Alyssa Frey, M.S., OTR/L

Craniosacral and Occupational Therapist

CONCEPTION & PREGNANCY

What conditions does Alyssa specialize in? 

  • ​​Chronic back, neck and joint pain
  • Morning Sickness
  • Fatigue
  • Emotional Difficulties
  • Difficulty with Conception
  • Stress/tension related issues

The birth process, beginning with conception, brings incredible changes for the expectant family.  The belief with Craniosacral therapy (CST) is that the human body wants to correct or heal itself.  CST can be utilized prior to conception (to get the body ready), through pregnancy and labor and delivery.  This technique is a wonderful complement to traditional methods of prenatal and postnatal care.


What can I expect during a session? 

 A Craniosacral therapy session takes place in a peaceful environment.  A mother-to-be is typically treated lying on a massage table or in a seated position.  Using gentle touch, Alyssa will monitor the rhythm of the fluid that circulates around the central nervous system of the mother and baby to asses potential structural imbalances.  Releasing these restrictions of the mother-to-be or baby will create an optimal environment and a body that's performing at its highest level of health and performance.  A session can run from fifteen minutes to an hour.
