Hello,

 

Can anyone point me to a realy great doc/practitioner who does CST for infants around Seattle (preferably Bellevue and eastside)?

 

Thanks so much

 

 

Caveat: I have found a few massage therapists online around my area but am looking for recommendations from someone who has experience and trusts their CST practitioner. Am a bit wary of CST....have read about it... but want to go to someone very experienced.

I took my 3mo daughter to Karen Santos (Manual Therapist) and I was very pleased. Her tension and kinks related to a quick birth and tongue tie were resolved in two visits where many chiro visits didn't fully resolve her issues. She's on this side though...Madison Park, just south of 520 on the Seattle side of the lake. I have her number if you're interested.

We LOVE Loretta Arvisu in Woodinville.

I remember thinking, 'now I've finally met a real live medicine woman' in the most highly professional sense there is-- a master of the healing art of craniosacral therapy who can work something like magic.

She healed my daughter's protruding occipital ridge in back of her head in just a few sessions, and I felt like I was in the presence of a miracle worker. Professional, compassionate, connected to kids, effective, able to talk about her work from a scientific, energetic, or emotional perspective.

 

She may not have a website, but you can google and her number will come up.

 

Good Luck!


community is the greatest gift we can give to each other

I know this thread is a little old but I have had great experiences with Gita Vasudeva, DC in Greenwood, Bryn Riekstins in Woodinville (she will travel to you) and Stephen Cavanaugh, DO in Capitol Hill.
