Dr. Leslie Bedell of Agape Chiropractic Healing Center in North Bend has completed her advanced training in craniosacral therapy at the Upledger Institute in Palm Beach, Fla.
"Although I have been doing Upledger work for the past 10 years, this workshop was the highlight of my learning experience. Not only did I become clearer and more sensitive as a therapist, but I also honed my skills to better help my clients free themselves of restrictions and constraints that are preventing them from finding freedom in all areas of their lives," Bedell said.
Craniosacral therapy, as taught by the Upledger Institute, works with the craniosacral rhythm, utilizing gentle contacts on the cranial bones, skeleton and facial tissue to facilitate release of tensions that may be preventing proper flow of energy or fluids. Those who receive this therapy have reported improvement in a wide array of conditions, including chronic pain, headaches, TMJ, infertility, ADD/ADHD, immune dysfunction, nervousness, fibromyalgia, insomnia and depression.
Bedell uses craniosacral therapy in conjunction with gentle, tonal methods of chiropractic care on all her patients. " ... All my clients get some craniosacral therapy. They report they feel more relaxed and are able to hold their chiropractic adjustments longer."
