“Healing may not be so much about getting better, as about letting go of everything that isn’t you–all of the expectations, all of the beliefs–and becoming who you are.” -Rachel Naomi Remen

The Subtle Body with Erik, 60 minutes, $100
CranioSacral Therapy (CST) is a light-touch (often the weight of a nickel) manual therapy approach to addressing imbalance in the body. It releases tension deep in the body to relieve pain and dysfunction, improve whole-body health and performance and allows the entire body to relax and self-correct. Few body structures have more influence over your health and well being than your central nervous system. And few body systems have more impact on your central nervous system than the craniosacral system–the soft tissue (fascia) and fluid that protect your brain and spinal cord. By freeing the central nervous system to perform at its best, CranioSacral Therapy naturally eliminates pain and stress, strengthens your resistance to dis-ease and enhances your health and well being. A CST treatment allows you reconnect to your subtle body through light touch; a welcomed change from our aggressive urban lifestyles. “Many people have a belief that life is difficult and healing is painful. CST helps them let go of that belief. The healing process can be much more gentle and subtle.” Wear loose comfortable clothing (no jeans or bulky items).

Couples treatments are currently as available pending availability of two bodywork practitioners on the given day. While we don’t offer couples treatments in the same room, we may be able to accommodate you and your friend, family member or loved one in separate treatment rooms. Since The Blue Buddha hosts only 2 clients at a time, the space will feel like your own. When booking your 60, 75 or 90-minute appointment, schedule 2 treatments with 2 different practitioners at the same time (for the same length of time). Please feel free to email Erik at firstname.lastname@example.org and he can assist you since it can be challenging to match two open appointments when scheduling online.
