Like most Mothers, I found the first few months after having my daughter trying, both physically and mentally. I experienced pain in my back and arm from feedings and holding my baby. I was exhausted by the sleepless nights. And mentally drained from the worries of now caring for another human being. For the physical ailments I sought out help from my chiropractor, acupuncturist and Physical Therapist. While each of these modalities eased my pain and kept the discomfort at bay, the pain would return. During a CST session for my daughter (post a lip and tongue tie release procedure), I mentioned these pains to the practitioner. I scheduled an appointment for myself and after the first session I immediately experienced relief - both physically and mentally. My life was changed. My back pain was gone. My arm pain was gone. And although still tired, the feeling of complete exhaustion was gone. I felt like someone had hit a reset button and I was able to better focus on both my daughter and myself.
After my maternity leave was over, I found it difficult to schedule appointments for both me and my daughter. I then looked into becoming a practitioner. I left my 17-year tenure in the corporate world for one in alternative healing and have never looked back. I study with Dr. Ron Wish, a leading CST practitioner in the Northeast, at the Great River Craniosacral Therapy Institute for my beginning, advanced and continuing trainings. In addition, I also take courses at the Upledger Institute International, “a healthcare resource center recognized worldwide for its comprehensive education programs, advanced treatment options and for its unique outreach initiatives.”
Although my postpartum days are behind me, I continue to receive CST sessions on myself to cope with everyday stresses and to maintain a healthy balance in my life.
I hold an Accounting Degree from the University of Connecticut.
