I can’t tell you how happy I am to be at work, doing what I love most.
For the health of myself, my family and all my other clients please reschedule your appointment if you have fever, sore throat, cough, or any respiratory infection.
Please consider getting a negative Covid or Flu test if you are unsure of your symptoms.
If possible I request all paperwork be filled out prior to arrival.
Craniosacral Therapy is a light touch therapy with profound “big gun” results. It works with your body’s central nervous system and uses the pulse of the cranial rhythm throughout the body allowing adjustments to occur. Lisa D’Angelo sees your body and how it functions as a whole, not as broken separate pieces. It is important as a therapist to understand how the body is connected via all its different neurons, tissues, bones, muscles, cells, lymph, etc. Lisa also examines and works with any emotional components the body is holding onto. Think of it like connecting dots on a cellular, tissue, and muscular level. A session can recharge the central nervous system, release muscular tensions, reverse old holding patterns. All of this can lead to an elimination of chronic pain and strengthen your immune health. Craniosacral Therapy will also relax you to the core while offering overall health and resistance to disease. Lisa’s treatment goals are designed to holistically treat each individual.
Lisa has been helping families for over a decade.
During pregnancy CST can help prepare mom for an optimal labor and birth by releasing restrictions in the pelvis and easing back and hip pain. This can promote optimal fetal positioning and may ease the need and/or recovery from any necessary invasive procedures. Lisa has found her prenatal and newborn appointments are a sacred journey that transforms the bond between baby and expected mother and caregivers.
Pediatric Craniosacral therapy begins at birth and extends to age 9, at which point the delicate bones of the skull have developed. Prior to this, special techniques are used. Parents and children can expect a relaxed environment filled with anything from comfortable nursing pillows to toys for the older kiddos. All clients are met where they are at, which is especially important to respect when clients are non verbal. Working with children reinforces that there are so many other ways to listen.
Lisa is especially proud of her sessions that cater to whole family dynamics and has been honored to participate in family care clinics throughout the state of Texas.
I know it can be hard to get out of the house with a newborn which is why I offer at home visits for babies under 3 months old.
Older children benefit from Craniosacral therapy too for the following: headaches, learning challenges, growing pains, emotional difficulties, earaches, dental and orthodontic treatments, & sleep disorders.
I started practicing CST back in 2004, but my journey began a decade before when I had a series of small strokes and a bad fall. My first Craniosacral treatment literally changed my life. My personal experience has propelled me to learn about holistic ways we can boost our immune systems, fight inflammation, reduce stress, and recover from musculoskeletal dysfunctions. I am passionate about acknowledging the mind body connection in all of my work and I am thrilled to be on your journey of self care, to feel better, and give you an extra boost, or the missing ingredient, towards your healthier self. I am honored to be a teaching assistant for the Upledger Institute for both their lower level and advanced courses.
"I first went to Lisa at the recommendation of my sleep medicine doctor. That was 5 years ago and I’ve been seeing her ever since. Lisa’s sense of intuition never ceases to amaze me. When I was sick with COVID, Lisa did a phone appointment with me and even from across the city she made me feel better. Craniosacral in general, and Lisa in particular, have made more of a lasting difference in my life than any other form of body work. Her skill, intuition, wisdom, and heart are just a handful of the reasons I love and trust her."
"Lisa is a blessing. I have been working with her for the past year. As an acupuncturist, massage therapist, and practitioner of energy medicine myself, I am extremely particular about who I entrust with the care of my personal being. Lisa is one of only four people, nationwide, whose work transforms me at the soul level. Because my vocation involves working with many different people suffering from a wide range of conditions, it is imperative that I stay as healthy and balanced as possible. Craniosacral sessions with Lisa not only keep me centered and strong, but also help me to remain open to growth and change. When I work with her, my creative potential takes shape. My dreams begin to manifest. Regular sessions are a top priority. I hate to miss a week."
"It felt like my ovaries just got a hug. Your magic is good. I will be scheduling another appointment with you soon."
