Judson offers therapeutic massage by our licensed massage therapist who has years of experience with residents, staff and members of the community.
Biodynamic Craniosacral Therapy (BCST) is a powerful approach to wholeness that involves a gentle, non-invasive, hands-on method of “listening” (with and through the hands) to the body’s subtle rhythms. It invites the body’s own self-regulating capabilities to begin to resolve patterns of pain, stress and trauma. It is appropriate for adults, children and infants. By beginning to embody and practice these skills, participants will have an invaluable tool for self-care, great health and greater well-being. Sessions are by appointment only. Call Marcey Mougey at 216-791-2393.
