Bhakti CranioSacral Therapy
With Stewart Snyder
Bhakti CranioSacral Therapy clients experience relief from migraines, pain, fatigue, stress, insomnia, and anxiety, while reporting experiences of feeling calmer, more connected to themselves, and more agile in their daily functioning.
Bhakti CranioSacral Therapy is a unique light-touch, energy-based protocol, that is done in roughly one-hour treatments over the course of three initial sessions. It is a combination of the Upledger CranioSacral Therapy 10-step methodology, Hugh Milne’s vision of a sacred and honored connection within CranioSacral work, and the fundamental concepts of Bhakti Yoga.
This unique modality is designed to activate self-healing and wellness by encouraging the central nervous system’s natural rhythms with the energy - prana - of the heart. Through a protocol of gentle touch, the loving energy of the heart is expanded to balance the membranes and fluids of the craniosacral system, allowing you to feel more like yourself and encouraging general well-being of your entire system.

“CST has been nothing short of miraculous for me. I have tried several different healing practices over the past several years, and this is the only one that has been able to successfully alleviate my migraine headaches. Stewart's approach to working with individuals is both warm and intuitive. I can't recommend him more highly.” -Page B.
"My first, but definitely not my last CST session: I was skeptical going it, but wow, my head is still spinning (in a very nice way) 24 hours after my first session CST session with Stu. Getting a massage has always been a treat for by body and soul, but my first CST experience went way beyond any massage I have ever had. During the session, I discovered an out of body experience, as my mind and body were literally floating similar to sitting on a raft in Jamaica. I was keenly aware of my body working as a singular, cohesive uni...like a fine-tuned Jaguar automobile. Today, I am unusually relaxed despite the stressful workload that landed on my desk. I am breathing very comfortably, similar to how I breath when taking a walk on the beach. Thank you Stu. Suffice to say, CST is a must-have, one-of-kind experience.” -Mark S.
"I have had 3 [CST] sessions and not only am I clearer and more focused during the day, I wake up happier than usual every morning. In addition, my brain won't stop with new ideas for my business. It's crazy! I love Bhakti Craniosacral therapy now. You have to try it if you want to clear up negativity, need a clearer focus & get rid of that brain fog, or open your mind!"- Kristi P
"Stepping into Village Wellness is like stepping into a magical, stress-free little pocket of happiness. I loved the environment there, it feels like a welcome community. I have done Craniosacral Therapy with Stewart there. There are not a lot of places to try CST, and I've heard mixed reviews about it, but I thought it was worth a try. I think the key to CST is finding someone knowledgeable and capable, and Stewart is truly a gifted healer. It was a trans-formative experience for me, and my recommendation is that if you are at all interested, to just give it a try, and focus on relaxation and meditation, and Stewart will do the rest! I highly recommend this community, and especially Craniosacral with Stewart!" - Lauren N.
What does a Bhakti CranioSacral Session feel like?
Bhakti CranioSacral Therapy induces a deep state of relaxation by turning off our fight or flight mechanism and allowing the body to rest and digest. During this state, our subconscious begins to work at unwinding the tensions and mis-corrections in our body.
Therapy is performed fully clothed, supine, and light touch is administered over the length of the spine, the head, and the sacral bone. Light touch is also performed at the feet, above the knees, on the stomach and heart.
You'll often feel gentle movements in the physical body, emotional releases in the form of tension or tears, and a sense of something bigger. The work is a trigger for the body; additional feelings can and will arise 24-36 hours after a session. These include a sense of euphoria, less anxiousness, deeper sleep, and a stronger sense of balance / peace.
How does it work?
Bhakti CranioSacral Therapy works by encouraging the rhythmic pulse of the Cranial Spinal Fluid (CSF). This fluid surrounds and nourishes the working of the central nervous system, which sends and receives sensory signals to every part of the body. A stronger, more rhythmic system produces better feeling sensations through it.
Why should I try it?
Relief from headaches, migraines, anxiety, insomnia, depression, and general malaise are treated with Bhakti CranioSacral Therapy. Clients also experience emotional support, stability, and strength that stems from a deep connection to your inner light and wisdom.

If you're new to Bhakti CranioSacral Therapy, we encourage four session done over a relatively short period of time. We offer a 4 session package if you are interested.
4 Session Package (save $50)
- The first session resets and ignites the healing nature of the system.
- The second session acts as a "check-up" to see how the body has responded to the first session. It should be scheduled in one to three days from the first session.
- The third session is a full protocol again with additional direction toward the places in the system that have a need for additional care. This session is scheduled about a week from the second session.
- The fourth session is a full protocol again designed to create a "memory" for the system to return to. This session is scheduled about a week from the third session.
Ongoing, there is not any "too much," and a regularly scheduled session helps keep the body in it's natural healing rhythm. Weekly, bi-weekly, or monthly are all normal time-frames.
