First Appointment: $145
This initial appointment is all about getting to know you and welcoming you to the practice. Your session will include a comfortable intake discussion, assessment of your craniosacral system, and treatment. Please wear comfortable clothing and refrain from wearing belts, and buckles (supportive or adaptive braces and equipment are just fine). This appointment can take upwards of two hours, so please plan your day accordingly. Before booking your first appointment, please fill out the Intake Form and review the Cancellation Policy. Thank You.
Returning Appointments: $110
After your initial appointment, your sessions will be approximately one hour of table time.

As a mother, client and patient of EDS, Eloise Stager, CST-D, has defined and refined craniosacral therapy treatment protocols for those with EDS and continues to derive new techniques and adaptations for each of her clients. Eloise has spent several years researching, practicing and implementing CranioSacral Therapy techniques to specifically address the unique qualities of people with EDS. Each session and treatment is tailored to the specific need of the client at the time of the appointment. Due to its effect on the central nervous system, CST can address many EDS specific issues, including pain management, subluxations, TMJ dysfunction, Sacro-iliac joint dysfunction, dysautonomia, anxiety and depression. Additionally, co-morbid diagnoses such as chiari and tethered cord can also be addressed.
Scope of Practice and Diagnosing: Eloise Stager is a Licensed Massage Therapist (LMT) in the state of CT and a Diplomate Level CranioSacral Therapist (CST-D), trained through the Upledger Institute, based in Palm Beach Gardens, FL. A massage therapy license limits the scope of practice to soft tissue evaluation and manipulation and does not permit diagnoses, prescriptions, or medical referrals or imaging. Support and recommendations or suggestions is acceptable and encouraged within the massage therapy profession. Eloise Cannot Formally Diagnose EDS. Eloise often receives requests to help confirm or make diagnoses of EDS, but diagnosis falls outside the parameters of her licensure. She offers thorough evaluations, education, guidance and resources along with a “best guess” conclusion. It is strongly recommended that you seek confirmation from a rheumatologist or geneticist.
EDS Eval and CST Treatment: $275
This appointment is especially appropriate for those who are not sure if they have EDS. During your Eval Appointment, you will have an opportunity to discuss all of your symptoms, demonstrate, describe and score (within safety) your Beighton Score, and ask any questions you may have. A thorough musculoskeletal evaluation will take place along with a CranioSacral Therapy Eval and treatment specifically designed for Ehlers-Danlos Syndromes. This appointment is approximately three hours long; please plan your day accordingly.
EDS Eval: $75
The EDS Eval is intended for those who think they may have EDS and simply want a consultation without a CST treatment. This is a discussion-based appointment with a musculoskeletal evaluation. A diagnosis cannot be given, but you will be offered education and recommendations.
(If you have already been diagnosed with EDS and simply wish to have a craniosacral therapy appointment, please book under “First-Time Appointment” or, if returning, book under “ Returning CST Appointment”.)
Pediatric Under 12 Appointment: $70
Infants, toddlers and young children can greatly benefit from CranioSacral Therapy to help with sports related injuries, school, anxiety, depression, autism, birth trauma, etc.
Pediatric (12-18): $90

Half-Day Comprehensive $330
The Half-Day Comprehensive offers an extended but relaxed session (with short breaks) to help support you on your journey to healing.
Your appointment will be approximately 3.5 hours with breaks.
MultiTherapist One-Day Comprehensive $650
