Craniosacral Therapy, gentle manual therapies and heart-based therapies
Hello my friends~

I had not realized how much life would change when I sent my last newsletter March 11th.

After careful consideration for a healthy and safe environment for my clients and myself, I made the difficult decision to close my office 3/20/20 until it is deemed safe for Sari And her Hands to resume direct care.

While my gentle manual therapy practice has always been heart-centered, please know that when we are at a distance, our heart fields can still interact. 


I was listening to a presentation by Victoria Trafton about Resilience last week and heard this quote:
“The highest level of happiness is using your unique gifts and talents in the service of something outside yourself.” —Positive Psychology*
I often recommend a Resource List for my clients. This list might include a treasured photo, a phrase, a song, a breath, dance or any other favorite activity. This list is created to help bring us to the present tense and a sense of calm.

If we take the time to create this Resource List when we are calm, we can refer to it when we aren’t feeling so calm or able to come up with solutions.

Another interesting way of finding calmness is through nostalgia. 
“Nostalgic memories remind us of those we love and who have loved us, which strengthens our sense that we are not in this alone.”
—Psychologist Krystine I. Batcho, PhD
This Compassion Meditation with my mentor Michael Shea, PhD is worth 8 minutes and 45 seconds of your time.
*Positive Psychology is the scientific study of the strengths that enable individuals and communities to thrive. The field is founded on the belief that people want to lead meaningful and fulfilling lives, to cultivate what is best within themselves, and to enhance their experiences of love, work, and play.

I hope that you are finding your resources in this unprecedented time. Gratitude is a key component for our well-being.

Thank you to those staying home as recommended. And Thank You to all of the healthcare and essential workers. 

As always, please feel free to reach out to me for encouragement, a stretching idea or even a little humor.

I miss you all.



Sari blends a combination of gentle manual therapy techniques under the slow pacing of Craniosacral Therapy to facilitate calming of the tissues and nervous system. She has been on the teaching team of multiple courses in the US and Switzerland.
