Cranialsacral Therapy

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

It targets pain, stress, and any “blockages” within cranialsacral-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.

Developed by Dr. David Hill, a leading expert in integrative medicine and therapeutic applications of essential oils, the AromaTouch Technique improves well being by reducing physical and emotional stressors and by supporting healthy autonomic function. 

The technique uses CPTG Certified Pure Therapeutic Grade™ essential oils in four primary steps. 

Each step includes the application of two essential oils or blends specifically formulated to support healthy emotional and physiological functions for well being and requires 60 minutes for an unparalleled grounding experience for recipients.

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 Cranial Sacral 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!!!

GIFTED SEER AND HEALER

My sessions while in Hood River with Soma were awesome. She's such a gifted seer and healer, and I feel her gifts are growing. Her touch is astoundingly gentle and yet the power of her energy clearing is palpable. She is so present for your session's needs, and what the body is screaming for. She also will inform you of subconscious data you are ready to face, and she will do that very kindly and gently. When we are ready to face a trauma, sometimes its better when a kind therapist tells you what really you already knew but could not voice. She sees the story the body is telling. It was a pleasure and honor to work with Soma and I'm so bummed I dont live in Hood River to come see her regularly. You will love your time with Soma and you will leave the session changed for the better. Go see her!!

COMMITMENT TO HEALTH

To date I have had the pleasure of receiving the healing hands of Soma Peterson on three occasions for Cranial-Sacral 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
