Reviews

“Thank you for your wonderful Craniosacral work yesterday. When I did my yoga/morning practice this morning I felt a shift in my hip has occurred as a result of your work! I feel more balanced over all in my hip region in a lovely way, and a change in the quality of sensation too.”

“I came to Carol within hours of a difficult dental surgery. The Craniosacral treatments I received swept away the pain and soreness resulting from my procedure. I was able to sleep through the night without discomfort and felt rested and restored the next morning. Thanks so much for those blessed treatments, Carol!”

– BG

“I am grateful for Carol’s work, for I experienced a re-connection to my heart, and a softening of my perception. The world looked brighter, more palpable when I got off the table, and I felt an overall sense of groundedness that comes with a basic sense of trust.”

– JP

“There are not many people with whom I feel as seen and appreciated as I do with Carol.  She acknowledges parts of myself that I love that I was never able to admit that I loved until they were reflected back to me by her warm presence.  Thank you, Carol, for helping me see my own self-love.”

– SA

“Carol’s care and healing energy is palpable in Craniosacral sessions. I have experienced deep physical release and emotional/energetic shifts after working with her. Learning some of the Intuition Medicine® approach has given me new tools to access my own energy fields on a daily basis. For me, the framing of neutral separations has been a revelation and helped me better manage my boundaries and energy flow.”

– BL

“I am consistently amazed at the deep level of Carol’s work. She is so focused, responsive, creative, and spontaneous, while at the same time maintaining an extremely safe venue for effective healing work. My treatments with her have been true mind-body experiences, through which I have identified emotions stored in my body–in the form of stagnation and pain–and with Carol’s hands-on help have been able to release them through the act of recognizing their cords through my body.”

– RF

“Your work yesterday was incredible – I felt so light and vibrant all day – lots of movement in all my bodies.”

– RP

“Thanks to Carol and EFT, I now have a simple and safe technique to clear out and transform emotions, thinking patterns, and behaviors that have presented obstacles to living a full and creative life.  With EFT, I have been able to expand my compassion for my limitations and meet myself in the moment with greater awareness and improved clarity.  Thank you Carol, for providing a safe place to take the plunge and get to the root of what is blocking my journey.”

– DC

“Carol’s work was great in balancing and calming my body after whacking my head getting into my car.  On another visit when I was stressed and headachy, her work fully relaxed me and I slept great afterwards!”

– MP

“I enjoyed this new perspective and it was very gratifying to meet and spend time with so much more of myself then I am usually aware of. I am writing to say thank you. And to express my appreciation for this work.”
