Welcome Home to Yourself!

And welcome to my integrative healing practice in the heart of downtown Missoula!

Shana’s Heart of Healing offers body-mind-spirit integration, combining my 30 years of experience as a licensed physical therapist with 25 years of healing energy work. My manual skills include craniosacral therapy to Advanced level, therapeutic touch, energy balancing, lymph drainage therapy, myofascial release, joint mobilization and medical massage. I combine my skills intuitively guided by the Inner Wisdom of my client’s body to remove obstacles in its healing. I emphasize compassionate body awareness to promote health and happiness.

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. 

Self Realization

In October I participated in a Clinical Applications training in Colorado. We were 6 students, two teachers, and we worked on each other and clients for 5 days. At the end of the class I passed my final test for Techniques Certification. I am now the first Upledger Techniques Certified CranioSacral Therapist in Missoula!

When someone asked Dr. John Upledger what CranioSacral Therapy ultimately is all about, his answer was: "Self-realization."

Later he was asked why he persisted in publishing and teaching his ground breaking techniques despite massive and vitriolic resistance from the medical establishment. He had a very successful private osteopathic practice and did not need to expose himself to attacks and ridicule from his peers. To this he responded that this work is a way to World Peace. He was willing to face the storm of opposition because he saw the greater picture as more important than his own comfort.

So how are Self-realization and World Peace related to one of so many manual therapies? 

(I intentionally capitalize the S in Self as a reference to the Soul-Self rather than the survival self or ego.)
