Remote Craniosacral Therapy

I have been practicing various forms of distance healing for 15 years with great success, and am delighted at how well Remote Craniosacral Therapy works as a Telehealth modality. The type of CST I do involves no manipulating of the body, which allows me to work via video or phone with clients. My work alleviates the impacts of concussions and brain injuries, treats chronic neck and back pain and is effective at treating emotional trauma of many kinds. Why? Because it realigns the bones and tissues of the body, which improves the functioning of the central nervous system and brain. Shifting a client's body out of activation/fight-flight or collapse/freeze allows all the parts to work better as a whole: this results in improved immune system function, organ function, sexual energy, memory and thinking processes. The more that clients experience the peace that comes from my work, the more stable they become, emotionally and physically.

Along with Remote Craniosacral Therapy I use a variety of other somatic healing techniques to help clients heal:

-Shamanic journeying, soul retrieval and visualization
-Coherence Therapy that re-programs the parts of the brain that hold the imprints of past traumatic experiences (impicit/unconscious memory)
-Depth Empathy that uses relational neuroscience to re-pattern areas of the brain that we use for decision-making, self-evaluation and creativity

I trained for six years in Quechua (ancient Peruvian Inca) healing techniques, many of which are still widely practiced and taught. I have moved away from the cultural trappings of that tradition and into neuroscience/evidence-based healing techniques, but there is a lot of overlap. This is deep healing work that is gentle, yet gets to the roots of behavioral patterns, addiction and survival strategies that we have sometimes used our entire lives to feel better. It frees up our creativity and empowers us to be our authentic selves.

Barbu is a gifted and dedicated healer. After the only session I was able to have with him before he moved to Oregon, I felt better than I had in years. He is a true teacher and explained the process and technique thoroughly before and during the treatment. I'm very grateful to have been able to work with him! And that he recommended another therapist to work with in his absence. Thank you, Barbu! Craniosacral therapy continues to help me heal mentally and physically from a battery of stress-related maladies.

Barbu and I worked together for nearly a year, during which time I experienced a profound transformation in my emotional state. I was struggling with anxiety and on a number of medications. Through weekly treatments which eventually became bi-monthly, I was able to wean off a number of medications and feel much more relaxed and focused at work. The work we did was truly incredible and I'd recommend Barbu to everyone!

"Barbu started craniosacral therapy with me a few months ago. He is a trusted, kind, and gentle professional therapist. Whereas my cognitive therapy was based on verbal communication, craniosacral sessions are more experiential. I can feel past stressors, not so much as thoughts but as a presence in my body. With Barbu’s brief suggestions and using his techniques, we are able to locate past and present stress areas in my body and release them. I always feel incredible afterwards."
