HOW CAN I SUPPORT YOU

FREE CONSULTATIONS

This is a chance to learn more about one another without commitment. The most important part of this consultation is to ensure that we are the right fit for one another. I want to know your desires, reservations, questions and everything in between!

If by the end of the consultation, we do not feel we are the best match for one another I am always happy to refer you elsewhere as the community is strong and there is always someone who can be there for you. I primarily support the Greater Toronto Area, and live in Etobicoke.

Craniosacral Therapy

What is Craniosacral Therapy?
During pregnancy and Labour babies adapt the spaces available to them, sometimes this can cause muscle tension. This form of bodywork is very gentle and can be done as early as a few minutes old. Babies and parents can experience improvements immediately and can see resolved issues in 1-3 treatments. Using about 5 grams of pressure is enough to release tissues from head to toe allowing baby to move more freely and to address issues such as:

  • Body feeding/Chestfeeding/Breastfeeding issues
  • Torticollis – holding head to one side
  • Flat spots on babies heads
  • Tongue ties
  • Blocked tear ducts
  • Vomiting
  • Strained bowel movements
  • Colic
