Andrea Byers, Craniosacral Therapy

I will be out of the office for a period of rest and renewal Sept. 1- Oct. 3, 2019. Please consult my resource page for therapists that refer to in my absence.

~Notice of new office location: As of Nov. 1, 2018 I will no longer be at 440 Grand Ave.

My new office location:

5730 Market St. Oakland, 94608

Please let me know if you have any questions regarding the move. There is a flight of steps outside to get to my new office, with no elevator, so please let me know if that will be an challenge for you. There is a parking lot for the building, and ample street parking! Looking forward to seeing you soon!

My hope is that you can use this website to learn about Craniosacral Therapy for adults, infants and children, as well perinatal services.

My resource page offers information to help you connect to other therapists and services in the community, and ultimately resources within yourself! I’m currently still building the resource page, so check it often to see what has been added.

This home page is intended to list upcoming offerings and events, listed below, that are related to healing work and craniosacral therapy specifically. Please visit the other pages for more detailed information, about me and how to schedule an appointment. Please feel free to contact me with any questions!

I just returned from an amazing Infant & Maternity Craniosacral Conference hosted by Carol Gray in Portland!

I’m feeling so refreshed and inspired after spending 5 days with my colleagues from around the world, including members of  my gifted community here, in the bay area, whom I work with offering our FREE INFANT CRANIOSACRAL CLINIC every month (more information is posted below, on this page). We shared and learned together how to continue to serve Mom’s and Babies through our hands-on craniosacral practice!

I was blessed to hear presentation on breastfeeding and tongue tie by respected lactation consultants Alison Hazelbaker, PhD, IBCLC, FILCA, CST, RCST and Melissa Cole, IBCLC, RLC. These women are on the cutting edge of this issue and generously shared all of their clinical experience and current research on the topic.

An amazing presentation was given on Torticollis & Plagiocephaly – Breastfeeding Impacts, Treatment Plans & Prevention Strategies, by Michelle Emanuel, OTR/L, CST, NBCR, CIMI; Carol Gray, Midwife; LMT, Alison Hazelbaker, PhD, IBCLC, FILCA, CST, RCST.

I also had the honor to experience a profound presentation by Etienne Peirsman on the beautiful process he uses to meet babies and help them resolve tension patterns in their systems.

A presentation on baby wearing and the most developmentally safe carriers on the market by Tanja Martinson, LCBE, brought me a lot more information to share with my clients when they are trying to make the best choice when purchasing this equipment for their new babies.

Lisa Gillispie, BSW, LMT, CST, CPT-RES (who’s alignment video is posted below on this page), shared with us some of the most recent understanding of alignment and how it effects us in prenatal, birth, and postpartum comfort and healing.

Those are just a few of the names I’m dropping out of shear excitement and gratitude to have had the opportunity to participate in this wonderful event, and bring all of this back to my work here with all of you- my lovely clients!
