Often I hear a comment from my patients 'I slept like a baby all night' or 'Recently I have started to sleep better' and 'I woke up totally refreshed'.

I am Carita, certified craniosacral therapist. I was introduced to craniosacral therapy by a fellow massage therapist back in 2007 - and I knew this therapy was what I had been looking for all my life! I was lucky enough to study with Upledger Institute, Florida.

And I am most grateful for the opportunity to practice and learn more.
