About Carol Sherby
Carol specializes in helping others understand the energy dynamics of our bodies and how it affects the health and function of our own energy system. Carol earned her B.S. degree at Northern Michigan University in Education, her LMT certification at School of Holistic Massage and Reflexology, and her BCST certificate from the Biodynamic CranioSacral Therapy Foundation. The 2 yr. certificate program evolved directly from the pioneering work of William Sutherland, D.O., innovator of Cranial Osteopathy. She is also extensively trained in advanced CranioSacral Therapy from Upledger Institute in CranioSacral I and II, Somato Emotional Release I and II, Advanced CranioSacral I, Cranioacral Touching the Brain I CTTB1 and CSLRAP Reversal of the Aging Process and Reiki Master since 2000.
Carol can help you understand the amazing energy field that surrounds our bodies and is the basis of everything we experience in life. Our bodies have an intricate circuitry that is constantly evaluating and re-evaluating the network of interrelated tissues and fluids which make up the central nervous system. Carol, a health and wellness advisor, is passionate about Craniosacral Therapy (CST) and takes a holistic approach to healing. Integrating CST with diet and nutrition, Carol can guide you in understanding this life energy and how constrictions to nerve fibers can arise in response to physical injury, stress or emotional trauma. She will help you, through CST technique, achieve balance, promoting wellness in mind, body, and spirit.
