Alex has 17 years of experience as a CranioSacral Therapist with advanced specialty training in CranioSacral Therapy and Lymph Drainage Therapy. Her core coursework is with the Upledger and Barral Institutes, both of which teach osteopathic-based therapy courses internationally.
Alex tailors each session to meet the client’s needs and utilizes a host of skills and modalities to do so, including CranioSacral Therapy, Lymph Drainage Therapy, Visceral Manipulation, and BodyInsight Neuromuscular Therapy. Since initially training as a CranioSacral therapist, Alex has specialized in working with kids from birth to late teens for addressing concerns from nursing/latch issues to school and sport performance concerns, including concussion recovery; and adults with chronic concerns such as migraines, low back injury or pain, head or pelvic injury, neck pain, jaw disorders, and accident recovery, such as car or sports accidents.
Her recent focuses include fine-tuning her skills to support pregnant women throughout pregnancy in addition to working with babies, and also help people recover from long-term health challenges and the toll this takes on the body. Alex’s most recent advanced training in CranioSacral Therapy is work that addresses more specifically structures and tissues in and around the brain and spinal cord, which helps with a plethora of things, including improved sleep, concussion recovery, and better support for conditions like Irritable Bowel Syndrome (IBS), Crohn’s disease, and Parkinson’s.
On the weekends, Alex enjoys writing, hiking, and generally exploring the coastlines, mountains, and forests.
Alex is a medallion member of the International Association of Healthcare Practitioners.
