Introduction to this blog about CranioSacral Therapy


My name is Dominique Tardif and am publishing this blog to help you understand what CranioSacral Therapy is and how it can help you feel better in a number of ways. I am a licensed massage therapist in Boise, ID and have been studying with the Upledger Institute and practicing CranioSacral Therapy since 2008. After years of doing deep-tissue massage I now find that this light touch therapy can work more deeply, more profoundly and effect more lasting results than digging my elbow into someone’s musculature. Sound impossible? Subscribe to this blog, follow the links provided in each post and you will learn that it really is possible to heal from injury and trauma with gentle, non-invasive treatment.

What is CranioSacral Therapy? It is a profoundly relaxing and effective treatment that, working with your body’s own healing processes, relieves restrictions throughout the physical and emotional body that could be inhibiting you from the fullest and best expression of your life. For a quick overview please click on this link for the Upledger Institute’s explanation:

Over the next twelve months I will be posting monthly to explain how CranioSacral Therapy can help relieve neck pain, headaches, anxiety, back pain, recover from concussion, injury, surgery, physical and emotional trauma, and more. Links to research, articles, suggested reading and testimonials will be provided for you to explore further.

Come along and join in this exploration of CranioSacral Therapy!
