"I recommend CranioSacral Therapy to my clients experiencing TMJ-d.  It's a great, alternative method to addressing jaw dysfunction."

For back pain

After my first session at Craniosacral East I slept for 10 hours...and the shooting
back pains I'd had were completely gone.”

For infants

"Joshua has helped many of the breastfeeding families with whom I work, specifically around problams associated with birth and oral motor skills."

For Autism

At first, Eric (Four years old and autistic) ran around, repeating noises and short words, spending only seconds close enough for me to work with him….his skull was taught like a basketball. Over two months the interior membranes of his skull softened, he could spend more and more time being worked on, his attention was calmer, and his sentences were longer and clearer. It was a great honor helping him communicate and be more comfortable in his own body.

Mary Ellen Clark, Olympic winner in 1982, won also in 1996 in women's platform diving after treatment with CranioSacral Therapy. She was suffering from severe vertigo. She tried many different traditional and complementary medical treatments simultaneously. Nothing helped. 


CranioSacral Therapy was the last resort she tried to get back to her career. After receiving a series of CST treatments, she went back on training and won a bronze medal in the 1996 Olympic Games.  (This and the next recommendation by Dr. Andrew Weil are not to Craniosacral-East in particular but to the modality in general.)

"Cranio Therapy... may benefit asthma, reoccurring ear infection in children, sleep disorders, and other conditions rooted in nervous system imbalances. I have found it to be safe and highly effective."

For toddler support

"I brought my six-month-old daughter to Joshua after she started banging her head and developed regular teeth-grinding. He'd explained to me that head-banging is often a way a child expresses a need to release membranes within their skull. After one session, Rio's head-banging and teeth-grinding has been drastically reduced."

For Pregnancy Support

"At 7 weeks pregnant, a pain developed deep within my pelvis. I went to my Doctor and Physical Therapist who both said I had “Pelvic Girdle Pain,” and nothing could be done. The whole thing was very upsetting…as I am a pre and post natal personal trainer. Craniosacral Therapy helped release the painful spasms I was experiencing. My tailbone felt like it settled where it should be—and I felt much better.”

Benefits of CranioSacral Therapy

By gently clearing restrictions in your CranioSacral system, your brain and spinal cord are open to the rhythmic flow of cerebral spinal fluid so your whole body can find an optimal state of balance. 

  • Boostings your general sense of well being
  • Offering release from chronic pains
  • Reducing stress
  • Improving the quality of your sleep
  • Increasing your ability to stay focused
  • Enhancing the functioning of your body's organs. 
  • Allows blocked emotions to flow through you more easily, instead of manifesting in your body as physical symptoms such as migraines, back pain, TMJ, digestive system disorders, etc.
