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.


Take some time. Treat yourself. You deserve it.
