“Allison is a gifted healer. She is extremely knowledgeable about health science and anatomy, but also is incredibly intuitive and empathetic. I credit her with helping me break a cycle of debilitating pain. Along the way, she also helped me heal from additional issues that I had been told would never go away or would require surgery. I’m ever grateful to her for her expertise and her kind and caring manner.” – Cynthia

"As a physician who supports integrative approaches to health and wellness, I can't recommend Allison and her practice highly enough."

- Monty

HIGHLY RECOMMEND!

“Over a series of sessions focusing on TMJ pain, my jaw is more relaxed than it has been in YEARS. Allison also provides helpful stretches and tools to use at home in between sessions so that you can build on your healing at home. I cannot recommend Allison highly enough!”

- Emma

YEARS OF PAIN - GONE

“I have had a fantastic experience with Allison doing Craniosacral Therapy/Visceral Manipulation. It has helped so much with my anxiety, sleep, moods and presence in my body. I came into this looking for some relief from stress and the bad headaches associated with it but found out that many of the other health issues I had been dealing with were connected in ways that I didn’t even realize! I’m so glad that Better Belly Therapies is a resource that we have available in our community.” – Gabe

MY HEALTH ISSUES WERE CONNECTED IN WAYS I DIDN’T REALIZE!

"My 6 year old daughter was referred to Allison by my physical therapist after I described her symptoms of asthma and reflux after a viral illness. After one session, she had noticeable relief from coughing, improved appetite, fell asleep easily and woke up well rested. We had a wonderful experience with the visceral therapy. I appreciate how well Allison explains the therapy and put my daughter at ease."

- Sandra

COUGHING AND REFLUX GONE!

"After months of hip and hamstring pain postpartum while going to physical therapy without much improvement, I decided to try massage therapy. I am so glad I found Allison, she has helped me find relief when I was starting to give up. She focused on muscles/areas that my PT had not that were the key to pain reduction. She is very friendly and easy to feel comfortable with and is great at explaining what she is doing. I can't recommend her enough!" - Angela

BETTER THAN PHYSICAL THERAPY

"Allison and the entire Better Belly Therapies team do an incredible job! They're considerate, caring, and compassionate. I always feel refreshed and rejuvenated after a session with them. You won't be disappointed!"

- Madison

CONSIDERATE, CARING, COMPASSIONATE

"Allison has helped me with long term digestive and pain problems. Having been in the health industry myself for decades, it was refreshing to talk to her. She clearly has an advanced understanding of how different systems work together to impact digestion and overall good health. I highly recommend her and her skill level when it comes to healing the gut."

- Lori 

REFRESHING PERSPECTIVE!

"CST is the most healing thing I’ve ever tried. I am a mental health therapist and have tried many alternative medicine therapies. After one session, I felt better than I had in five years. After three sessions, I feel I’m really healing! I use CST for PTSD, IBS, neck and shoulder tension, and feeling grounded in my body. It has helped me feel safe, able to be present, reduce fight or flight symptoms, improve digestion, and significantly reduce the pain in my head and neck. I highly recommend Better Belly Therapies. Thank you for helping me feel better!" - Cathi

GREAT FOR MENTAL HEALTH!

Craniosacral Therapy (CST) & Visceral Manipulation (VM) are fascinating and complex therapies. It amazes me that the act of applying light-touch and minimal pressure can so profoundly affect your body. There is a LOT more to this art, and it takes education, certification and practice to master it. But the general idea of it – that gentle touches on the body can bring about major changes by affecting ligaments and fascia and organs that are so deep within the body – seems unbelievable.  

But it’s real. And it works.

When we perform manual therapy, we use consistent, gentle pressure to release the restrictions of ligaments and fascia that surround your organs – allowing your organs to function optimally. We also address deep restrictions around your brain, cranial bones, spinal cord and sacrum.
Our goal is to get your gut functioning normally again. Because when you have a better belly, you have a better body – and a better life.

A Closer Look at Craniosacral Therapy & Visceral Manipulation

What is Craniosacral Therapy (CST)?

Craniosacral Therapy (developed by Dr. John Upledger) works with your body’s craniosacral system to support and nourish the central nervous system – improving health and well-being. 
This gentle technique uses light touch to examine membranes and movement of the fluids in and around the central nervous system. Relieving tension in the central nervous system promotes a feeling of well-being by eliminating pain and boosting health and immunity.

What is Visceral Manipulation (VM)?

Visceral manipulation (developed by Dr. Jean-Pierre Barral) is gently applied over your abdomen and releases restrictions in the fascia and ligaments around your organs so that the organs can move and function more optimally. It helps to achieve functional and structural balance throughout your body.
