I’ve been suffering from chronic pain around my scapula and nerve pain in my lower arm and hand for 3 years due to an impinged nerve in my cervical spine. I tried multiple therapies to ease the pain in order to avoid surgery, but had little luck in keeping the pain at bay. My sister, who is very knowledgeable about alternative and holistic therapies, recommended I try CranioSacral Therapy, which I was unfamiliar with. I wasn’t sure how to find a therapist in this area, but asked my chiropractor and acupuncturist who referred me to Linda Hellman.
I’ve had a few sessions with Linda now and can attest to their effectiveness in easing my pain. As Linda works on me, I transition to a very deep state of relaxation, yet am fully conscious of my surroundings and am acutely focused on how my body feels. I can feel the pain “melting” and sliding away from my body. I feel energy flowing through my body and nourishing it. I feel totally in tune with my body and as if I’m working in partnership with Linda to get rid of unwanted pain and tension. At the end of a session, I’m left with a strong sense of well-being and pure contentment. I have significantly less pain – sometimes none! I feel strong and happy and at peace.
Linda is among those rare individuals who are true healers. There is healing in her touch. I am grateful to have discovered her and be benefiting from her gifts.

I’ve been Linda’s client for 14 years. About 4 years ago, she introduced me to CranioSacral Therapy as an alternative for pain and stress management. To be honest, I was a little skeptical but when the session was over, I felt an overwhelming sense of relaxation and peace. CranioSacral Therapy does work, and I trust Linda’s approach to improving my lifestyle. Since that initial treatment, I’ve included CranioSacral Therapy as an essential part of healthy living.

I was grateful when a friend at the Body Therapy Center introduced me to Linda, as I had missed the therapeutic effects of CranioSacral Therapy after moving from California. My neck, shoulder and low back were hurting as a result of many months of packing up and then unpacking our household during our move to Palm Coast and I was afraid that I might never find a good CS therapist here.
During a CranioSacral Therapy session I feel myself relax in the quiet fragrance of her treatment room as I surrender to Linda’s light healing touch; I feel areas of tension and tightness in my body shift and there is an experience of openness and spaciousness. At the end of a session I often feel incredibly light, perfectly aligned, tensionfree and joyful.

The first time I came to see Linda for a CranioSacral session I was completely stressed-out and didn’t even know it! All I knew was that my neck and shoulders were hurting and I was grinding my teeth at night. When I got off the table that first time I felt like I was walking on clouds. Nothing could disturb or upset me and this wonderful feeling stayed with me for several days. Now I schedule my session on a regular basis every two weeks and this hour of total surrender and relaxation helps me take on the daily challenges in a more calm and mindful manner. And my neck and shoulders don’t hurt any more, either.

For many years I have struggled with chronic lower back and shoulder pain resulting from various sports injuries. Although I exercised and did stretching, the chronic pain had not been successfully reduced. In looking for an alternative I discovered Craniosacral Therapy and found Linda, a highly recommended craniosacral therapist. She was very professional and personable in her approach. She explained everything thoroughly and made me comfortable in understanding the process and how the therapy would impact me. She worked with me to develop a treatment strategy that was designed to address my personal needs. Over the last year my pain was significantly reduced both in intensity and frequency. I believe in a preventative approach to health and wellness management. Linda and Craniosacral Therapy have become an integral part of that approach. Thank you Linda!
