Craniosacral Therapy

I recently began working with an elderly gentleman, in his home. Before I began seeing him, he was on a lot of pain medication, and still complained regularly of pain, often crying out. He had seen a few massage therapists, at least one of whom actually continued her treatment without modification even though he was crying out in more pain. He was taking so much pain medication that it was affecting his lucidity, and he was doing less, remembering less, and understanding less each day. I worked with him using a combination of CranioSacral Therapy and massage. He immediately noticed a reduction in pain that lasted longer each session. Very soon, they were able to reduce his pain medication levels. His lucidity returned, and he began conversing, and even playing games of bridge again. After a time, I noticed signs of sleep apnea in a session - and they reduced his pain medication yet again. Continued therapy is allowing him to sleep well, be comfortable most of the time, and enjoy the times when he is with his children again. I love my job.

REVIEWS for my Bodywork services

Helen is such an amazing professional whose provided unbelievable healing. Thank you Helen!
by Mike on Jun 10
I have had positive experiences with massage in the past, but Helen far surpasses those. She is attentive, highly skilled, and extremely effective.
by Ann on Jun 07
I went to see Helen for back pain, and it was virtually eliminated after my appointment. I regained nearly full range of movement immediately, and I was able to get back to full health within 24 hours by drinking lots of water and doing back stretching and cored strengthening exercises. Without Helen, I would have likely been out of commission for at least a week.

Helen has helped me so very much and given amazing tools to put away worries.

Excellent in every respect. Nice office, soothing music. A very thorough massage.
by Bridget on Jan 25
I liked the music and the warm blanket. I like the conversation before the body work Where I check with myself.
by Ron on Dec 20
I was little shocked by the price I paid. I guess I should have asked. The technique used was different. I don't know if I liked or disliked it. Haven't really thought about it. I felt relaxed after it was completed. That's good. I appreciated the fact that there wasn't much talking outside of checking comfort levels. This is the first time I've had a full body massage.

Helen has always done a great job working out the tension in my muscles. I cannot imagine going to anyone else.
by Robin on Dec 09
Helen has been able to get into my neck and jaw muscles like no one else; I am so thankful to have been connected with her.
by Ashley on Dec 07
Helen was amazing! She worked me into her schedule even though I was anew client. I was having extreme anxiety and close to a panic attack. I left my session feeling calm, grounded, and like I could breath for the first time in a long time. I will definitely be going back!
