CRANIAL SACRAL & REIKI SESSIONS

Adrianne Butler looks forward to helping you dive deep within your body to sit in the quiet space of the nervous system. The body and all its emotional and physical experiences are a unique expression of each individual’s life, and the patterns and choices each person makes. During a session with Adrianne, you will relax into a state you may not have the opportunity to be in very often in our busy lives. Here, you will experience the magic of your nervous system unwinding, undoing patterns that have been silently holding the body in physical and emotional pain possibly for years. Cranial Sacral is a gentle non-invasive, hands-on method of evaluating and enhancing the body’s own natural healing mechanisms. This is a great treatment for ongoing issues such as:

  • Migraines & headaches
  • Neck, shoulder, & back pain
  • TMJ
  • Ear infections
  • Eye or vision problems
  • Learning & attention disabilities
  • PTSD
  • Traumatic brain & spinal cord injuries or concussions

Adrianne has been doing body work since 2000 and has found this to be one of the most rewarding and powerful styles to receive. She hopes you will give it a try!
