Frequently asked questions
Will my session be covered by insurance?
Will I have to undress completely?
No, you may dress down to your comfort level. Most clients will leave their underwear on and nothing else, but you may take off or leave on as much as you feel comfortable.

What is Craniosacral Therapy?
Created in the 1970's by Dr. John Upledger, Craniosacral Therapy is a gentle therapy that evaluates and helps balance the craniosacral system, which is comprised of the cerebral spinal fluid and the membranes that house it in the brain and the spinal cord. As your nervous system absorbs the stress and strain of daily life, tension is created in the body. However, your body can only take so much strain before this tension creates dysfunctions. This may negatively affect various body systems, most notably the central nervous system which is housed within the craniosacral system.
What do Fibromyalgia, stress, and anxiety have in common? An overtaxed nervous system?
The nervous system controls the body's "Fight or Flight" response to stress. The response helps to protect the body from danger. The nervous system sends signals to the body to ready itself for action, then after the threat is over, the body is supposed to resume a normal rest or neutral response. However, when someone is under chronic stress or suffering from fibromyalgia or anxiety, the nervous system is constantly in the "Fight or Flight" response. It can't shut off, and the body stays hyper-vigilant, eventually causing dysfunctions throughout the body, such as tense muscles, inability to sleep, digestive issues, and impaired cognitive abilities. Every system in the body is affected making it a whole body disease.
How can massage help?
Everyone knows massage decreases muscle pain and tension, yet are you aware that massage also affects the mind? At Point Clear Wellness, I use gentle massage techniques to calm the nervous system, promoting deep relaxation of the mind and body. This deep relaxation stimulates the body's natural Rest and Digest response and promotes better sleep, improved cognitive ability, a better response to stress, more energy, and less anxiety. These benefits can easily last several days, and regular treatments can improve your daily life.
