Carolyn Sawin, Craniosacral Therapist

Contact information: 802-881-9553

Introducing another new colleague, Carolyn Sawin. I am very excited to have craniosacral therapy at 161 North Street.

Carolyn Sawin is a certified craniosacral therapist who has practiced craniosacral therapy since 1999. As a healer, her goal is to assist clients in achieving greater health at the physical, emotional, and spiritual levels through a combination of craniosacral therapy and other healing modalities including polarity therapy, reflexology and holographic memory release (HMR). Her approach to therapy is based on the belief that each of us has the innate ability to heal ourselves, and it is the job of the therapist to facilitate in this process.

The primary modality Carolyn uses, craniosacral therapy, entails a light touch to sense and support the health of the central nervous system and the surrounding bones, connective tissue and fluid. Polarity and HMR are both gentle, energy-based healing therapies that work to unblock restrictions in the human energy field and to release “somatic memories” of past trauma from the cells of the body. Reflexology entails the use of light to medium pressure on specific points of the feet, hands, or ears to encourage release elsewhere in the body, as each point is viewed as corresponding directly to a specific body part or organ. The combination of these healing modalities encourages increased movement, flexibility, and relaxation in the body, as well as a greater sense of emotional and spiritual well-being.

Carolyn Sawin received her training in craniosacral therapy at the Body-Mind Academy in Bellevue, Washington, and was one of the first students of Charles Daily, who developed the HMR method. Additionally, she has a Ph.D. in anthropology from the University of Washington in Seattle, and has taught anthropology at the high school and college levels. In her free time, Carolyn enjoys traveling, playing cello and singing, and spending time with her husband and daughter.
