Craniosacral Fascia Therapy (CFT) is a very gentle, natural approach with powerful therapeutic effects. Based on the theory that the Craniosacral and Fascial systems are not separate but one interconnected system, this non-invasive approach allows the body to unwind, release strain and tension that contribute to discomfort or dysfunction. CFT is a beneficial treatment for everyone from newborn to adult. It's gentle approach allows the body to do what it needs to do with more efficiency and ease, not with manipulation or force.
What is fascia?
Fascia is the body’s connective tissue, providing a framework that helps support and protect muscles, organs, and the entire body as a unit. It is an all-encompassing web found throughout the body that protects the entire body as a whole. It envelopes organs, muscles, nerves and even blood, for protection from outside trauma.
The intricate craniosacral fascial system originates in the body's core around the brain and spinal cord, and extends through the fascial web. A healthy system allows for the free flow of cerebrospinal fluid from the brain, down the spine, to the sacrum, and into the fascia.
How is Fascia impacted or damaged?
All of us have experienced trauma --- difficult birth, surgery, auto accidents, falls, concussions, dental work/orthodontics, vaccinations, and emotional trauma, to name a few. Starting from birth, traumas accumulate and can create strain and toxicity in the craniosacral fascial system, restricting critical brain motion. Damage to the craniosacral fascial system can cause poor blood flow, diminish nerve impulses, hinder brain function, limit range of motion, and cause a host of other ailments.
How does CFT help?
Our brains must expand and contract. Any restrictions or damage to this motion can greatly effect our health and wellbeing.
CFT techniques are designed to gently unwind and release accumulated fascial strain. This allows optimal mobility and better brain function. When the Craniosacral Fascial System is loose and open there is free flow of cerebrospinal fluid to help nourish and cleanse toxins.
CFT is effective for all ages and may provide benefits for a variety of discomforts, concerns or conditions.
A CFT session is also a great compliment to other therapies like Chiropractic, Massage, Physiotherapy.

Reiki is a Japanese technique for stress reduction and relaxation that also promotes healing. It is a form of natural healing used to cleanse, balance and heal while invigorating the mind, body and soul.
Reiki promotes relaxation and peacefulness, helping to let go of tension and provides a great foundation for a positive pregnancy, birth and postpartum.
It can be used to clear and remove blocked and negative energy, can used to try and change a situation or concern and also help to find peace with a situation that requires acceptance.
Reiki is a simple yet profound form of natural healing for the body, mind, and spirit. Treatments are uniquely personal and the healing adapts to the needs of each recipient.
Complimentary therapies, such as Reiki, can help to restore the body's natural equilibrium and balance. When the body is relaxed and in balance it can cope with everyday stresses and strains of life much more effectively. In this state, you are less prone to sickness, illness and disease.
While Reiki is not a miracle cure for any one situation and there is no guarantee it will impact pregnancy or birth process. It is a wonderful tool to use to support relaxation and provide comfort. Many have reported positive outcomes with the use of Reiki for common concerns during pregnancy, birth and postpartum.
Reiki supports your body's natural ability to heal on all levels. It enhances healing of all kinds and may relieve pain and acute symptoms very quickly. It also supports spiritual growth. Reiki can affect each person differently but it always works for the recipient's highest good. Reiki works on the body as a whole, balancing the emotions, bringing clarity to the mind and reconnecting to the ‘true self’ which in turn impacts on physical well-being.
When your life force energy is low, you may feel fatigued and become prone to developing illness or disease. This depletion of energy can also lead to stress and anxiety that may prevent you from living up to our full potential. Forms of energy healing, like Reiki, can help to reverse, or at least mitigate these symptoms of energy loss. During Reiki, energy is transmitted through the hands to help bring the person back into a state of balance. When you achieve this rebalancing of life force energy, you are more able to diminish or prevent illness and disease, find peace and contentment, and to enjoy life to the fullest.
Reiki may have any of the following effects depending on the individual:
A clinical study about the use of Reiki during pregnancy carried out at Hartford Hospital, CT from December 1999-December 2000 showed improvement of anxiety in 94%, improvement of nausea in 80%, improved sleep in 86% and reduction in pain in 78% of the pregnant women who participated.
Reiki is safe and can be used in any trimester, stage of labour and/or postpartum recovery.
