Maggie offers CranioSacral Therapy (CST) to clients who want to experience a gentle, hands on healing technique that releases tensions and restrictions deep in the body. CST can provide relaxation to the body, pain relief and improvement of overall health. During your session with Maggie, her hands “tune-in” and listen to your body, and your body leads the treatment. As a mother of four and former Lactation Educator, Maggie desired to be of service in a field of work that brings together science and the healing arts. She found this in CranioSacral Therapy. When Maggie was introduced to CST it immediately struck a chord with her; after she experienced a session herself she knew this was what she wanted to do.
In her sessions, Maggie conveys the presence of being grounded, non-judgmental and nurturing. She believes that living is a process and would like to be one of your resources. Her goal is to contribute to a supportive environment for her Clients. She received her CST education from the Upledger Institute International which is recognized worldwide.
Why did you become a CranioSacral Therapist?
I spent quite a few years trying to find a new career that aligned with my desire to provide assistance to others. I became a Lactation Educator and really enjoyed helping new mothers breastfeed their babies. Yet something seemed to be missing. I really wanted a way to bring the alternative to the mainstream. I joined Breastfeeding LA to connect with a wider group. At one of the task force meetings I met an extraordinary woman who introduced me to this new and powerful therapy-CST. After doing my research and receiving my first treatment, I felt an awakening and knew this was my next career path. Within a few weeks I was enrolled in massage college and began my studies to become a CST practitioner through the Upledger Institute International (www.upledger.com).
Why did you decide to become a part of the Healing Collective?
After building a private practice out of my home in Hermosa Beach, I was intrigued with the concept of the Healing Collective. Being a part of a “collective” seemed so positive…a place where all parts make a much bigger whole.
I believe it personally offers me the opportunity to make more connections in the wellness community as well as provide referral options for my clients. I look forward to the camaraderie inherent in interacting regularly with other like-minded practitioners.
What is your most favorite aspect of/what excites you the most about what you do?
For the last 30 years I have been a big believer in alternative modalities to support allopathic medicine. Until I had my first CST session, I had no idea that a technique could be so gentle and non-invasive yet so powerful! I am awed by the body’s ability to correct itself and honored to be the conduit to help my Clients on their journey to health.
