"When I first came to see Liz I was struggling with massive anxiety and a lingering pain in my abdomen from an episode of Diverticulitis. I had made positive changes, but I felt trapped in a loop of overwhelming stress and fear. My anxiety was all consuming; I was anxious every minute of the day and every new twinge of pain or sensation in my gut put me in a state of hypervigilance about my digestive health. I didn’t feel safe in my own body. I couldn’t rest. I was withdrawing from my family.
That first CranioSacral session was a life saver for me; I came away feeling hopeful and reassured for the first time in months. All the sessions that followed have been absolutely transformational. Liz is an amazing healer and she brings the perfect balance of skill and intuition. She holds the space with authenticity, acceptance, and a comfortable reverence that makes every session powerful.
I now experience stress so differently and I feel truly free of the crippling anxiety that was overshadowing everything for so long. I feel safe in my body and I have a general sense of peace that I have never known before. I am so grateful for Liz and CranioSacral Therapy; they’ve had an incredible impact on my health and wellbeing." - A.T.
"I started CranioSacral therapy with Liz Allen over a year ago for various chronic health conditions, including digestive issues and back pain. I have seen significant improvement in my health since then (far more than I experienced after years of trying many other alternative treatments, such as Acupuncture and Chiropractic). Liz is the most supportive practitioner I have ever worked with, and I would recommend her to anyone looking for an alternative approach to improving their health." - A.M.
"I’ve been struggling with chronic Lyme Disease for over 7 years, resulting in my brain feeling foggy and tight, as well as an over-reactive sensory system causing my chest and throat to feel constricted and my heart rate to spike throughout the day. I was also feeling a lot of depression around being sick and I was nervous to try any bodywork.
Liz has a calm demeanor and creates a safe space to share trauma, or anything else that’s bothering you during the session. While on the table I noticed profound physical and emotional releases and felt supported while my nervous system began to balance out.
As a result, I felt more grounded, calmer and my spirit felt lifted. I was happier and more joyful. The congestion in my head dissipated and I had a lot more space, even in my ear canals which always feel full of pressure. I felt so much better and the progress I made was truly unbelievable. I recommend wholeheartedly that everyone try CranioSacral Therapy with Liz." - M.W.
"I went into a CranioSacral Therapy session and had no idea what to expect. Gradually, I began to realize that the physical manifestations of things I've been struggling with in my life--emotional challenges, some of which I've also worked on in traditional psychotherapy--were becoming untangled from my physical self and clearing away. CranioSacral Therapy and SomatoEmotional Release work helps me become my best, most productive, creative, available and human self. Since working with Liz, I've noticed that I can think more clearly about what is going on for me, I feel any range of emotions more courageously, and I deal with life challenges in a more even-keeled, balanced way." - S.S.
"Shortly after bringing my first baby home from the hospital, I found myself waking up during the night frantically searching for my baby in the blankets (as she lay peacefully in her bassinet). After attempting meditation on my own and finding no resolution, I decided to reach out to Liz Allen for help. Liz was understanding, patient, and able to provide me with some immediate short term ideas even before my appointment. After the session I found I was more calm, less stressed and getting some much needed sleep! I couldn’t recommend CranioSacral Therapy more." -Anonymous
"I had a calming [CST] session several months ago. Liz understands the form very well and I left feeling both rested and energized. Although Liz's touch was incredibly light, when I left it had felt like my body had received deep work. If you are looking for soothing bodywork that brings stillness and clarity, I highly recommend CranioSacral Therapy with Liz." - J.B.
