Cranialsacral Therapy in Hood River

Cranialsacral therapy is a gentle, yet powerful hands-on approach for restoring connectivity in the body. 

It targets pain, stress, and any “blockages” within cranial-sacral-based systems to release tension, restore balance, and inspire optimum health and performance.

The number of cranialsacral treatments recommended for patients vary according to the issue being treated. Acute injuries or diseases often require as little as two to six treatments. However, chronic conditions and diseases require more time to shift patterns and create a more balanced state.

About Soma

After earning a nursing degree at Pacific Lutheran University in Tacoma, Washington, I spent 10 years on the road as a travel nurse, offering my talents and skills to hospitals and patients wherever I was needed most. Specializing in obstetric care, I was fortunate to serve as an OB nurse, helping mothers deliver and providing post-partum guidance and support.

However, in 2013, my perspectives on “health” changed forever after I experienced a transformative cranial sacral treatment myself. Now, a licensed cranialsacral practitioner with a degree from The Therapeutic Training Center in Seattle,  I’m maximizing my innate talents, traditional-nursing know-how, and my more recently acquired holistic skills to deliver highly unique cranialsacral treatments. At my practice in Hood River, Oregon, I meet with patients and use my gift for “being still” and observant to hear the rhythms of their bodies.  Through these treatments—and in our stillness together—my patients and I find the solution that allows their bodies to achieve balance and heal.

In addition to being highly intuitive, I am fully committed to my patients. I simply care a lot so have dedicated my life to providing people with fulfilling experiences in health and well being.

My greatest hope is that next person will be you!

Cranialsacral Therapy Patient Reviews

GREATER PEACE & BALANCE

After just several sessions, I noticed relief from my TMJ. I also experienced a new level of relaxation from the treatments and the refreshingly free, yet rare feeling that comes with letting go of anxiety and stress. Even if I had tried to hold on to stress and anxiety during a session, Soma's healing hands and intuitive healing have now led my body to do what it's really needed. The result? Greater peace and greater balance. She's amazing!  Katie Roberts, Hood River, OR

SUBTLE TOUCH

Soma's Cranialsacral Therapy seems almost magical. Not only is she able to set me in a state of uttermost relaxation during her sessions, her methods are extremely effective.
How can a subtle touch heal anything? In my case, she was able to ``cure`` my reoccurring headache. I suffered years of feeling a constant pressure on the outside of my head, where conventional doctors tried recommending everything including MRI and serious painkillers.

She is knowledgeable, very professional and extremely attentive. She truly listens. I would highly recommend Soma to anybody searching for an unconventional therapist, deep long relaxing massage or an alternative to a handful of Ibuprofen....

Soma, I Love what you do!!!

GENTLE TOUCH

I have had several Cranialsacral Treatments with Soma in the past year. She has a very quiet, gentle touch which was especially calming. One of my sessions I was experiencing a lot of tension in my jaw from a previous Chiropractic adjustment. Soma was still in school and just so happened to be studying the jaw. About 24 hours after my session with her the tension subsided.

She is very passionate about her newly discovered calling and is excited to create a business for herself that encourages peace, gratitude and balance in her life...in the world...and in the body. Why not start with ``the head first``.

COMMITMENT TO HEALTH

To date I have had the pleasure of receiving the healing hands of Soma Peterson on three occasions for Cranialsacral therapy. Unfortunately, I can not say that I received these treatments for any specific reason or ailment. What I can say is this therapy is like nothing I have ever experienced. I know of nothing else that can bring about such relaxation, clarity of the mind and sense of well being. It seemed as though every nerve in my body and thought in my mind had been reset to a perfect state of calm. Soma has an energy, presence and touch that is nothing short of magical. ~ Kim
