About the Therapist

The work that I started with you (and I hope to continue) has helped me to start to shed those burdens that are not mine to begin with and further promote the healing process that has begun..

Eloise Stager, LMT, CST-D
I have been practicing manual therapy for more than 15 years with prior years dedicated to childbirth education and patient advocacy. I was introduced to CranioSacral Therapy soon after becoming a massage therapist and fell in love with the work. I am fascinated with how the body works and the relationship among "Mind, Body, Spirit".   Each patient is unique and it is that very uniqueness that inspires me every day to offer CranioSacral Therapy and Somato-Emotional Release to those with physical and emotional pain and dysfunction.  I have dedicated my heart and hands to CST and am committed to furthering my training and practice for years to come. Additionally, I have a special interest in Ehlers-Danlos Syndromes, complex histories and trauma.
