A great experience!
by Linda S. on Sep 27
It gives me a break financially, and I am happy to commit to future treatments

Brain has been a godsend to me. I came in with incredibly intense leg and back pain and in 3 sessions he got me to be pain-free. I was a skeptic at first but now I would recommend him highly to anyone with painful ailments.

atmosphere was pleasant and supportive to the procedure

Skilled and gentle
by Tracie on Aug 16
The hot towels at the beginning were an unexpected surprise. Ahhh. With only 1/2 an hour, I could tell Brian knows his stuff, and I've seen many massage therapists in the past decade for chronic pain issues. I did feel better yesterday! I'm excited to do more inner work on myself by experiencing the full craniosacral session(s).

Brian is so skilled and devoted to his work. It is a pleasure to work with him to get rid of all my "aches and pains"

Fantastic tecchnique

This was only my third experience of CST with Brian. I am amazed by how such a gentle therapy can yield such marked results. I am someone who always feels tired but seldom feels relaxed. That has begun to change. I'm very grateful to have been referred here.
