Welcome, new and returning clients. You can book online here. Newly Expanded hours! More morning and late afternoon/evening appointment times now available.

I no longer require clients to mask, however, I will continue to mask for foreseeable future.

Cancellations due to Covid and respiratory illnessness still come in regularly, so thank you for helping prevent respiratory symptoms from spreading.

If you are in wait of an appointment, I look forward to being with you. In the meantime, please check out The Tides, Sitting Butterfly, and Chronic Pain Recovery. They offer some of my best recommendations for a lifestyle of softly turning toward our deepest resources of healing and thriving.

 

My teacher Ursula Popp said our health depends on our ability to connect with our deepest tidal expression of cerebral spinal fluid, and its called the Long Tide. She passed along the teachings of the Cranial Osteopaths from a hundred years ago; that the Long-tide is the state of self-healing, self-regulating, self-rejuvenating mode that our heart and higher glands are built for, rooted in the blueprint of health, homeostasis, and wholeness from the unfolding of our very own dna. Long-tide is what Ursula referred to as our ultimate resource of well being in this life: the place where we are already whole and never broken. It is Life. Let's connect to the forces through which life unfolds its mysterious grace. 

I learned in 2021 that Native American indigenous healing traditions informed the father of Osteopathy, Dr. Andrew T. Still, who is also the grandfather of Cranial Osteopathy and Craniosacral Therapy. Dr. Still, whose indigenous connections were long obscured, was an American Civil War physician who later cured thousands during the great epidemics of the 1800's. His bloodline included Shawnee and Lumbee and alongside these paternal relatives he also spent time learning with their healers. The cornerstones of listening and "aligning with" that run through the offspring of traditional (hands only) Osteopathy arise from indigenous bone-setting traditions found in pre-colonial Americas, Northern Asia and throughout the world.

A Coleville, as well as a Coast Salish tribal person were both kind to teach me and encourage me in the ways of smudging, prayer, and holding sacred space, decades ago. Smudging is the use of burning specific plants, such as cedar, that release volatile oils long-venerated for purifying energy fields of a person or a space. Rosewater endeavors to venerate, learn and incorporate wisdom from Indigenous teachers, who graciously share ways of honoring nature around us and within us; inspiring us to further the inquiry of right relationship to all that is.

All my relations, may you be happy.

"Craniosacral is a revelation to me;  an elegant weaving of natural principles and phenomenon in the evolving field of the healing arts.
It integrates possibilities for ease, the somatic experience of mind-body unity,
anatomy, physiology,
foundations of osteopathic medicine,
therapeutic listening and witnessing.

It engages the self-healing that is already present, inviting one into relationship
with the creative emergence of one's own spontaneous being,
connected to ancient patterns all life share."

 Our blueprint already contains natural potential for the biochemical states of solution, grace, balance, grounding, health and ease. The integration of these is experienced as inner harmony.

 

It is my personal experience, and the experience of so many, that Craniosacral Therapy is one safe, effective way to access our inner harmony. This reflects, little by little, into an experience of harmony into life's outer expressions.
