Connect • Heal • Thrive


Offer yourself the time and space to stop doing and just be. Connect to the core of your true self through craniosacral healing. Together we will experience the  unlimited potential of the sacred healing space nurtured by conscious touch.

"Every drop knows the tide"

~ W.G. Sutherland



As the world turns and our busy modern lives persist, craniosacral work offers you a chance to slow down and experience the stillness of connecting with your true nature. Residing in this connected space offers the possibility of deep releases of physical and emotional stresses held within the body.


Given the opportunity, your body's innate wisdom will focus its efforts and resources on healing. Craniosacral work encourages unrestricted cerebrospinal fluid movement and mobility in the tissues and bones of the craniosacral system, allowing the central nervous system to realign and automatically promote integration and healing in the entire body.


Craniosacral work allows you to cultivate your own wellbeing by quieting your mind, calming your nerves and waking up your soul. And that is a place where you can thrive!

Ellen Smith Craniosacral Practitioner

Craniosacral Therapy (CST) Diploma from Etienne Peirsman Craniosacral

Orienting to the Midline

The craniosacral work I am practicing uses a gentle, discerning touch in combination with intuitive perception to free the craniosacral system from restrictions. This allows the central nervous system (the brain and spinal cord) to function freely in controlling the actions of the mind and body, continually returning to a state of health and wellbeing. This subtle work can be a very effective way to deeply heal and balance the entire mind-body-spirit.

Craniosacral Work from a
Blended Perspective

Craniosacral Work from a
Biodynamic Perspective



"Ellen for me is both a relationship and a neurobiology expert. In her work she occupies the level of consciousness between subtle awareness of her system and holding space for mine. I came to her at a really tender time in my development, when a safe and compassionate human was just what my body needed to settle and expand. I’ve felt quantifiable healing and growth from my cranio work with Ellen, and I give her nothing but my highest recommendation." 

~ Joshua Thom

"I've been seeing Ellen for regular craniosacral work over the past year and have been amazed by this subtle practice. Ellen has gently helped me unwind stuck energy for physical and emotional healing, boost my immune system, and relax my body and nervous system. It's hard to describe cranio, as it seems to be different for everyone, but for me it is like the best restorative nap ever with energy flows and sometimes beautiful visualizations that leave me feeling rejuvenated every time! I highly recommend exploring cranio with Ellen to discover how it can support you in living your most fulfilled life."
