The intent of Polarity is to bring about a balanced distribution of the body’s energies.

Polarity therapy has been used to help relieve diverse conditions manifesting as tension, insomnia, indigestion, sciatica, muscle spasms, menstruation, and menopause.

A sense of bliss.

“Steph’s emphasis on alignment has helped my posture and sense of wellbeing. Steph's craniosacral sessions help me to inhabit my body fully and to relax. I leave with a sense of bliss.”

— P.K.

It's sublime.

“A cranial sacral treatment in the privacy of an open-air outdoor cabana is all that you need to calm down your central nervous system. Stephanie’s years of experience and gentle touch will put you to rest on a warm massage table. With birds chirping around you. It's sublime."

 — S.T.

Healing and loving energy.

“Stephanie is a very gifted bodyworker.  She has very healing and loving energy.  I have had sessions with Stephanie when I have had severe pains in my body.  When I got up after the session, I was pain free or nearly pain free.  It is almost miraculous.  I have also gone to Stephanie when I simply wanted to feel good.  All I can say is - it is pure bliss.”

— A.S.
