Fran has always believed in the body’s ability to reach optimal health. With a passion for continuing education and an open mind for many approaches to healthcare, she has studied many types of yoga and QiGong. In 2006, she found her calling upon completing training for craniosacral therapy through the Upledger Institute. This therapy involves a delicate touch to release restrictions in the body, thereby allowing proper rhythm to be restored to the system. The goal is to restore overall better health and increased resistance to disease by tapping into the body’s ability to heal. Fran feels honored to be able to bring this therapy to O’Shea Yoga.

CranioSacral Therapy (CST) is a gentle hands on approach that releases tensions in the body to relieve pain and dysfunction and improve whole-body health. Using a soft touch, restrictions in the soft tissues that surround the central nervous system are released. CST is also used as a preventative health measure for its ability to bolster resistance to disease. It is effective for a wide range of medical problems. The following are conditions that she treats in individuals 18 years of age and over: Stress and tension, Chronic fatigue, Migraines/headaches, Dizziness/vertigo, Sinus problems, Allergies, Chronic neck and back pain, Immune disorders, Fibromyalgia, TMJ (temporomandibular joint dysfunction), Menopausal symptoms and Preventative health and maintaining well being.
