About Carrie Hourihan CST, CMT

I am a Massage Therapist and Certified CranioSacral Therapist, who helps people with chronic issues rid themselves of stress and pain. Some of the problems my clients have experienced relief with include: headaches and migraines, fibromyalgia, TMJ Syndrome, vertigo, neck and pack pain, scoliosis, stress and tension related disorders and central nervous system disorders.

What differentiates us

I incorporate CranioSacral Therapy, the Acupressure energy meridians, Visceral Balancing and different styles of Eastern bodywork modalities such as Shiatsu, Thai Massage and Tui Na. The bodywork I offer helps the body heal at a core level and releases old emotions which no longer serve us.

How we were trained

I earned my CST certification from the Upledger Institute. The Upledger Institute (UI) is a healthcare resource center recognized worldwide for its comprehensive education programs, advanced treatment options and for its unique outreach initiatives. Currently, I am improving my training and experience by studying Visceral Manipulation and Neuromeningeal Manipulation at Barral Institute. The visceral (organ) work brings my clients many benefits. These areas are rich with nerves, blood and fluids. Organs can store and express metal and emotional tension. Visceral Balancing can release emotional and physical tension that can eventually leads to disease. The Neural work is also an important layer of bodywork. Our nervous system's first order of business is to protect us. Many times a muscle will tense to protect an impinged nerve. By treating and freeing the specific nerve instead of all the tissue around it, the muscles can then relax.

Why we love what we do

I love being able to help people alleviate the pain in their life. I have found this to be an extremely fulfilling and rewarding career.
