"You are a physical house having mental thoughts in reaction to emotional experiences that build a spiritual reality."
Carolynn Thompson ~ Neural Palpation Specialist
Integrated Cranial Health is a chronic pain clinic specializing in unresolved pain in all the houses that make up your whole being.
Carolynn Thompson, LMT, CST, ICT, D.o.N, has been a manual therapist with a specialty in chronic pain for over 20 years. Her focus is to provide lasting relief to the wonderful clients who come to see her dealing with injury, pain and health issues that are complex or difficult to diagnose. Her focus through the nervous system allows her to address an issue physically while working with the pains connection to one's thoughts, feelings and beliefs.
She is the founder of Integrated Cranial Health and the originator of Neural Palpation, a touch-based modality born from her meticulous study and hands on healing work with pain mitigation. She fought her own spinal pain to discover a path through that included dealing with each house inside the individual.
"That which must go through the physical house has been grounded by another house. Sometimes it is just pain but many times, it is the unraveling of long held connected pain born through mental acquisition, emotional reckoning and spiritual birthing."
Carolynn offers online and in person sessions from her hometown of Sonora, CA,
Due to the pandemic, her Bay Area office is closed until further notice.
What is Integrated Cranial Health?
Integrated Cranial Health is a chronic pain clinic and educational hub that focuses on relieving pain, stress and trauma through therapeutic, neurologically focused touch. Neural consent, neural trust and neural ease lead the treatment techniques.
Clients have the option to receive treatments in person or online. Online clients and students learn to provide effective manual therapy for themselves, their loved ones, clients, or community. Each session is tailored to the individual and the development and discovery of their pain connected through the physical form.
ICH works holistically and skillfully, giving room for the emotional and mental healing that takes place alongside the physical. We work to gently guide the whole system, rather than just one part, into a state of neurological harmony.
All sessions begin with an intake. Intake is 60-90 mins long. The intake includes an assessment of how the spine is balanced from left to right, how the spine is connected to the skull, the compaction of the muscles, an assessment of how we sit and stand, placement of our joints and more. There may be more or less as each assessment is tailored to each unresolved pain the comes into the clinic. With over 20 years of experience, no one assessment works for everyone.
From here, joy and ease are born
Conversations from the Table
It all began and will always begin with the client and their full need of expression. As clients physically healed, conversations were often held around how to incorporate mental, emotional and spiritual healing for a full form sensation.
Clients began to ask for recordings of the conversations had in session. These recordings became beacons of trust and security. The neural sessions became a place where topics could be discussed without judgment, pain, shame or disgust.
Conversations centered around an individual's life and the moral, ethical and social challenges that came up in real life situations. Clients realized that from a place of neural calm-we could begin to have conversations that were safe in the discovery of that which is often taboo or viewed through discretion.
