Welcome to Lisa Shelton LMT – a dedicated myofascial release and craniosacral therapy practice in Staunton, Va.

Myofascial release and Craniosacral therapy are two treatment approaches which utilize hands-on bodywork to help release and relax the fascial system. What is the fascial system? That question is still being asked as researchers are continuing to uncover the importance of this connective tissue.  The reality is that fascia is everywhere in the human body. It works as an extensive web, allowing for structural support and cellular communication. It is directly influenced by our sympathetic nervous system to be reactive and protective in nature. In many respects, it is our 6th sense. And for many reasons, it can be at the core of many physical and mental ailments.
Headaches, neck and shoulder tension, back pain, depression,  anxiety, chronic pain or fatigue, insomnia, digestive disorders all can be helped by working to allow greater movement within the fascial web. Myofascial release and craniosacral therapy offer clients greater insight into the state of their own nervous system, where they hold energy, and how to ease and deepen access into the part of the nervous system that allows the body to naturally unwind.

In short, Myofascial Release and craniosacral therapy allow you to get back in touch with you.

And for any healing practice, that’s a great place to start.

Hope to see you on the table.


Myofascial Release?

Fascia can tighten with physical and mental stress creating a soft tissue “straight jacket” in the words of John Barnes, PT.

To feel better, this straight jacket has to be released, layer by layer.



and Astrology?

Yes indeed!  Fascia makes up the human energy field that surrounds your body.  And the planets make up the field energy that your body must play in.   Problems come about when we don’t use our energetic gifts .  And those problems show up in the form of fascial restrictions, erratic behavior, poor sleep and digestion, anxiety, depression – just to name a few.   Astrology is a tool to make you conscious of the energy flows around you.  And most importantly, how you can utilize your own energetic blueprint productively in the midst of the cosmic changes.   In short, astrology can guide you back into being the very best you.  And THAT makes the body feel good.




Do you think astrology can be summed up by that silly pick up line from the ‘70’s,  “Hey baby, what’s your sign?” 

Well think again.  You are more than just your sun sign.  You are in fact a conglomerate of energy from a multitude of planets in numerous signs of the zodiac.  Exciting right?  And unpacking the natal chart will give you glimpses into the person you are destined to be.  Because being you, works way better than being someone else’s version of you.


Take some time. Treat yourself. You deserve it.
