I have worked successfully with clients suffering from the wide range of conditions listed below. In many cases, their symptoms have disappeared completely. Clients have experienced relief from physical and emotional pain, recovered from injuries, gained greater mobility, and obtained relief from chronic conditions through my unique methodology.
CranioSacral Therapy and Soul Dialoguing can help correct imbalances and improve many physiological and psychological conditions. Commitment to regular sessions enhances the potential for healing. While not recommended as a replacement for the care of a traditional physician, these modalities complement other treatments and promote well being for both adults and children.

CST has provided tremendous relief for many people suffering anxiety, depression, panic attacks, and other emotional issues. In studies by Dr. John Upledger, the founder of CST, it has been shown to produce dramatic and encouraging results for patients with post-traumatic stress disorder.
Headaches and Migraines
Headaches are alleviated dramatically with CST, especially if the sufferer seeks treatment immediately at the onset of symptoms. The longer one lets the condition continue, the more time it can take for improvement to occur. The success rate with CST for headaches is in the 90th percentile.
Cancer patients can find relief from pain and a lessening of anxiety through CST sessions. The relaxing nature of CST helps them maintain a positive mindset which in turn helps them cope with the disease. Because CST restores harmony in the body, it bolsters the functioning of the immune system which is so critical in recovery from all cancers.
Disorders of the Immune System
Because CranioSacral Therapy improves blood and lymph fluid flow to all organs and tissues, it is ideal in treating the disorders of the immune system. This increased circulation facilitates efficient collection of waste products and distributes the blood cells and antibodies which protect us from viruses, bacteria, and toxic elements throughout the body.
Recovery from Surgery
Surgery can take a great toll on the body, causing pain, depleting the immune system, and leaving patients feeling both physically exhausted. CST greatly enhances post-operative rehabilitation and promotes faster healing.
CranioSacral Therapy can help victims of stokes return to normal functioning provided that they begin treatment within two months after the stroke has taken place.
Allergies, Asthma, and Respiratory Conditions
More and more people are developing allergies and respiratory conditions due to environmental issues and the stress-filled world in which we live. In common ailments such as asthma and sinus blockages, CST contributes to opening up the bronchial passages and neutralizing many allergic reactions. Allergies often have an emotional component, and CST is particularly effective because it works on both the physical and psychological planes.
Pain and Fatigue
CST has much to offer people with fibromyalgia, chronic fatigue, muscle spasms, and severe back, neck, and joint pain. Because it is a non-invasive treatment and uses only a very light touch, CST is often recommended for people with painful conditions. As restrictions and blocks are released, the tension on vital structures is decreased, and pain is reduced as the craniosacral mechanism rebalances. During sessions clients are coached to be as relaxed as possible so they can gain the full benefits of the therapy. The more they are able to relax, the more effective the therapy will be for them.
Orthopedic conditions including back and neck issues can be debilitating, but even individuals unable to walk or bend over can be helped with CST. Pain can be relieved and mobility can be restored in the majority of cases. CST is also helpful for sciatica and scoliosis as well as injuries such as whiplash.
Central Nervous System Disorders/Neurological Issues
CST can benefit people with Parkinson’s disease, epilepsy, and cerebral palsy as well as sufferers of seizures, tremors, and problems with motor coordination. The natural rhythm of the body is restored through the treatment, and stress, which is a great contributor to these conditions, is released.
CST can help women experiencing cramps and other menstrual irregularities, problematic issues of menopause, and even PMS.
Vertigo and Ear Infections
Vertigo and ear infections can leave people with impaired motor coordination, loss of balance, and the inability to focus without experiencing nausea. CST has been very effective in helping neutralize these symptoms and returning the client to normalcy. Blanca has treated clients with vertigo who have never experienced any further episodes after receiving CST treatment.
Infant and Childhood Issues and Disorders
CST can help infants who are experiencing a wide range of conditions including colic. Often infant and childhood issues are caused by birth trauma, and CST is unique in its ability to quickly get to the root of the problem. In cases of autism, children can be helped, but a commitment to regular sessions is essential.
Attention Deficit Disorder (ADD)
Blanca has successfully treated children, teenagers, and young adults with ADD using CST and experienced a 100% percent success rate. Functional levels were restored within 15 to 25 sessions in all clients. Each individual will progress at his or her own rate.
Temporomandibular Joint Syndrome (TMJ)
According to Dr. John Upledger, the founder of CranioSacral Therapy, the cause of TMJ could be childhood anxiety that perpetuates into adulthood and causes individuals to clamp their teeth together hard. It could also be caused by an off bite or even a bad low back which throws off balance throughout the back, neck, and head. Because of CST’s capacity to relieve stress and balance to the autonomic nervous system, the therapy decreases muscle tension and provides great relief to TMJ sufferers.
Help for the Terminally Ill
Blanca assists individuals with terminal conditions by helping them make a smooth transition throughout the dying process. The majority of her terminally ill clients experienced a decrease in pain, felt at ease in saying good-bye to their loved ones, and became peaceful about the prospect of making their transitions. When Blanca makes home visits, the sessions are respectful, private, caring, and loving. The comments she has received from family members reveal that the sessions helped their loved ones immensely, some of them even dying peacefully within a few hours after the session was completed.
