TESTIMONIALS



Our son has always had focus issues at school and rather than turning to medication we made the decision to explore natural alternatives. We have been bringing him in for cranial sacral treatments for a year now and the results having been amazing. Cranial sacral, coupled with some extra studying at home, made for a very successful school year. Our son really enjoys his time with Tammy and with this type of care there are no chemicals or side effects.  We highly recommend these treatments to parents of a child who struggles with attention issues.

We have had the pleasure of having Tammy perform craniosacral unwinding on our 5 year-old son with autism.  We initially brought him to Tammy because he was overwhelmed with several tics, (uncontrollable body movements) particularly involving the head and face.  He was also grinding his teeth down to nothing. In addition, he was doing a lot of blurting at school.  These behaviors and movements were very apparent to everyone including the teachers and students. After only one or two sessions his tics disappeared and teeth grinding stopped.  Also, the teachers noticed that our son was not blurting anymore and was more focused at school.  He enjoys his sessions with Tammy as it is a very relaxing experience for him.   She has been a great part of our journey in figuring out the sensory needs of our child with autism as well as our neuro-typical children.  Thank you so much Tammy for all your help and knowledge you share with us.

I have been a client of Tammy Carlson for 12 years as a dental hygienist in a holistic dental practice. I fell in love! What a wonderful and caring person. When Tammy added Cranial Sacral Therapy to her professional services and started seeing patients at the Millner Clinic I scheduled a series of treatments to help with chronic overnight headaches. These treatments helped immediately, lessening the number of headaches from weekly to occasional. What a relief! An additional unexpected bonus of my treatments with Tammy was also relief from chronic foot pain caused by bunions. Cranial Sacral Therapy is a wonderful, peaceful, comforting form of physical treatment and Tammy has a great healing energy. I would recommend her services to anyone, anytime.

When my son was in kindergarten his teacher said that he was having a hard time concentrating, he was distracting other kids and at home we were seeing outbursts, night terrors and an unhappy kid. I knew that I needed to do something and I was willing to try about anything to help my son be healthy and happy. I saw Tammy's card on my refrigerator, where it had been sitting for almost 6 months,and I made the call. My son was a little hesitant as was I since I didn't really understand what cranial sacral therapy was. Tammy immediately put my son and me at ease! She explains everything fully and she has such a calming personality. My sons first session was amazing! He was so at ease and calm and even happy! That night he had a bowel movement which didn't happen very often for him, he slept though the night with no nightmares and the next week at school was great! His teacher thought that my son had been put on medication because it was such a dramatic change in behavior! Over the last 3 plus years my son has asked a couple of times to go and see Miss Tammy when he starts to feel out of whack. Most recently he told me that he couldn't sleep in his bed until we went to see Miss Tammy...he slept in his sisters room on the floor until we could get in to see Tammy. He has now slept in his own bed every night, through the night, with no nightmares since! I have my happy boy back and I have Tammy to thank!

What is CranialSacral Therapy?


CranialSacral Therapy uses light touch, at times light manual traction to facilitate soft tissue (muscles, ligaments, connective tissue), mobility, bony alignment, and physiological health. It supports and enhances the body's self correcting mechanisms and healing ability. It is based on the principles of cranial osteopathy, which focuses on the bones of the head, the spinal column and sacrum, as well as the brain, the membrane system, cerebrospinal fluid and entire nervous system.

What You Can Expect


Practitioners are trained to sense subtle changes in the motion patterns of the cranial sacral systems. Recognizing levels of stillness and movement that extend through the fascial system of the body, the practitioners work with the body through gentle touch to assist the body alignment, tissue mobility, and health. During and after treatment, most clients notice and overall sense of relaxation, and quieting of the mind similar to meditation. As restrictions are found and mobilized, the structure and function of the central nervous system is enhanced, along with the health and well-being of the body as a whole.

According to John E. Upledger, DO, OMM, CranioSacral Therapy is a gentle, hands-on technique for evaluating and correcting the functioning of the craniosacral system - made of the fluid and membranes that surround and protect the brain and spinal cord. Imbalances or blockages in the system can be the cause of dysfunction in tissues, posture, or even emotions. Based on the idea that the body has an innate knowledge and ability to self-correct and heal, CranioSacral Therapy allows the practitioner to become a facilitator working in partnership with the body to achieve therapeutic results.

Your Body Has 3 Separate Rhythms


The 3 rhythms include your heart rhythm, your breathing rhythm and your cranial sacral rhythm. The cranial sacral fluid bathes your spinal cord and brain, from deep within your skull to your tailbone. Fascia is a plastic wrap like film that covers everything in your body: every bone, organ, and muscle. This is one continuous piece. If any of this fascia has had an injury, repeated use or is imbalanced in any way, it can lead to stagnation of the energy flow through your body. This can lead to "dis-ease". Everything is connected! By complementing the body's natural healing processes, CST and Myofascial Unwinding gently and energetically finds these areas and helps your body release the holding pattern. Sometimes these are patterns that you've had for years and are unaware of. This can improve your health and wellbeing. Anyone can can benefit from this amazing, gentle, energizing body work!

MyoFasical Unwinding


Fascia is the white membrane we must cut through when separating the skin of chicken from the meat. This film like covering encases every muscle and organ of the body as it flows continuously from bone to bone. If the body suffers an injury or torsional insult, the fascia will become tight and restricted, even twisted, restricting blow flow, impinging on nerves and energy meridians within the muscle or organ. This can eventually result in "dis-ease". Myofascial unwinding can restore balance within the systems of the body.

Dynamic Body Balancing


There is a bone deep in your skull that is shaped like a butterfly. It mirrors your pelvis. These 2 bones are connected by your spinal cord and the coverings of your brain and spinal column. This bone, deep in your skull, houses glands necessary for hormone production throughout your body, including growth, sleep and reproductive. This is also the area where your body's "Status Quo" is maintained, from temperature and hunger to behavioral. If you have and imbalance in your pelvis or have had previous injuries of any kind, including those to the head and neck, your "Cranial Sacral System" can be out of balance. The connection between the "head bone and the hip bone" can become twisted and torqued, causing any number of symptoms of "dis-ease". This type of body work can help your body release long held "holding patterns" and improve your health and well-being.

What is Fascia?


Fascia is connective tissue. It's one of the most highly sensitive and interconnected systems in the body and it holds all the body parts together, basically attaching, stabilizing, and enclosing separate muscles and internal organs. If you looked at it under a microscope you'd see an organized mesh formulation of tubules filled with water. 

Your body depends on your fascia to keep things where they belong. When fascia is strained your can feel tightness and pain. Read more about fascia.
