Healing After Car Accidents

Motor Vehicle Accidents often referred to as MVA’S happen frequently and cause significant physical and emotional trauma affecting many areas of your life and well-being. This is a crucial time to receive proper care which includes Craniosacral Therapy.

If you are experiencing any of the following symptoms following a car accident, please call us.




Burning Or “Pins & Needles” Sensations, Tingling, or Numbness


Back/Low Back Pain

Poor Sleep, Fatigue, Depression

Neck/Shoulder/Arm Pain & Stiffness

Neck/Shoulder/Arm Pain & Stiffness

Cognitive Function, Poor Concentration


Immediately after an auto accident, the profound relaxation benefits of Craniosacral Therapy (CST) reverse the effects of the trauma on your central nervous system. CST settles your brain back into your skull. It facilitates the relaxation of restrictions and compressions in the fascia allowing space for muscles to relax. It promotes circulation of blood, lymph, and cerebrospinal fluid allowing the inflammation to subside. Specific injuries are addressed such as neck pain, headaches, whiplash, back pain, shoulder sprains/strains, hip pain, etc. Therapeutic bodywork helps restore and improve range of motion and prevent myofascial adhesions and the formation of scar tissue. Receiving proper treatment now will eliminate musculoskeletal issues later on in life.

If you were involved in a Motor Vehicle Accident (MVA) in the State of Washington, your medical expenses are covered under PIP (Personal Injury Protection) insurance unless you request otherwise. It applies whether you, or another driver were at fault, or if you were a pedestrian or on your bike. It is your legal right to choose the practitioner(s) you want to work with. We will work in close communication with your Attending Physician through all stages of treatment.

What Patients are Saying…

I really enjoyed my craniosacral therapy session with Kathleen Yow-Wells. I had my second ceserian birth three months ago and my body was not feeling 100%. Kathleen was able to rebalance so much and also let me know some weak points that are going on. I’m now taking proactive steps to continue the healing process. Thank you!

Kathleen is a truly gifted practitioner. I have seen every type of professional for an old back injury. I had just resigned myself to dealing with chronic pain. With Kathleen, I feel that she can make some permanent changes.
