Craniosacral Therapy (CST): It’s a noninvasive type of bodywork that relieves compression in the bones of the head, sacrum, and spinal column. It uses gentle pressure on the head, neck, and back to relieve the stress and pain caused by compression.

Visceral Manipulation (VM): is based on the specific placement of soft manual forces to encourage the normal mobility, tone, and motion of the viscera and their connective tissues. These gentle manipulations can potentially improve the functioning of individual organs, the systems the organs function within, and the structural integrity of the entire body.
