Are you ready to rebalance your health and rekindle your passion for life? I’m Christine Shelley and I can help. I integrate traditional with alternative in my treatment approach to help people who are in pain find harmony and balance in their bodies and their lives.
If you’re in pain you need more than just symptom relief. You need a gentle solution that gets to the root of the problem. This is where my approach, incorporating craniosacral therapy, can help. Craniosacral Therapy is a gentle, profound treatment which uses very gentle touch to encourage the release of stresses throughout the body, supporting your body’s innate ability to balance, restore and heal itself. It is often found to be helpful where other forms of manual therapy have been unsuccessful. It may be just the answer you are looking for.
My traditional medical model of how to treat pain was turned upside down when I took a course in Craniosacral Therapy. This course challenged and changed my perception of how to treat pain and led me to integrate Craniosacral Therapy into my treatment approach.Read More

Frequently Asked Questions
What is Craniosacral Therapy?
Craniosacral Therapy is a gentle, profound treatment which uses very gentle touch to encourage the release of stresses throughout the body, supporting your body’s innate ability to balance, restore and heal itself.
How can Craniosacral Therapy help me?
Due to its gentle nature and positive effects on all of the body systems, craniosacral therapy can be helpful in a large variety of conditions and situations and can be used for people of all ages. Conditions successfully treated using craniosacral therapy include:
Migraines and Headaches
Chronic Neck and Back Pain
What is a treatment session like?
A typical CranioSacral Therapy session lasts from 45 minutes to an hour, and takes place in a relaxed, private setting. You remain fully clothed throughout the treatment. What you experience during a treatment session is highly individual. You may experience deep relaxation, insights, releases, and a sense of peace. Some people even fall asleep. At the end of your session, I will answer any questions you may have about what you experienced or what to expect after the treatment.
How will I feel after a treatment?
Just as each individual experiences craniosacral therapy sessions differently, the results can be diverse as well. You may leave in such a relaxed state that you feel like sleeping for hours, or you may leave full of boundless energy. You may feel a decrease in pain or an increase in function immediately after the session, or the effects may develop gradually over the next few days. Craniosacral therapy helps the body resume its natural healing processes and hence it is common for your improvements to continue weeks after the session.
How many treatment sessions will I need?
Each individual response to craniosacral therapy is unique and therefore the number of sessions needed to resolve any particular condition varies widely. Your response is uniquely your own and can’t be compared to anyone else’s – even those cases that may appear to be similar to your own.
