Heidi Washburn is a seasoned certified Craniosacral Therapist, NYS licensed Massage Therapist, certified counselor and a teacher/mentor.
Heidi offers her deep insights, wisdom, authenticity, and knowledge gained from 25 years of practice. Her own healing journey coupled with the desire to help people on a deep and lasting level brought her to Craniosacral Therapy. This subtle but profound work suits her sensitive and gentle demeanor.
Craniosacral Therapy is a life practice for Heidi. After years of advanced studies and certification at the Upledger Institute, she found a deeper spiritual approach in Hugh Milne’s Visionary Craniosacral Therapy. Biodynamic Craniosacral Therapy with Franklyn Sills provided deeper palpation sensitivity and understanding of how embryology informs our healing process. Heidi continues to expand her knowledge, perceptual skills and her own healing.
Heidi’s Craniosacral sessions are devoted to accessing and facilitating your core healing through gentle touch in a safe and meditative environment. While Craniosacral Therapy is often categorized as an energy modality, Heidi sees it as connecting heart, anatomy and spirit. It is this synergy that makes craniosacral therapy so unique and specific. Heidi connects into the structures and fluids that surround the nervous system. Areas of congestion, restriction and wounding are dissolved allowing freed-up potential to heal and energize your body. Think of it like taking branches from a stream allowing the fresh and nurturing water to flow as it is naturally intended.
Heidi has been honored to assist healing and well-being in cases of nervous system disorders, TBI (traumatic brain injury) TMJ issues, whiplash, PTSD, brain dysfunctions, emotional issues, and various visceral, structural and tissue dysfunctions. She is particularly sensitive to the unseen and sometimes debilitating effects of physical and emotional trauma. She will listen deeply and work with you in attuning to your body’s messages and healing powers.
