CST is a gentle, manual technique that enhances the function of the Craniosacral system – comprising the membranes and cerebrospinal fluid that surround and protect the brain and spinal cord. Releasing restrictions in the Craniosacral system enhances the functioning of the central nervous system, helping to eliminate pain and stress while strengthening the immune system.


SER is a process-oriented modality that, combined with CST, can alleviate the residual effects of trauma on the mind and body.

CST and SER can be effective for a wide range of health problems including migraines, chronic neck and back pain, headaches, TMJ, ear problems, depression, anxiety, insomnia, digestive issues, and many other conditions.


Process Acupressure was developed by clinical psychologist Aminah Raheem,Ph.D as a holistic way to work with the active energy of both body and spirit for healing and growth. The session is given while the client rests on a massage table, fully clothed. The Practitioner applies firm, gentle finger pressure to specific acupoint combinations, and encourages the client to notice what they are experiencing. During a session an organic change often occurs through a shift in the body bringing insight towards past limiting patterns. This new perspective allows for personal clarity as well as a stronger flow of energy through the whole-being.
