Dawn Standera, BA RN offers Craniosacral Therapy Sessions
Craniosacral therapy (CST) is a gentle hands on technique to restore
normal position and motion of the bones of the skull, spine and sacrum,
and to restore cerebrospinal fluid flow.

CTS uses the craniosacral rhythm and system as a guide to correct
restrictions and to facilitate optimal craniosacral function to normalize
the environment of the central nervous system. The result is improvement
in pain and function and improvement in whole-body health and performance.
