Neck and Headache Therapy
Ann-Marie uses a light touch method of releasing tensions deep in the neck that will affect the entire body.
Some practitioners believe that if the Cervical Vertebrae C1 and C2 are free of soft tissue pulling and are in alignment,
the rest of the skeletal system will follow.
Contact will be made on various parts of the neck and upper shoulders while the hands listen carefully to the soft
tissue movement. This hands on technique allows Ann-Marie to move with the soft tissue while creating
virtually no pain and allowing the body to heal. During this soft tissue movement, the Brain Stem
along with the Cranial Nerves and Central Nervous System are being treated at the same time, which may help the following

CranioSacral Therapy (CST) is a gentle, light touch method
of releasing tensions deep in the body to relieve pain. CST also releases restrictions around the brain and spinal cord to
enhance central nervous system performance and allow the body to relax and self-correct. CranioSacral Therapy strengthens
the body's natural healing processes to enhance resistance to disease and overall health. Using a light touch (starting with
the weight of a nickel) to evaluate your internal environment, this technique is used to release restrictions found.
CranioSacral Therapy has also effective in aiding the body's ability to help relieve individuals
with pain, illness and dysfunction. Including:
- Migraine Headaches
- Chronic Neck and Back Pain
- Motor-Coordination Impairments
Nervous System Disorders
- Brain and Spinal Cord Injuries
- Traumatic Brain and Spinal Cord Injuries
- Learning Disabilities
- Chronic Fatigue
- Stress and Tension-Related Problems
and other Connective-Tissue Disorders
- Temporomandibular Joint Syndrome (TMJ)
- Post-Surgical Dysfunction
Your CranioSacral Therapy session will take place
in a quiet, private setting and you will remain fully clothed in a relaxing environment. The therapist will contact various
parts of your body while listening carefully. This hands on technique allows the therapist to monitor your body's fluid rhythm
that moves around your central nervous system to locate areas of weak fluid flow or tissue movement. By locating the weak
areas the practitioner can trace through the body to the original source of dysfunction.

feeling of warmth. In the areas the therapist is working on you may feel gentle pulsing. Some people say that they feel a
sense of relaxation, peacefulness and as well as a decrease in stress levels after a treatment.
