Welcome Home to Yourself!

And welcome to my CranioSacral Therapy practice in the heart of downtown Missoula!

Shana’s Heart of Healing offers wholistic support for wellness and radiant health. CranioSacral Therapy uses light touch to treat causes of pain rather than symptoms. The balanced flow of fluids and energy is essential to the body's self regulation and self-repair. By gently releasing layer after layer of restrictions in the connective tissues from the skin down to the deepest structures of the body, CranioSacral Therapy helps the body heal itself. It addresses body, mind and spirit as a unit.

Somato-Emotional Release, an advanced aspect of CranioSacral Therapy, addresses the physical aspects of emotional blocks that interfere with personal growth and evolution.

I call my practice  "Shana's Heart of Healing" because I work from the heart and with the heart, and my goal is to get to the heart of the issue, so that you can heal from the inside out. 


Some people claim that love is the opposite of fear. I don’t agree.

Experience indicates that not just life, but also “the web of our love is of a mingled yarn, good and ill together”, to paraphrase Shakespeare. How often do we live in fear of losing what we love! Parents can attest to the panic that grips their heart when they hear their child was involved in an accident or diagnosed with a potentially deadly disease. Loving does not lessen the fear; on the contrary: It intensifies the fear of loss.

After two accidents I am afraid to ride my horse, despite the fact that I love her dearly, and I love to ride. Loving does not lessen my fear. Trust, however, gives me courage to get back in the saddle again. I am convinced the opposite of fear is trust.

What is trust? It is a conviction that ultimately the world is a safe place to explore. No matter what happens, I will be okay. Whatever life brings, I have the resources to deal with it.

This conviction is natural to a small child. But a traumatized person will lose trust and struggle long and hard to regain it.
