“I initially schedule a CraniaSacral Therapy and Integrative Massage appointment with Denise Obray…just as a “treat” to myself. I also mentioned that a decade’s old shoulder injury had recently returned leaving me unable to do simple things like write or hold a book for any length of time The first two treatments were relaxing and comforting. I expected the same of the third session. Instead, I was amazed! I left the office without a hint of pain, and have been pain-free for the nearly two weeks since!” –Layne Hackett, Auburn CA
“My first experience with a craniosacral massage was deeply relaxing, and I felt very restored after the experience. Thanks Denise for taking the time to talk me through the process before we started. I’ll be back” -Amanda P., Auburn CA
“Had my first session of cranial sacral with Denise and had a perfect experience! It has been over a week since my session and I’m still feeling an over all positive effect on my mood and well being. I have my second appointment schedule and can’t wait. I would highly recommend Denise to anyone.” – Kim B, Auburn CA
